“So Much Fun and So Much Information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Just completed this walking tour and can't say enough about how wonderful it was!

Our guide was incredibly informative and fun! Never have we experienced so much fun while learning about an area as on this tour. Definitely worth the money ($12) and worth the time. A great insider look into not only the history of Coronado Island yet also San Diego.

A must do!

“Marvelous view of San Diego Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is a must see place in San Diego. Wonderful beach view and green every where.
Coronado is by far the most breathtaking place to visit in San Diego.
The beaches stretch on for miles, and the views are amazing from every part of the island, some to the city, some to the wide open ocean.
The downtown part is nice, plenty of good shopping and restaurants, however I would recommend having lunch in any of the ocean view restaurants to enjoy the marvelous view

“Interesting walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I'm probably prejudiced because I love architecture, but I really enjoyed the walking tour. We started in the Visitor Center Museum, saw the Wizard of Oz house, heard lots of history of some of the people who built. Lovely Craftsman, Tudor, Victorian homes. Some business buildings looking Italianate or Romanesque. The guide was articulate & knowledgeable and had pictures
of what the area looked like in different time periods. We had lots of questions and she was able to answer them well. The only thing is I would have liked to have gone inside the Del instead of just around the grounds since it has been decades since I was there for a dinner party.

“Nothing that special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

If you have already visited some of the other beach towns in the area, there isn't anything special to recommend Coronado. A local store owner even said she takes her out of town guests to ride the trolley in San Diego instead. Wish we had just done this. We definitely enjoyed Carlsbad much more.

“Watchout”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Beautiful day in Coronado but horrible walking tour. Our tour guide walked way too fast, 3 people had to drop out of the tour. She apologized but did not change her pace or offer a refund. The tour guide was very opinionated about Hotel Del. She made remarks "like a Disneyland" and voiced that kids should not be allowed in the Crown Room for Sunday Brunch. She commented on the million dollar condo (Coronado Cays) and the jets flying over dropping jet fuel on them. She even remarked about some "yahoo" who installed a brick fence, impeding the growth of a tree on the street where "Wizard of the Oz" author lived.
