It was okay, but could've been more organized. I always confirm a day ahead for my pick up time. I stood outside the lobby as instructed and they were 10-15 min late, so I called the same number back to see if my pick up was just running a little late? A female answered and said that I wasn't scheduled for a pick up and if I could walk to their office (@ the Santa Fe depot) 2 blocks from my hotel. It's funny that when I called the day before, i was told I'd be picked up in front of the hotel and now I wasn't even scheduled to be picked up. I don't mind the walk but I'm glad I don't walk with a cane. Then she says, is that okay? Do I have a choice. When I got to the depot, I get a call from the tour driver telling me he is at the front lobby. No communication what so ever!!
Another problem was that the driver/ tour guide seemed like he didn't know what to do. He said, because the group was so small what do you guys wanna do? I'm thinking, this is my first time to San Diego, am I supposed to know what I want to do? That is why I booked the tour so you can help me to get to know the city, go fig? I did enjoy the tour to an extent but

The tour was fine altought got started late. However he vehicle needs to be replaced. it rides hard and difficult to get in and out of plus seat belts are difficult to put on.

The tour guide did was a no show and the driver had to fill in with his broken english. Otherwise, it was fine. Also took the harbor cruise, no problems there. overall good experience.

We were very disappointed with the tour guide. Sure it was her first day. She could hardy speak American, had to ask the bus driver where we were and wait to read the signs. Didn't know her left from her right so we were basically past everything before she pointed it out. 45 mts late leaving!

The tour was ok. We spent way too much time going to La Jolla and at the Del on Coronado. We drove past Old Town and thru Gas Lamp district which would have been nice to spend time there walking around. Having taken city tours in many other places, this one was very disappointing. The first scheduled trip was cancelled, we found out when we showed up for the trip. We didn't get a call from them, even though I had a cell phone number on my trip. When I got home there was an e-mail saying the trip was cancelled. Not everyone travels with there laptop, but everyone has there phone.

This was our most EXPENSIVE tour and it was horrible!! We were very very disappointed and would not recommend this to anyone. Our tour guide was also our driver, was nice, but not informative what so ever! Third sentence spoke, we knew it was not going to be a good tour. We were dropped off here and there for 20 min to 30 min per stop and then had to guide ourselves. We obtained more information from the local cab drivers. When you pay for a guided tour that's what you expect and should get. Long 4 hours, very boring.....do not waste your money like we did! Find something else to do.
