I’ve taken several of these tours and I was so glad to see that they also had one of the bluffs. The views were incredible. The information was interesting. Definitely check out this tour if you are in the area.


It was a first time using the app for a tour. The download and play was simple and greatly added to our trip. I can't imagine going on another trip without this. Well done!


My. Soledad was very pretty. Many beautiful views. The directions were difficult to follow and one of the streets was closed so had to bypass it.


My favorites were the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and La Jolla Cove. The Torrey Pines walking trails and the views are amazing. I could spend all day at La Jolla Cove watching the Seals on the rocks and the local fare was excellent. My most favorite was following the guided app and knowing what to look for upcoming during the drive.


This driving tour took me through the most picturesque locations between the Del Mar and Point Loma areas of San Diego, including Torrey Pines, Mount Soledad and Sunset Cliffs. Also included were stops in some great shopping/restaurant districts like La Jolla Village, Bird Rock, Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach. Loved the insights in the descriptions of each stop. Highly recommended!


The DriversandDetours app was wonderful and easy to use. Gave us a nice tour of LaJolla, Torres Pines National park and other areas. We could pause and restart the tour whenever we wanted.
