I took Tim's tour yesterday and heartily recommend it to anyone looking to learn a lot about San Diego and the areas of La Jolla and Torrey Pines. Due to last minute cancellations, we ended up being just three guests, two of whom were from Italy and spoke limited English. Tim somehow managed to make the tour interesting for all... More

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.

My husband and I took this tour in October during a short San Diego stay. It turned out to be a great day and Tim was a great guide! We especially liked the fact that the group number is limited; we don't need "one-on-one" but it's nice not to be part of a herd. If I had a few extra... More
