    A very fun glimpse of La Jolla
    Nancy_H, May 2023
    La Jolla walking tour was an excellent way to see the beautiful seascape of la Jolla. Kris is a well informed tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
    Highly recommend the La Jolla Coast Walking Tour with Chris!
    Barry_P, Apr 2023
    Chris was a wonderful tour guide! Even though my husband and I were the only two to sign up for this tour, he did not cancel, and provided us with a private tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We were so impressed with all that he showed and explained to us. There was so much we would have missed had we not been on this tour. We highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed! .
    Fun tour in La Jolla
    Beth_W, Apr 2023
    We really had an enjoyable tour with Kris in La Jolla. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the area, flora and fauna, art, and San Diego history. He had several recommendations for other fun things to do and places to eat. He was also extremely accommodating as we were stuck in road construction and were late for our tour. We really enjoyed our time. Would definitely recommend to others to get a good overview of La Jolla.

    Kris was such a wonderful tour guide! We went on the La Jolla Walking Tour and had such a good time. On this tour you'll learn about the history of the area, recommendations for activities, see some awesome wildlife (probably), and just have really great conversation. This was the perfect way to get to know the area and I would recommend it for everyone!

    Enjoyable, Personable, and Informative Walking Tour!
    Emily_D, Aug 2022
    Kris did a great job showing me around La Jolla. He has info on trees, history, animals, sea life, and his enthusiasm for where he lives shines right through. Great intro to La Jolla and I recommend him to anyone. He can tailor each tour to the audience in front of him.
