I get to see America's Finest City in its full, grand scale. Through the different stops along the tour (La Jolla, Mt. Solildad, Old Town, Balboa Park, and Coronado), each part of the city has something unique to share. Perhaps once the pandemic is over with, people can get to

Thank you for your review, and I'm sorry you couldn't see in the back. There is windows everywhere on the van, and never had anybody complain they were not able to see. We do stop everywhere except the Gaslamp and Little Italy, as it;s only 2 very short streets. But I'm glad you still had a good time, and please feel free to contact us if you ever come back to San Diego! Thank you!

Roxane was very knowledgeable about the city of San Diego. She made everything so enjoyable! We were surprised that the tour wasn’t on a trolley. Instead, we had a large black van, but it was very comfortable. Roxane used a microphone so we could easily hear her. Thanks Roxane!
