What to expect

This tour is for anybody who wants to see how San Diego has evolved from its western roots into the modern international vacation spot that it is today. You’ll start in historic Little Italy and make your way past the ships in the bay to the Gaslamp Quarter, once San Diego’s red-light district, and see how it became re-imagined into the social scene it is today.

As you leave modern San Diego you will begin your trip into history through beautiful Mission Hills and the historic Fort Stockton. You’ll see Presidio Park, home of the old Spanish Mission and Old Town San Diego, born of massive Spanish influence in Southern California.
