Full description
Start your day of adventure at the scooter rental location where you will meet with your guide for your tour. After a friendly meet and greet and brief orientation session on proper use of the scooters, you will follow your GPS and set off on your multi-cultural journey through Downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp Loop. You will commence your tour in Little Italy, where you will learn about the rise and fall of San Diego’s Italian population. You will then continue on past the maritime history museum, the USS Midway, and into the beautiful Seaport Village. You will also get to travel past the Horton Plaza, which just begs to be visited again after the tour ends. Following the Horton Plaza, you will make your way into the heart of San Diego, with a quick loop around the home of San Diego Padres, and into the Historic Gaslamp Quarter. The Gaslamp Quarter, following its reinvention, is much more family friendly than it used to be. As you leave the Gaslamp Quarter, you will enter Banker’s Hill, complete with its unique shops which also border the always beautiful Balboa Park. You will then finish your tour of San Diego back at the rental location center, with a new found appreciation and knowledge of this exciting and wonderful city.

The tour is fun but the fact that you have to cross one of the busiest intersections in San Diego (I’m an SD native) was the scariest thing I’ve ever done! It’s like they immediately throw you in the deep end and if you can make it across Midway and Rosecrans to get to liberty station then you “should” be okay. Also turn on the Bluetooth for the speaker so you can hear the gps. Made a hilarious memory with a friend who was visiting so there’s that

My boyfriend and I had a blast!!!! It was so much fun and a great way to see San Diego! Only thing I would say is towards the end our butts were hurting a little lol, they need a wider seat, and just be sure to call to get the right meeting point because this app is not up to date.

It was awesome and easy to do. The talking GPS is fabulous. I would suggest wearing a sunshade cap under the helmet to avoid the glaring sun even with sun glasses on. Customer service is excellent, but be sure you check on the address of their new location which is NOT Kettner Blvd. it’s Maison Street.
