What to Expect
Meet your guide in San Diego’s centrally located Gaslamp Quarter and practice scooting around on a self-balancing Segway before hitting the streets. Soak up the ambience of trendy restaurants and clubs housed in Victorian-era buildings as you travel, and then continue on to Chinatown and past Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. You guide helps to keep your energy up with provided snacks and makes sure you capture the memories with stops for photos along the way. Take in scenic harbor views as you roll along Navy Pier, Seaport Village, and past anchored ships like the Star of India and USS Midway. Head inland to Balboa Park, a beautifully landscaped cultural hub where you’ll see a handful of museums, plus working artists’ studios at Spanish Village. Smell the fragrant blooms at a botanic garden before scooting back to the starting point downtown.

Thanks for leaving us such a great review and for mentioning our amazing tour guide Preston. You’re right, he is s funny, knowledgeable and does some wicked good impressions of our US Presidents too! On top of that he is always smiling and loves his job too. I will be sure to pass on your thanks to him. Our entire team here at Another Side Tours is exhilarated to hear such good feedback, but we are not surprised. We know we are not the cheapest cheaper chicken option, but by providing the best service in town we justify our filet mignon price and we are so proud to be the best tour company in San Diego. Next time you’re here, you should try any of our other options as I am sure you will absolutely love them too. We hope to see you again soon, and bring your family and friends back with you. We cannot thank you enough for this awesome review. Safe travels and we look forward to hosing you on "another" fun adventure soon. All The Best, Kenneth CEO, Another Side Tours, Inc.
