Private Full-Day Tour of the San Diego Coast
From US$795.00
Low Price Guarantee
Soak up San Diego's famous beach culture on this private, full-day tour. Drive along the north county coast with a personal guide, stopping at famous surf spots and sandy stretches of Ocean Beach, Encinitas, Del Mar, and La Jolla. It's a great way to squeeze the best of the San Diego coast into one day, and you can relax and enjoy the coastal views while a driver handles the road.
What to Expect
After pickup at your San Diego hotel, head north to Point Loma and the Cabrillo National Monument for amazing cliff top views.
Get a sea-level perspective at Sunset Cliff Park, check out the relaxed, off-beat vibe of Ocean Beach, and stroll past funky shops and dreamy vacation homes along the Pacific Beach boardwalk and Mission Bay.
Hit the road again and take advantage of your driver’s expertise to beat the traffic en route to Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, where you can watch beach volleyball and grab lunch at one of many restaurants (own expense).
Visit the meditation gardens and watch surfers at Swamis, stroll through the upscale Victoria town of Del Mar, and see parasailers launching from the cliffs at Torrey Pines.
Your guide saves the best for last, wrapping up with a stop at the famous La Jolla sea caves before dropping you back at your hotel.

Truly a "FULL" day tour, amazing sites for all interests and on a holiday weekend!

We had a total of four on our tour. I don't foresee any problems if you were by yourself as the tour guide is very helpful and he watches out for everybody. It is an enjoyable tour.
