This famous tourist spot has played host to a variety of celebrities, US presidents and movie stars over the years, and was the filming location for Some Like it Hot featuring Marilyn Monroe.

This trip was our first to the west side of the country and it was amazing. The San Diego trip was by far the best one for both of us and we had an amazing time. I do not remember the tour guide name we went 2017 May but he was the best. He was very knowledgeable and funny and courteous. We really enjoyed it. And the people who were with us some people came all the way from South Africa and England were very funny and welcoming towards each other. We highly recommend this trip out to San Diego from LA area

A very pleasant day trip to San Diego in a comfortable vehicle. Jacob was a superb guide and driver. San Diego is a lovely city so well worth the few hours on the freeway to get there and back. The itinerary covers a few of the city's key sights in the time available so met my expectations of what's reasonable in a day trip.

out of our 3 tours in Los Angeles, this was the most expensive and the worst of the tours. We were three elderly guests, the tour guide told us that he did not make a lot of money and that he would appreciate a tip but that we were not to tell anyone. Then he took us to a navel ship but he had not arranged for parking and just dropped us off in front of the place to go see it. However, since the guide was not with us, we were not allowed in. We lost over an hour just walking around trying to find our guide to pick us up. Lastly, he kept rushing us through the remainder of the things he supposedly wanted us to see and he would add that if we really wanted to see it, we could do it on our own time!! I would NOT recommend this tour AT ALL. Waste of money
