If you have only one day to stay in the San Diego area this is the tour you should take. Of course if you have several days to spend there you should also consider taking this tour as our tour guide Adam is very knowledgeable and will recommend you many interesting places you could go after the tour. Had a great time!

We only had a day in San Diego, so we took the full day tour with Adam as our guide.The morning tour was of the downtown San Diego area and included all the high lights as noted. Adam gave good background and historical information about everything. His friendly and fun attitude combined with the local knowledge of the area made the tour enjoyable. In the afternoon we tour moved north to La Jolla and the beaches was filled with great views of the shoreline. A great day well spent.

We took a city tour that was divided into morning and afternoon parts. In the morning half we had the two young tour guides one was learning the ropes all to ourselves in a black Mercedes Benz Sprinter van. This portion was devoted to the downtown San Diego area and we would give this portion 5 stars. At the completion of this morning tour, the guides recommended a good place to eat lunch downtown which was less than two blocks from their office. As it has been a year since we took this tour I can't remember the name of the place but it was indeed very good! The afternoon portion went up the road north a bit and visited a beach, La Jolla, and a World War II Veteran's monument. All of these were nice but maybe not quite as entertaining as the morning session had been. Maybe we were getting just a bit tired towards the end of the tour and then the afternoon traffic picked up quite a bit which made getting out of La Jolla a bit of a drag. This tour provided a reasonable amount of stops and adequate time was give to explore during these breaks. All in all we would recommend taking this tour as a good way to familiarize yourself with the area before going out on your own.

Great way to see a lot in a day. Adam was an excellent tour host. We are an older couple so we saw and learn a lot in a short period of time with less physical stress. The highlight for us was Mt, Soledad with the veterans memorial and great view,Many stops for photos.A good value.
