Venell_J, Apr 2023
She was very nice. And I have been on several tours and this one was the worst one we have done. Sorry
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you for your message. Sorry to hear this. We strive to make every experience a great one. We spoke with your guide and we were informed on the day of the tour that one of the group members cannot walk very long due to a previous and reoccurring health condition. The young daughter, a delightful young lady was the reason the guide spoke more of architecture and history that did not include madam ida Bailey and her group. The amount of construction in the Gaslamp district was tremendous so were the homeless people unfortunately. She was extremely sad to be unable to accommodate their needs. Any further questions, please feel free to ask us. We are at your disposal.
Great tour!

Chris, the tour guide, did a great job! It was fun to learn about the history of the Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy. Chris was informative and engaging. We stopped at a neighborhood gelato shop in Little Italy at his recommendation and the shop did not disappoint. Very good gelato and coffee drinks!
