    Rudy was an awesome tour guide! Was very knowledgeable and got to see part of the park you’d never be able to see regularly. Even if you’re not a Padres fan, highly reccomend for being a baseball fan in general!
    Highly Recommend

    Ted was fantastic!! We really enjoyed our time and learned so much about the stadium and its context in the city’s history as well. Got to see parts of the stadium that we never could’ve imagined seeing without this tour.
    Amazing Expierence

    We have been on numerous tours of stadiums and ball parks, Petco Park ranks up there as one of the best! Our tour guide Dan, was very knowledgeable, extremely passionate and made the experience even better. Highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting the San Diego area.

    We had the best time with our tour guide Rudy. We got to see the entire park, got to take tons of photos and they accommodated us being a bit late to the original tour (we had issues finding the entrance of the park due to construction). I highly recommend!
    Press box and visitor...
    Matthew_L, Jan 2024
    Press box and visitor clubhouse best part. Expected to go on the field, bullpen and dugout but we were not allowed.
    Tour guide was awesome,...
    Oren_S, Jan 2024
    Tour guide was awesome, stadium was cool to see. Very in-depth and captivating. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
    Great ballpark
    Michael_H, Jan 2024
    Rudy took us to places we had only seen on TV or not at all. The batting cages and Visitor’s locker room were great. We gained insight into the San Diego sports history and even spent a little time in the press box and luxury suite! We had an awesome time!
    Fun at Petco Park

    Dan, our tour guide was great. Seeing Manny Machado was the best. The gift shop was very nice. I got lots of steps 😊. Thanks, Dan
    Great tour
    Stephen_M, Dec 2023
    Getting to go into the dugout and visitors locker room. We even saw Manny Machado working with one of the trainers.
    This tour is a must!!

    Great tour. I highly recommend. Purchasing tickets thru Viator there is no extra charge for processing fees. Viator gave specific instructions on where to redeem and check in.
    Must Do!

    Rudy was the BEST! We visited in a large group. My husband was born and raised here, but the Army has moved us all over. We were able to return for the holiday and his mother purchased this tour for us. We didn’t have really high expectations, he and our children have visited the park, but this blew our minds! So many stories, so much history, so much fun! Rudy was patient with us (we had 7 kids between two families), he was very proud to be a local, and he obviously has a lot of love for the game. He made the experience. Truly. Thank you for an awesome day, Rudy! We have already begun spreading the word far and wide…this is a SD must do!
    Great information

    Our tour guide was awesome. He was retired Navy. Gave a great tour. Loved the roof top and the press box. And, the umpires locker room with braille on the sign by the door.
    Great experience
    Marlene_K, Nov 2023
    Excellent tour. Highly recommend. Gets to see press area, guest dugout area, guest locker room and much more.
    Amazing tour but 1 flaw.
    zachka101, Nov 2023
    This tour was fantastic! As a life long padre fan that never had the opportunity to visit Petco I was so excited to take this tour. Our guide was super kind and definitely knew his stuff. We got to see so many places in the park and I throughly enjoyed it. One major negative was not getting to see the Padres clubhouse. The reason they gave was because it was like their “home away from home” but being that I was visiting in the off season I think we should have been allowed to see it. Other than that, it was an a amazing tour.

    I’ve toured a lot of ballparks. This was one of the best. Great time Very nice and knowledgeable tour guide
    Americana Goodness!

    Our tour guide Ishmael did a fantastic job sharing the behind the scenes stories at Petco Park and the San Diego Padres. His historical knowledge and expert storytelling ability made this experience that much more enjoyable - not to mention the picture perfect weather in San Diego!
    Real nice tour
    Peter_H, Oct 2023
    Very good tour, my favorite was the press box and clubhouse and the visitors clubhouse Would’ve liked seeing the dugout. Maybe tarped off the top so no flying golf balls would enter.
    Fun tour of Petco Park
    Brian_A, Oct 2023
    Mu husband & I enjoyed the tour of Petco Park. We especially found the costs of some of the suites and seats, pretty, eye-opening expensive! But, that's how the 1% live... It was fun to hear how Petco Park came to be built, and visiting the locker room of the visiting teams and the press box.
    Amazing tour by Ted
    Chris_A, Oct 2023
    It was a thorough and delightful tour with Ted. Really behind the scenes. Saw lots of places up close and personal that I would have never had access to or that I’d only scene on TV. Really amazing for this Padre fan.
