I was disappointed in Old Town San Diego. I had visited 15 years ago, and discovered upon this visit that it had become quite touristy.

Great tour to go on to see the best of SAN Diego. Lots of stops to get off and on all day long. Interesting drivers with loads of local knowledge to keep you informed and amused. Fabulous tour.

Fun place to visit. Lots of interesting shopping, restaurants and bars. Indoor and Outdoor seating available for meals. It's like stepping back in time. The area really has the feeling of Mexico. Old buildings and a museum to visit.

We loved Old Town. It was very unique. There are lots of little shops to purchase souvenirs and many places to learn about the history of San Diego. I definitely recommend eating at Casa De Reyes while you are there.

Old Town San Diego was very educational with its’ many museums, authentic buildings and sights. We did not get to see all of Old Town but several of the numerous restaurants and shops were visited. Parking was easy and free. Hope to visit again.

Must see with many restaurants with good Mexican food. Focal point for tours going to the Midway, Balboa Park and others. Many hotels where you can easily get transportation downtown.
