    What to Expect
    Meet for your 1.5-hour night tour of San Diego at 470 Kettner Boulevard in the city’s Seaport Village. Make sure to arrive 30 minutes before your departure time. There are four times offered for this tour, including 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m, 8 p.m., and 8:30 p.m.

    Once you meet your guide and group for the evening, set out through the Gaslamp Quarter. This area is well known for its nightlife and Victorian architecture. Your first stop is at Balboa Park, which is one of the largest urban parks in the US. Its statues, fountains, and buildings are lit up at night and look even more spectacular at night than during the day.

    Next up, your guide drives you up to the Coronado Bridge and over to the Coronado Ferry Landing. Stop at the there for about 20 minutes, and take in stunning views of the city lights.

    Your last part of this tour happens at the Embarcadero. See the San Diego County Administration Center, the USS Midway Museum, the Star of India, and Navy aircraft carriers.

    Your tour ends back at your original meeting point. If you’re in the mood for wine, you can ask your guide for directions to the nearest Hyatt Hotel, where you can enjoy 50% off wine at the bar (some restrictions apply).

    Loved the city lights, but the tour is just a bus ride with a little narration. Next times I’ll drive around in my rental car

    San Diego is such a colourful city and this night tour brings those colours to life. There are many gems to see on this tour and the coach driver had his own imitable style.
