We found Julie online and from the moment of contact she was engaging and all about giving us the best experience possible. Excellent communication both before the tour in preparation and after in her follow-up when we got home. She has a mind-boggling amount of information about San Diego and its history which she shares enthusiastically. Julie is warm, personable and she cares to make your experience a great one. She loves San Diego, loves her job and it shows! Whatever you want to do, see or discover in San Diego, Julie will deliver. We had a wonderful time. We would not hesitate to hire Julie again and most definitely give her 5 stars.

C- I'm so glad that I was able to show you a lot of variety, and I'm pleased that you liked all of the locations I brought you to including the wonderful art park, the magical beach, the secret hidden canyon surprise and the adventurous natural wonder. Thanks so much for your heartfelt review and I hope we can do a part 2 on your next visit. ~ Julie

Julie put together a private 8 hour San Diego highlights tour for us and it was awesome. We had six couples, so she arranged an executive mini coach bus to make it comfortable for us and easy to get on and off the bus. She has a wealth of knowledge which she enthusiastically shares on the journey around the city. The tour was custom built for us, allowing us to spend time visiting those areas that were priorities for our group. Julis was very engaging with everyone in the group and took time to make sure our questions were answered. Book with Julie, you will be glad you did.

We did a private tour with Julie, and she was a consummate professional who brought the experience, knowledge, and energy that made the tour a standout experience for my and my boyfriend's first time in San Diego. Her passion and dedication to her clients is exceptional. She spent 30 minutes on the phone with me before I booked the tour to get a full appreciation for what we were looking for. She then did research about murals/social art on her own time (online as well as to physically see the murals she'd take us to) to make sure that she could cater to our specific request. It's clear that Julie takes pride in her company and her ability to give her clients a memorable experience.

Chi- I loved your enthusiasm for all the things I showed you, including all the hidden murals, architecture and sculpture and I’m pleased that you really liked some of the spontaneous unscheduled and secret hidden spots I showed you – including the beautiful hidden coastal trail, viewpoint, and memorial. Thank you so much for your review. Hope to catch you next time around! ~ Julie

Julie has gone above and beyond our expectations. This was the best tour we have ever experienced. She gave us a lot of useful tips before and after the tour and was helpful and responsive which saved us a lot of time for planning our visit. Julie is extremely knowledgeable guide. She gave us a tailored experience based on our interests and made the journey fun and informative. We not only learned a lot about the city but also were taken to places which are hidden gems. We highly recommend Julie to anyone who wants to get a flavor of San Diego in a short period of time.

My family and I hired Julie to give us the grand tour during our first visit to beautiful San Diego. We were impressed immediately even before we met her because she took the time to craft the perfect tour based on our interests. My family is three generations and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. There was something for everyone. Julie's attention to detail didn't end when the tour was over because she also sent us a wonderful follow up email with all kinds of goodies in there including links to videos of the places we visited and further information expanding on some of the history. Please don't hesitate to hire Julie - she will make you fall in love with San Diego, like we all did!

J - It was such a pleasure to take your family around -- I'm so happy that I was able to please everybody. We certainly packed in a lot of variety and many different locations during your 6 hour tour. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed the history so much and that I was able to teach everyone a lot about San Diego's interesting past and present culture. Thank you so much for your review. ~ Julie

My family visited San Diego last month and contacted Julie to arrange a private walking tour. Julie responded promptly and informed us she was unavailable on our chosen day but kindly found another guide for us, Suzanne.

Communication with Suzanne was incredible. We spoke over the phone prior to the tour and planned everything out. She provided numerous tips to help us make the most of our time in the city. On the day of the tour, Suzanne arrived on time and was an excellent guide. She was patient with our 4-year-old son and took the time to explain important areas of the city. We covered a lot of ground, and it felt like touring San Diego with a friend.

Thank you, Suzanne, for the amazing tour, and thank you, Julie, for setting it up.

Excellent Private USD and UCSD Tour
Julie put together a comprehensive and thoughtful tour of both UCSD and USD as well as all the surrounding areas. She gave us a great idea of what a prospective student could expect living in San Diego. Excellent.

M-C: It was my true pleasure to show you around. I am thrilled that I could give you a feel for how San Diego is, given that your son might be going to college here. I'm glad he liked the universities I showed you, and the surrounding areas including our wonderful coastal areas. I will see you on the next trip for sure!

My wife and I spent five hours with Julie as she enthusiastically traversed us through the city. This tour was not Julie's tour, it was our tour. Julie spent time on the front end of our tour getting to know us and what our interests are. Then she planned an amazing tour throughout the city. Julie's knowledge of San Diego is incredible her bubbly personality makes you feel like your her family from the moment you start the tour. I cannot say enough about our time with Julie in San Diego. If your looking for a personal, informative and well planned tour Julie will deliver.

Julie is wonderful. Spent a great day touring the area. Her knowledge is vast, and her enthusiasm is boundless. We both greatly enjoyed spending the time with her and would happily do another tour with her the next time we are here.

This is our second time booking Julie for a private tour. She was just as amazing and wonderful as the last time. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable on every aspect of San Diego and surrounding areas. This tour we did Old Town, La Jolla and a fabulous lunch overlooking the bay. She showed us every aspect of Old Town and La Jolla/Coast Trail and a Sea Cave.

If you need a private tour then Julie is the only answer!

Christian- it was just as delightful the second time around to show your family some new sites in San Diego. I'm always happy when I can show a semi-local some new things they don't know about and share with you our fascinating history. Thank you so much for your review and I hope to catch you next time around ~ Julie
