Good to get your bearings - Very good opportunity to see the hot spots and plan which to revisit with more time. I left the tour in Coronado as it was the last stop and wondered around for the afternoon. Beautiful place and easy to get back to the city by Uber or ferry.

San Diego in a morning - I had been to San Diego's zoo with family twice but had never gained an oversight of the town. Our group stayed at Hampton Inn on the waterfront before taking a cruise on Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam. On the day prior to boarding we took this tour and enjoyed seeing La Jolla, Mt. Soledad, Old Town San Diego, Balboa and Coronado. The weather could have been better but now I feel familiar with the city.

Perfect overview of San Diego! - We enjoyed the tour so much and felt like it was a great overview of the various communities within San Diego. The sea lions were fascinating to watch. Each stop was well planned and we had just enough time whenever we got out. Our guide, Roxanne, was friendly and clear in all her descriptions...and a good driver! We learned a lot and got some great recommendations for restaurants that we returned to later. All was relaxed and well done!

Great 4h tour - Ron is a great tour guide (good narratives, driving and punctual). Perfect small tour to see some highlights and then decide if you want to spend more time at some of them.

Very interesting - Really relaxing. Knowledgeable and friendly guide. Lots to see. Gives you highlight's of the places you’d like to see again. The stops were just long enough. Snack and water was a nice touch.

Tour cancelled not just once but twice after being guaranteed that the tour would go the next day - Tour was canceled which I know happens but don’t ask if I am willing to go on the tour the next day and assure me that it is booked with enough people that it will definitely be held. And when I say yes. They canceled the tour for the next day. No need to lie about the tour on the second day.

Be AWARE of this company! If they don’t have enough passengers they will CANCEL your trip! - They canceled on us! the only full day we had in San Diego, which we booked online. There is nothing to add as they didn’t provide promised service! We travel by plane to San Francisco, rented a car a drove on Highway 1 to finally to San Diego!! This company CANCELED ON US 24 hr before! by text, on our way to San Diego! We were forced into searching for ALTERNATE time to spend there, in unknown to us city!
