About San Diego Private Tours - Journeys with Julie
Explore San Diego with Private Tour Guide Julie on a private and customized journey through this fine city. I will design a tour to suit your interests-whether an in-depth tour in one specific area, or multiple stops all over San Diego-land. I can guide you through the must-see sightseeing spots or I can show you San Diego's "hidden" gems that most tours overlook- or we can do both!
