Join a guided city tour from Orange County and experience San Diego's top attractions in a single day. Wander through the vibrant Gaslamp Quarter, see Coronado Island, explore the lively Little Italy neighborhood, and much more.

Start your private or group sightseeing tour of America's Finest City with a convenient pickup from your hotel. Then, sit back and relax as you travel to San Diego in a comfortable, air-conditioned van.

Once there, set out to discover the city's most popular sights and neighborhoods with the help of your local guide. Visit the seaside town of La Jolla and stroll through San Diego's Old Town, the site of the first European settlement in present-day California.

Continue to the Embarcadero, a busy cruise-ship hub, known for its seafood and souvenir shops at Seaport Village. Next, experience the Gaslamp Quarter, a lively downtown neighborhood, and explore the California resort city of Coronado on a peninsula in San Diego Bay.

Finally, head to Balboa Park and Little Italy, a chic, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood, packed with popular cocktail bars, brewpubs, and restaurants. Stop for lunch along the way (cost not included), choosing from one of the many trendy eateries this city has to offer.
