La Jolla Plunge Bike Tour

4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour was great! The view is amazing and we came back to Mt. Soledad in the evening to watch the sunset. If you are thinking about a bike tour, this is the one to take! For most of the way, you just have to work the brakes. There were a few small inclines. The tour guide told us to downshift for those, but I was doing much better just staying in gear and applying a little muscle.

Bike helmets were provided but no guidance on how to properly fit one so it would actually protect you if needed. The tour description mentions "custom fitted Bianchi hybrid bike". The "custom fit" consisted of us being handed a bike and then were were told to drive it down the street to see if it fit. Hmmm!

San Diego Sightseeing Tour with Optional Harbor Cruise

San Diego, California

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Sightseeing tour was good. Next time, I will try one of those hop-on hop-off ones instead.

The Harbor Tour was spent on a boat with overwhelmingly Chinese tourists. A German tourist was quite put out by their poor manners, and an Australian couple voiced a similar sentiment. My husband says they pretty much tried to push him off the boat when disembarking. If you are not looking for a Chinese commuter train experience, be selective about which boat you get on for your harbor cruise.

The cruise itself is beautiful. The city is beautiful when viewed from the harbor.

Fun tour. Whished there could have been someone taking pictures. Unlike the $20 each pics they sell after the harbor tour in San Diego, and which nobody buys, I would have bought one of those to remember the little adventure.

It was our first sit-on-top experience. They give you helmets, but no instructions on how to fit one properly so it will offer maximum protection if needed. I don't recall any safety instructions before the tour either. But our guide was very competent and took no risks. The waves were too high to actually venture into the caves but the tour was great without it.
