There is so much to see and do in San Diego, we decided to take a tour. The tour we chose gave us the option to stay on for the full tour, or get on and off as we chose. It was perfect for us because we have seen a lot of the city already, it gave us a great introduction to the places we have missed.

The tour started in Old Town San Diego and took us to about 30 places with 11 stops to get off and explore. We stayed on and enjoyed all the history about the city. The longer we are in San Diego, the more we see there is to do. :-)

We were really impressed with the Star of India Ship. It was launched in 1863 and has made 21 trips around the world. She is the oldest ship in the world that still maintains a regular sailing schedule. She has been greeting visitors on the San Diego waterfront for more than 75 years.

I took a bunch of pictures, but most were taken while on the bus, so please excuse the glares etc. After going to most of the areas on the tour, we got off in Little Italy to have lunch. We enjoyed the area much and plan to go back later. We learned a lot and it was well worth the $30. More later from San Diego.
