Hello, that you for your review. I understand it has been awhile, but I will be traveling to San Diego and would like to visit LA, due to the travel time from San Diego to LA, we thought we should do the afternoon tour offered by Guideline Tours, I understand that is the tour you did. Can you please share with me a little bit more about it, where you went, what you saw, etc. details of the tour would be appreciated. Thank you
