When nice isn’t enough… - Not sure what to say about this tour. All in all we had an enjoyable day and saw a lot of San Diego. Our guide, Tom was nice and accommodating. Upon initial greeting, Tom asked us what brought us to LA (we were in San Diego) The downsides, Tom was our driver and guide, and heavily relied on GPS- the problem with this was he was often looking at his phone in the cup holder which caused a bit of an unsafe situation. Tom mentioned that he started doing this tour over the summer which showed. He was knowledgeable about California and we had several interesting conversations but not as much in things specific to San Diego which was expected for the price we paid. We enjoyed this being a private tour but might have learned more from a guide more experienced with San Diego. I would skip this one and find a tour with a local or “professional” guide.
