Welcome to the most interresting sightseeing tour of San Diego !

We will start our adventure in La Jolla with its beautiful coastal views. The surroundings in La Jolla are really spectacular, with your feet on one of the most picturesque beaches in California you can see the Mediterranean backdrops right beside it, what gives the place an awesome feeling and gives you the opportunity to take some perfect pictures of the omnipresent marine life. You are guaranteed to approach Sea Lions, Pelicans and Seals at the “children pool”.

After a ride on the top of the Mount Soledad where you will enjoy a 360 panoramic view of the county, we will visit Coronado Island, the little summer paradise located just a bridge away from Downtown San Diego. Beside its 25 miles of beautiful beaches and dunes Coronado is famous for its elegant gardens and old-world Mac Mansions and the historic Hotel Del Coronado.

After enjoying the nicest beaches in the San Diego area we will head to downtown San Diego to visit the famous Balboa Park with its 1,200 acres of urban park setting that houses over 85 cultural and recreational organizations including 15 museums. We will then stop by Little Italy which is a lovely neighborhood filled with restaurants, bars and pubs, perfect place for a night outting. Not to mention the famous Gaslamp Quarter. We will end our tour of downtown with a quick stop at Petco Park, Home of San Diego Padres.

Completing our Downtown visit, we will ride through the Embarcadero, where we will view the pier and multiple magnificient ships, including the famous Midway Aircraft Carrier.

  • The tour was EXCELLENT! Little Italy, La Jolla, Mount Soledad, Balboa Park, Old Town, Coronado, Gaslamp Quarter. We had time to stop and look around everywhere. But Roxane of San Diego Ride and Tours was great. She was so informative and interesting. We learned so much about San Diego and enjoyed the tour immensely.

  • Roxanne, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about San Diego. She was very pleasant and a joy to be with Highly recommend this tour

  • Wow did we have a good time!! Never been to southern California and our guide was very informative and made us feel a part of the community. Highly recommend!! 5 Stars!!

  • Very knowledgeable tour guide, Roxanne. We were able to see different parts of SD. Of course we couldn't get to everything but for the amount of time we were on the tour we were able to see a lot.

  • There were only 2 of us booked for the tour so I was afraid it might be canceled. On top of that, Roxane had hurt her ankle the day before, but she gave us a wonderful tour. It was like having a private Uber driver for 4 hours! She would drop us off at scenic spots and let us walk around for 15-30 minutes and then pick us up. Parking around San Diego is awful, so it was nice not to have to worry about that. Roxane knew a lot of the history about the parts we saw and was able to answer all of our questions. She asked us what our favorite place was: we could not choose one because they were all so special. She did a great job of giving us an overview of the city.

  • We loved our San Diego Tour! Our guide, Roxanne was so nice. She answered all our questions with great detail and very enthusiastically. She also made great recommendations regarding places to eat and see after the tour. We were very fortunate to have a private tour with Roxanne as our family of 4 were the only people on the tour. I was concerned that the tour may be cancelled if the numbers were low, so we were very pleased to have Roxanne and her comfortable van all to ourselves.

  • I would highly recommend the San Diego Scenic Tour. Our guide was the best. Since it was just the two of us had a driver that would take us to all the best places, drop us off and come back to pick us up. Would tell us where to go and what to see. Very knowledgeable about the area. Was so nice and shared so much information about the area as we were driving around.

  • This tour was awesome. Our tour guide was informative, a great driver, and gave us plenty of time at each stop to see all of the sights. We were unsure where the pick-up spot was and he came to get us at the beginning of the tour. We easily found parking close to the area. The goodie bag was a nice treat. I would STRONGLY recommend this tour to anyone. We saw places we would not have seen without this beautiful guided tour. Thanks Steve and Roxanne for all you did to make this so special to us.
