San Diego was the city which was missing on my vacation list. Thanks to great managements of tour agencies we took the bus from Los Angles offered us a quite a reasonable package. I booked this one day tour to San Diego online; quite facilitating. The theme water park there was the best stop on this tour. We could have done quite much of city exploration in one day, though. But that’s the best we could get in hundred bucks.
The Sea World and the cruise, both are worth watching and this tour for 1 day offers the world’s most beautiful places to visit. We must agree that the tour was rightly organized and communicated. I have no complaints with the tour or the arrangements, but i am disappointed that we were not informed about the timing. The timing mentioned in the website and the email was different. Though we tried to confirm, there was some confusion and so we had to wait for the bus to arrive starting early. They cannot make passengers wait and trouble us for booking with them.
I have had heard quite much about San Diego Sea World, as indeed many people that I know reviewed it as the must-visit theme park while in San Diego. Upon all that recommendation and good reviews, I decide to discover it on this exciting bus tour initiating from Los Angeles. The amazing thing about this tour is that it not only let us visit the SeaWorld Theme Park but also we get to discover the core spirit of the city at San Diego Pier, Bay Area, and that boat cruise there was stunning. Amazing experience!
The bus tour was good, but owing to heavy road traffic and the weekends, we could not reach on time to San Diego and so matching with the dolphin show timings were difficult. The guide informed us and he also assured he will try to make arrangements, but most of us in the bus were sure we missed the show. Luckily, our guide was a real smart person; he made arrangements in the Sea world for us to see the dolphin show. Luckily, we did not miss, but it is better to reach early. I give 4 stars as we had to undergo anxiety pressure.
I had heard and seen on TV dolphins and this was the first time i was seeing the dolphin show and believe me it was the best. God, I am unable to think of more impressive words, but it was out of the world for me. Taking this tour was the right decision as they arranged good transportation and we made it to the SeaWorld to see the dolphin show. This tour from Los Angeles to the San Diego city and the Sea World was one of the best one day tours and i am glad to be on this tour.
I was on this tour and the tour guide was good and helpful. He was informative and appeared to be learned. Before the tour reaching to a place, he gave information required and also mentioned the background. The down part was the San Diego to LA drive in the night that was strenuous and long drive. Actually, i was scared we should reach safe. The tour was good worth the money. The San Diego Sea World was great. I recommend this as i enjoyed the Sea World. The San Diego bay offered a nice view, Then at SeaWorld we spent a great time
The San Diego city was amazing. I surely will recommend this tour to everyone i know. I had a lovely time and tons of fun in the SeaWorld. I have to agree that we need to take a break from the regular work and work upon some such tours or life becomes boring. At last, one of my friends threw some real light and compelled me to this tour, that today i am short of words to thank him for making me feel so light. Yes, i will say everyone wishing the US, must take to visiting Sea World with this tour.
