On this fascinating in-depth **Private Full Day San Diego Highlights** tour, you will discover much about California’s second-largest city, from its ‘discovery’ by Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1542, to the indigenous Kumeyaay peoples who occupied the area 12,000 years prior to European arrival. Learn about the settlement of San Dieguito, and the cultural, socio-political and historical developments that powered it to a city of a population of 1.4 million. With a deeply embedded Mexican heritage, the legacy of San Diego’s place in the Mexican Empire from 1821 is a fascinating story. An Italian community, established in Waterfront Park in the early 19th century, has also shaped the culture of the city. See for yourself why San Diego - or Sandie as the locals call it - is dubbed America’s Finest City.

On the San Diego Private Half Day Highlights tour, you will visit several of the city’s major historical sites, quaint neighborhoods and parks, and **Coronado Island** - a picturesque peninsula blessed by gorgeous beaches, tidal pools and coves. Soak up the buzz of the **Gaslamp Quarter,** the architecture of **Old Town**, and **Balboa Park**.
