Description

from San Diego Sightseeing Tours
Welcome to San Diego! Enjoy the best sightseeing tour that will take you to the most places in San Diego. Enjoy a half day of discovering the historic sights of Old Town, Balboa Park, Downtown, Coronado and La Jolla.
Choose from a morning tour (9:00AM-1:00PM) or afternoon tour (2:00PM-6:00PM) daily.

To start our Tour properly we first take you to La Jolla with its beautiful beaches. With your feet on one of the most beautiful sand beaches in California, you will have an opportunity to take some perfect photos. The sea in La Jolla is very deep, attracting an abundance of marine mammals including seals and dolphins.

After La Jolla we will visit Coronado Island, the little Summer paradise located just a bridge away from Downtown San Diego. Besides its 25 miles of beautiful beaches, Coronado is famous for its elegant gardens and old-world mansions. The many little cottages and the historic Hotel del Coronado make this Island a unique holiday paradise.

Having enjoyed the nicest beaches of the San Diego area, we will head to the famous Balboa Park located next to downtown. It is a treat to visit this 1,200 acre urban park. There are over 85 cultural and recreational organizations including 15 museums. It also is home to the world class San Diego Zoo, so there are plenty of things to do.

Next we will take a ride through Downtown San Diego, including visiting Little Italy, a lovely little Italian village with lots of restaurants, bars and pubs. Passing through East Village, Downtown’s largest neighborhood we will go to Petco Park, where we will stop to take some photos. Finishing Downtown we will ride along the Embarcadero, where you can find the Pier, museums like the USS Midway, Maritime Museum of San Diego and lots more.

Last but not least our tour brings you to Old Town San Diego, the “birthplace” of San Diego. It was here, in 1769 that Father Junipero Serra came to establish the first of 21 missions that were to be the cornerstones of California. Today Old Town San Diego still preserves the rich heritage from the period of 1821-1871. It also is home to award-winning restaurants, more than 150 shops and 17 museums.

"Temecula wine region tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 22, 2020 NEW
Had a very nice trip to Temecula wine region with 5 star tours company. Don't give it 5 star only because during the booking online they didn't mention the tips to bartenders and the driver were not included in the price of the tour. They only gave this info after I booked the tour, so the price is actually higher that advertised. Overall the tour was very good, on time, informative, excellent lunch in the restaurant at one of the wineries, even though there were just the 2 of us, the tour took place as scheduled, so it was basically a private tour. At the last winery the Calloway we were given a detailed tour of their facilities. Would definitely recommend taking this tour to anybody interested in exotic wines testing. The wines of Temecula are available only by mail or locally.

I took my wife and nine year old girl and we all had a great time. It is a lovely drive up and down the coast. We got to see some beaches, do some shopping and have a great meal.

"Great trip with a great driver and tour guide."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 29, 2020 NEW
It was a very enjoyable trip to Mexico and was very straightforward. It was super easy crossing the border and our tour guide was extremely helpful! She gave us a lot of great information and history about the area and the vineyards. We went to three vineyards: L.A. Cetto, Hacienda Guadalupe, El Cielo, and Baron Balche. It was nice to eat at a local spot and have a beautiful view of the valley. The only hiccup was at El Cielo and they gave our tour away to another group, despite arriving on time. I'd definitely recommend this trip as a local and for tourists, it ran smoothly and our driver was easy to talk to and accommodated despite losing the reservation.
