The La Jolla and San Diego Tour begins in Old Town with a nice long stop at Mt. Soledad where you can disembark, walk around, and take pictures. I wish I could say that we saw a lot from that point on; but the fact is, we drove by a lot. We were able to see the Children's Pool, Scripps... More

We just had a private tour with Victor and it was wonderful. He rode with our family for 6 hours all over San Diego and La Jolla and the best part of the tour was the personal stories and details that he gave us regarding each site. This tour was well worth the money and we certainly had a great... More

Victor was our tour guide and did an excellent job at showing us some of San Diego's amazing sites. This tour was not rushed, Victor was flexible and went out his way to accommodate everyone in the group. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable! We highly recommend this tour!

Staying on Coronado Island without a car, we wanted to see parts of San Diego beyond the ferry landing area. The Coastal Tour with TourGuide Tim's associate Victor was a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon; from Mount Soledad to watching seals play at the beach, we learned lots of history from our enthusiastic guide and visited a nice...

The main goal of my trip to San Diego was to have a low key time and walk around outside without needing a parka. As part of the low key, I decided to go without renting a car and just use public transit, but I still wanted to see a bit more of the city. This led to TripAdvisor to... More

We made a great decision when we booked up for Tour Guide Tim's 5 hour sightseeing tour of the San Diego coastline, visiting Torrey Pines, Mount Soledad and La Jolla. There were about 12 of us in the group and we travelled in a very comfortable minibus, with multiple stops and opportunities to walk around at each location. Tour Guide... More
