Idyllic beaches, historic architecture and picturesque Coronado Island: discover the best of San Diego, nicknamed "America's Finest City", on this guided bus tour.
San Diego Guided City Tour Itinerary
Meet your guide at the scheduled time at Santa Fe train station, a Mission Revival-style building that gives an instant reminder of California's colonial heritage. Here, you'll board a comfortable bus ready to travel into the heart of San Diego. Did you know that this is the eighth biggest city in the United States?
San Diego is famous for its beautiful beaches, and you'll soon see why as your route takes you along the coastline of La Jolla, a popular seafront neighbourhood. Admire rugged sea cliffs, rocky outcrops and sandy beaches contrasting with the luxury feel of one of the city's most elegant districts.
Immerse yourself in nature next, discovering San Diego's green lung: Balboa Park. Spread across 1,200 acres (490 hectares), it is one of the largest urban parks in the country. As well as natural vegetation areas, landscaped gardens and walking paths, it is home to cultural centres, museums, theatres, and the world-famous San Diego Zoo.
After exploring Balboa Park, you'll delve deep into the picturesque streets of San Diego's historic centre. The Old Town, as it's known, will welcome you in with its brightly-coloured colonial style houses, traditional handicraft stores and lively squares reminiscent of Mexico.
If you thought you'd seen everything San Diego has to offer, just you wait! The next stop on your tour will be Coronado Island, a resort city home to paradise beaches and the most stunning views over the bay. You'll then head up to the peak of Mount Soledad, a hill overlooking the city where you'll be able to admire the skyline of San Diego.
Having spent four hours exploring the most important places of interest in San Diego, you'll be returned to your original meeting point where your tour will end.
When making your reservation, you'll have the option to book your guided tour with a boat trip too: complete your experience in San Diego, seeing its most emblematic sights from a new perspective on an hour-long cruise along the Californian coast.
