The tour was very informative and fun at the same time. We would not have been able to navigate our way through La Jolla without our wonderul tour guide Victor. We saw the beautiful views at Mt. Soledad, took a stroll through Torrey Pines and ended the day taking a 'selfie' with a sea lion. It was a wonderful tour... More

Tim is an excellent guide - very enthusiastic - wonderful knowledge of the area and it's history and interesting stories along the way. We highly recommend this tour. Our driver Lenny also did an excellent job and the luxury van was very comfortable ..... and warm on an unseasonably chilly day.

Our family enjoyed a full afternoon with Tim. We saw tons of sights we would never have found on our own. I would highly recommend a tour as soon as arriving in San Diego. Tim was able to make lots of recommendations to make the most of our remaining time in town.

We had ample time to enjoy lunch in La Jolla. All the stops were interesting and we were able to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. Tim is flexible... More

I have been on hundreds of tours working with the cruise lines and in my current travel job. There are great guides and there are terrible guides. Very rarely do I find a MASTER. I recently took a couple of VIP's through San Diego and hired VICTOR for the day. Prior to our arrival in California, he emailed over an... More

A great way to see La Jolla and Torrey Pines on our three day stay in San Diego. Didn't want to rent a car, and we saw and learned far more than we would have if we had driven ourselves. Tim was our guide and was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Nice bus, good driver, scenic stops, and Tim is just... More

I've visited San Diego many times, but never knew about its history or how the city has evolved. Our tour guide, Victor, was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and was able to answer all our questions. I thought it was so cool to find out that the real first flight took place in San Diego 20 years before the Wright... More

This was a great family activity to see some amazing sights in San Diego and learn a lot about the history and current impact of the city. Our tour guide was Victor, and he was fantastic.

We boarded the comfortable bus near downtown around lunch time. We were greeted by our enthusiastic guide Victor, and he gave us a quick overview of what he had planned. I honestly never realized there was so many interesting facts about how San Diego has influenced societal and historical changes in America. Overall the highlight was seeing the different species...
