“Very Good Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

We were staying at the Holiday on the Bay and this was a convenient meeting place at the train station for the tour. Tim is very knowledgeable about the area. He made sure everyone was taken care of. Visited many interesting places, check his web site for the different stops, I really like Mount Soledad and the Veterans Memorial. Learned a lot about the early history of the surrounding areas of San Diego. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to San Diego.

“Without Tim we wouldn't have visited La Jolla - a great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

We live in Winchester, England but several times a year we visit our daughter who lives with her family in Colorado. When we come over we make a point of taking out to spend some time seeing other parts of the US. On this occasion we chose to visit San Diego which we thoroughly enjoyed and in our hotel we came across details of Tim's La Jolla tour. We took the tour and we were really pleased we did. Tim is friendly, courteous and knowledgeable and he made the tour so very interesting. We would certainly recommend any visitor to San Diego to take Tim's tour if they want to visit La Jolla.

“A wonderful tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

I had planned at least a month in advance to take Tim's tour of La Jolla, but wasn't sure if I'd have the time. I'm so glad I managed to save my last full day in SD to book this tour! Tim is an incredibly nice and friendly guy who's like a walking encyclopedia of everything to do with SD! He was able to answer any question thrown at him, and was able to explain it very well, and in detail. Of particular interest was my desire to check out the local real estate and surrounding neighborhoods, and we got to do exactly that as part of the tour. It was great that Tim was in tune with the local real estate situation and was able to share his own thoughts and experiences on the subject, which I really appreciated!

I would definitely recommend Tim's tours! And, if there was anything else guests want to cover that isn't on his usual tour, I'm sure he would be accommodating enough to personalize the trip for you. Tim is very easy person to talk to and is a pleasure to get to know.....talk to him.

“Interesting, informative, educational, a must do tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

Tim's tour was so good! He is a natural tour guide and very courteous and kind to everyone in the group (even those from Portugal who didn't stop talking while everyone was trying to hear his info). The main object of the tour was La Jolla, but along the way we were informed about the history and natural environment of the whole area. A special treat was the visit to Torrey Pines Golf course which we had only seen on TV from afar (Australia). A unique tour.
Tim is so bursting with information, the tour isn't long enough to impart his knowledge.
Lunch in La Jolla at his recommended cafe was superb and the best meal we ate over our 8 day stay in San Diego. Thank you Tim. We hope your company keeps growing.
