Overpriced for what we saw. Nice enough guide but could not get much information. She answered questions but I could see where she’d be much better hiking or on Segway tours. We sat in the back of a van but she did not offer the front seat for better views. She stopped for us to use the rest room and get smoothies. We would probably have gotten better information from a hop on bus at a fraction of the price. Felt disconnected to what we were seeing. Way overpriced for essentially a taxi ride. No real connection with the history and evolution of San Diego.

Our driver, Judy, was very knowledgeable and had a wealth of information at her fingertips. The Cadillac Escalade was a very nice car, however, Judy couldn't figure out how to stop the heat from blasting us.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you for the kind words regarding Judy. We have a brand new state of the art Cadillac Escalade, that has all the bells and whistles. Judy, didn't intially know, but she did pull over to call me, and I walked her through how to turn the heat off. I am sorry for the minor inconvenience it may have initially caused.
Nice tour of the city

A great way to see the city in a short amount of time! Driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. Snacks and water provided. Luxury vehicle for our trip. It’s nice having a private tour to spend as much time or as little time at locations.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are pleased to hear you were able to see the city in such a short time. We look forward to hosting you on your next private tour in Las Vegas, LA or even San Diego again.
Awesome adventure around San Diego

Excellent Private Tour Of San Diego
Joan_H, Jul 2021
Would not hesitate recommending this private tour. Jeff our guide and driver was considerate of us as seniors and my husband's lack of mobility. He adapted our tour accordingly. We were picked up punctually and dropped off at our hotel in Coronado. Jeff was courteous and very knowledgeable of the history of all the sites visited and viewed from the van. A few of the highlights for us included Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial in La Jolla and Balboa Park. It was a well spent and enjoyable four hours for us.

Our tour guide Adam picked us up at our hotel and it was adventure all the way. He was well versed and knowledgeable aboutSan Diego and its surrounding area. Our private tour gave us the opportunity to see more of San Diego then we expected. Balboa Park's gardens and museums, LaHolla and the seals the Lamp Light District with it's great restaurants and historic buildings and beautiful Coronado Beach and hotel. Adam had a wonderful story for all stops and gave us enough time for photos and walking around. This tour was more than we expected. Thank you Adam
