Our guide, Jennifer, was delightful and extremely knowledgeable. We learned the fascinating history of this magnificent park, as we soaked in the beauty of the architecture and landscaping. Following the tour we remained in the park and visited the Japanese Tea Garden, which was lovely.

Thanks for such a nice review! You were in a super fun group and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time both on the tour and then afterwards in the park. It definitely takes more than 2 hours to see it, but the tour helps you focus on what to explore next. Thanks again for joining and I look forward to your next visit!

Jennifer was a wealth of knowledge in the history of Balboa Park. As east coasters is was interesting to see the “Smithsonian of the west.” We enjoyed getting to learn more about San Diego with this tour.

We learned so much! And the smoothies were delish!

We learned a lot on this walking tour. It was very laid back and a nice stroll through the park. Our guide Jennifer was super knowledgeable and pointed out things we may have missed if we were just wandering through on our own. It was worth taking the tour! The drinks were an extra bonus. It wasn't just coffee. You can get delicious smoothies as well. Jennifer also recommended a great restaurant and helped us find the best place to catch an uber at the end of the tour. It was a great day in the park!

Thank you for such nice feedback and for bringing such a fun group (I loved their trust in your plans!). I'm so glad you all had a great time, and I'm delighted you made it to the restaurant we use on our Old Town tour. It really was a lovely morning and I hope we can repeat it sometime soon! Thanks again!

Our tour with Jennifer was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. She was a wealth of knowledge on the history of Balboa park, and pointed out things we wouldn't have otherwise noticed or known about. What a great jumping off point for planning future visits to Balboa as well!
