Simply the BEST San Diego Tour
Aug 2021
WOW! This tour was so much fun! Our tour guide, Roxane, was super sweet, friendly and knowledgeable. Roxane took us to see the most beautiful places that San Diego has to offer. Her van was spotless and the views through the large windows were even better! She gave us the perfect amount of time to explore each stop. We couldn't be happier with our experience. I definitely recommend you book a tour with her ASAP!

The stops at the beach are stunning, we saw sea lions! It was so memorable had we not done the tour we would have missed out on the beautiful beaches and historical sightings!

Fantastic tour!
Aug 2021
This was my 2nd time taking a tour with Roxanne and she did not disappoint me or my family. I enjoyed her so much the first time I visited San Diego for a conference, I brought my entire family with me this time. You see all of the highlights of San Diego, get the perfect amount of time to walk around and experience the places you stop, and Roxanne offers wonderful insight into the city and the areas you are visiting as you drive around. The van is clean, well kept, and you get a water bottle and snack along with your tour information. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone visiting San Diego. Do it early in your trip so you can revisit places you like. Plus you'll get some great restaurant recommendations from Roxanne.

Great Overview of San Diego, CA.
This tour was outstanding! It provided us an informal overview of the highlights of San Diego: Little Italy, La Jolla, Mt. Soledad, Old Town San Diego, and Coronado Island. Our tour guide, Roxanne, was friendly and personable while providing a thorough overview of each of the aforementioned places visited. I highly endorse this tour for anyone visiting San Diego, CA.

The Scenic San Diego tour was awesome! Our tour guide, Roxanne, was professional and very informative. She showed us the beauty of San Diego. I had a great time visiting the popular attractions. From what I learned about San Diego, I think I may want to move there.
For anyone visiting San Diego, I would definitely recommend this tour.

Thank you for your review! So glad you had a great time! This tour is really to show you all the highlights of San Diego, as it’s shown on the tour description, as well as how much time you will spend at each location. We give 30mins in Coronado, and there is no really shopping area right next to the beach. But we also offer a full day city tour, where you can spend much more time at each location! Thank you!

Fun and informative time in San Diego!
Apr 2021
Girls trip with my twin daughters and their friend for their 30th birthdays. Our first time in San Diego. Roxanne was our tour guide. She did a great job explaining all the different aspect about the places we went on the tour. We had plenty of time to explore each stop. And the van we traveled in was luxury and clean. All four of us loved the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and request Roxanne as your tour guide!

GREAT experience!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Whenever we travel to a new city, we take a city tour to give us the lay of the land. Without a doubt, this tour was the best one we have ever taken. Roxanne did a wonderful job of giving us insight into the city, allowing us the time to explore the highlights and offering suggestions that we should explore. She was very prompt and professional, even reminding us the day before the tour about the specifics of pick up location and time. Outstanding tour!

This stops at the top tourist places for about 25 minutes at each stop. It was truly a great tour. Our tour guide (French girl, forgot her name) had an abundance of information at each stop. I strongly recommend this tour.
