There are so many things to see in San Diego that I would have missed if it wasn't for Tyana! This tour should be the first thing to do when to get to San Diego.

I had 4 walking tours with different companies. All the tours I had were good, but this one was the best! Filip, the guide, is really passionate about the city and is very good in conveying it.
