Overall the hop on hop off tour was the best way to see and discover San Diego. I put 3 stars only because the driver saw us running by the street and yelling to wait on a little Italy stop but he just went without us, he didn’t wait 2 minutes.

Wer auf kürzeste Zeit die Hotspots der Stadt erkunden will, für den ist die Bustour genau das richtige. Neben informativen und aber auch amüsanten Vorträgen zu den wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten durch den Guide, lernt man die schönsten Ecken und Besonderheiten von San Diego kennen.

Lots of very interesting facts about San Diego history & present happenings. Kaye was fantastic. Our only advice would be to start first thing in the morning and take advantage of as many stops as possible.
