What a great way to spend an afternoon. We visited places and learnt things that we wouldn’t have done thanks to our great guide, Jennifer, who was knowledgeable, friendly and humorous.

The tale of Old Town San Diego

Our guide, Jennifer was great! She was very knowledgeable on the history of Old Town San Diego. My only complaint is that there weren’t enough taco and tequila stops.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
So glad you had a good time on the tour - it was a fun morning and I know you had a bit of a drive to get here. The photos you took are great and I really appreciate you posting them. I hope you were able to enjoy some time in Old Town before the drive back home, and that you two will have another girls day out again soon. I'm disappointed to read your expectations on the inclusions weren't met. They are on the "what's included" section of the tour listing and also on the voucher sent by Viator. We don't expect anyone to memorize the itinerary and what is included so we review it before the tour starts, just in case guests think they have booked something other than what we provide. If it is a single group then we have some flexibility to alter the route a bit and focus more on food, though we don't include more tacos or tequila. This isn't a traditional food tour where there are multiple stops along the way. We save the food and tequila for the end of the tour as it's a fun way to wrap things up, and the restaurant we go to is exceptional. Many thanks for the feedback here - it is always great to hear what guests think of their experience. It allows us to evaluate how we do things, and make changes as needed. Thanks for providing us with that opportunity!

Great Afternoon Exploring and Learning Old Town San Diego

We had a great tour with Jennifer! Firstly, she was very considerate of the safety of of the tour participants in every regard, from Covid precautions to crossing the street. Secondly, she was very knowledgeable and entertaining in sharing the stories of Old Town San Diego. And finally, she was incredibly patient with our group and even used an app to help us identify flora and fauna along the hike to and from the Presidio. We had a wonderful afternoon exploring and learning!

Thanks so much for such nice feedback! It was a lovely afternoon with you both and I'm so glad you enjoyed our time together. I love exploring and learning too, and I'm glad to help figure out what the vast variety of plants are around San Diego, especially since they change so much through the seasons. Hope to see you out here for another tour someday. Thanks for joining me and for sharing your feedback here!

Very fun and informative tour! The tour guide, Jennifer, was friendly, welcoming and ensured everyone was safe and comfortable throughout. Most importantly though she made sure we had a good time at each stop and gave recommendations for the tacos, tequila and other must stop restaurants in the area. Jennifer even had a small souvenir for everyone at the end of the tour, which I’ve never seen any other tour guide or company provide before. This tour is a great way to support a local small business. Bathroom breaks were provided several times.

Thanks so much for the nice feedback! You two were a delight and I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour. I'm always happy to provide recommendations, especially for other small businesses, and yes, bathroom breaks are very important! I'm so glad you liked the small token of thanks as it's brand new! Hope to see you both on another experience sometime. Thanks again!

We had an amazing time. Jenn did a great job of taking us around Old Town and showing us the things tourists typically miss. She shared lots of great stories and walked us through the history of Old Town. The hike was enjoyable and the tacos and tequila at the end were excellent. If you plan to explore Old Town, do it with Jenn. You will be glad you did.
