High energy, knowledgable guide. A great way to learn not only some of the history of San Diego, but see many beautiful historic buildings. Our food stops were varied and the bites just right. Having a larger group 16 proved to be a plus as we got to know other folks from different states. And China! A great way to spend a few hours.
