Very relaxing and enjoyable tour of La Jolla & Torrey Pines areas. Tim was full of great historical information and had some pretty cool stories to tell of area personalities. Very thoughtful...always asking if we had any questions. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Highlight of our visit to San Diego. The tour showed us things we would never have found otherwise. Tim was a vast source of information, which made the 5 hours fly by. So much to see, and tour guide could not have been more helpful.
