    Start your tour with a trip through historic Little Italy. Once home to the city’s Italian community, the neighborhood has now become a modern business and arts district. Make your way to the bay and see ships that explored the new world, and patrolled the waters in time of war. Then cruise down the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter which was once San Diego’s red-light district, but is now the center of the city’s nightlife.  Leave modern San Diego and take a trip through the past as you check out the beautiful Mission Hills and the historic Fort Stockton. Visit Presidio Park where see the old Spanish mission used to stand. Ride through Old town San Diego and see how the city looked in the era of the old west when its Spanish and American residents were just laying the foundation for a thriving community.

    This was the most fun my husband and I have ever had exploring a city. Since COVID I wanted to find safe things for us to do together when traveling. This was top of my list and we had a blast. People all around were stopping and asking us questions about what we were doing and how cool it was. I would give this 10 stars if I could. It's a must if you're traveling to San Diego and an exciting way to see and learn about the city. I highly recommend it and you can't beat the price.
