Full description
This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to get out and really experience San Diego.It takes you through the best parts of Downtown, Balboa and the Old Town area, and gives you plenty of time to see all three. There will also be time to stop and check out all the sights of San Diego.  You will have more than enough time to park the car, tour the Maritime Museum and check out all of the ships. Navigate through the unique Horton Plaza Mall, and the Gaslamp Quarter to see all the sights of Downtown. From there, you can peruse Balboa Park on foot and really take in the sights and sounds. You can even go to one of the many other museums and stop to smell the roses in the Rose Garden with over 800 different varieties.  Be sure to visit San Diego’s most spooky location, the Whaley House, which is officially America’s most haunted house. All along the tour, there are many great spots to stop and take pictures, eat, drink, relax and truly experience why San Diego truly is special. Lastly, have a quick bite to eat and try some authentic Mexican food in Old Town after walking through many of San Diego’s historic buildings.
