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!

Having a private tour with Julie was one of the best experiences we have ever had! Prior to the day of the tour, she called me to understand my family's specific needs. From the moment we met her, we knew we were going to have a memorable experience. Not only is Julie extremely knowledgeable about San Diego, but she also ensured that everyone had fun and got their questions answered. And... we got GREAT pictures since she acted as our personal photographer. I would HIGHLY recommend taking a tour with Julie. She is now an honorary member of our family, and I know we will tour with her again!

Tremendous way to kick off a vacation to San Diego. We are two-time return visitors and were surprised at just how much we didn’t know. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect guide than Julie. She is immensely authentic, personable, and a student of the area’s rich history. Don’t expect a rigid tour agenda. Julie is a great people person and naturally inquisitive. With our permission, she adapted the tour in real time as she learned more about our background and interests. This made every site, community, and the stories about them jump out, more relevant, and even more memorable. Julie gets an A+++! We look forward to booking with her again when the time comes!

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

We recently visited San Diego for the first time. We hired Julie for a private tour on our first full day in the city. We were not disappointed! Before our arrival, Julie called to discuss the details of our tour and got a feel for what we might be interested in seeing. She planned a custom tour designed specifically for our family. We were able to see many parts of the city, landmarks, and beautiful scenic locations all in a day. Julie was extremely knowledgeable about the city and it's history. She took us to many well-known locations as well as some out of the way places we would have never known about! If you are looking for a custom tour of San Diego definitely hire Julie!

Shana- I am so thrilled that you had a great time on our 8 hour whirlwind tour of Balboa Park, downtown, old town, Secret Canyon attraction, the wonderful viewpoint and La Jolla. I'm thrilled that I was able to make our history, culture, and all the sites interesting to everyone in your multigenerational group. Thanks for the review! ~ Julie
