Dont hesitate to go on this tour as it gives you an insight of the San Diego you dont expect to see.
I would suggest using a microphone on the bus, it was difficult to hear the guide.
Overall, it's a great day trip if you've never been to San Diego!

Top Notch Tour
Fernando_M, Dec 2021
Saw the best sites to see in San Diego, CA from a top notch tour guide, all were excellent. The most memorable were the trips to LaJolla and going over the bridge to Coronado Island. Would do it again!
Great overview of San Diego

Coronado Island. We wish lunch was included along with a longer time to visit the museum and Coronado Hotel. The trip was a nice overview of San Diego and surrounding areas.
