What people are saying about San Diego

Fun. You had to move to keep the time slot so don't think you can stop for long along the way. We went to places that we would not have seen on our own so this made it a good value. Be sure to carry the printed map as the GPS screen cannot be seen in the daylight! We are seniors and did very well, though challenged at getting out of the scooter. Best to wear a baseball hat with visor and sunglasses under the helmet. The sun is bright!

This tour is a must when you visit San Diego. Patti was very knowledgeable of Old Town, tequila and tortillas/tacos. Her knowledge of Old Town was jaw dropping. She even knew flowers and plants. I really enjoyed the conversations about Old Town's history of the building and locations not on the tour; which we pointed out and asked questions about. The tacos were delicious and the tequila was a lesson by itself.
