Tours from Barnstorming Adventures tend to sell out - travelers recommend booking in advance!
Soar above the skies of San Diego in style as you enjoy a 20- to 60-minute aerial tour in a vintage 1920s-era biplane. Thanks to the biplane’s unique design, you (and up to one companion) ride up front, enjoying unobstructed views while your expert pilot handles the flying and navigation from the back seat.
