I was awaiting this tour for a long time. I booked my tickets the day the counter for this tour was opened. I wanted to visit San Diego as it was my aunt’s birth place. Though she is no more, she spoke so much about this city that it tempted me to visit this amazing place. This city has remarkable places to visit and is enthralling. The places my aunt referred included the luxurious hotel and I was happy to visit places she mentioned. It was like I was with her in her city and was visiting places of attraction.
The tour was definitely very good, but I felt more time must be given to see such places of high importance. It was for me like one glance show and it was gone that we were to see something new and interesting and it was gone. I wish to capture each thing for a minute and to store it in my camera. This was a one day tour and they did cover all the places mentioned in the schedule, but giving one more day, would have been perfect. It was a rush to see the places that now itself some places we visited do not come to mind.
I and my sister took this tour for one day as she wanted to understand if she was passionate about science or not. Fortunately, she got her answer and she was very much interested after seeing these many places. The bus guide was good and so was the driver who drove with expertise and took to all the places within the schedule time. He manoeuvred the traffic with ease, but the guide would have been better if he spoke good English. He did his best to explain everything, but his English was really poor. Better luck next time for sure!
It was an informative tour for me and my friends. We were very eager to see the Science Center; we strolled around its compartments and explore a lot about nature and cosmos.
I joined the tour especially for California Science Center; it just made my day wandering around so close to the space shuttles and knowing about the expeditions.
I joined the tour with my classmates and it was fun. The scene of the Los Angeles Memorial Stadium was breathtaking; we just imagined how enormous it would be to host the couple of summer Olympics back to back.
I love science details, projects and anything relating to science. I am not a science student, but love these amazing things that are beautifully stunning. It takes one out of the world and this tour for one day did that magic of taking me to a different world that it was difficult for me to come back even after I came home from the tour. The places we visited during this tour were really unforgettable. It is impossible to see so many places but for this tour schedule. They alone can arrange it and so I recommend others to go through this tour.
The Sky space and California science center, both are memorable places. It is a great pleasure to be a part of this tour for one day. The places have so many things to see that after visiting, there is a longing to visit again and I will do that. Now that I know there are so many things in this one day tour, I will not miss this opportunity. Everything is as per the tour schedule and they have taken to all the places specified and I am very happy about that. They keep to their word, a happy tour!
The tour was precise and informative. Me and my colleagues were very enthusiastic for the skyride and later on the visit to the Campus and Science center were amazing.
I always like one day tours because these are not hectic; no tiring travelling and overnight stays. Moreover, I like informative tours and this one was perfect for me.
