More Information


Many people do not realize San Diego has colorful, hidden canyons just minutes from downtown. On this guided tour you will experience two spectacular footbridges overlooking pristine canyons with wildflowers, cactus, palms and bamboo forests. Visit quiet streets filled with historic homes and amazing architecture. And best of all you’ll discover the hidden secrets of the crown jewel of San Diego: Balboa Park.

This approximately 2-hour tour covers 2-3 miles of total walking distance at a comfortable pace, and promises no steep hills. It starts on the outskirts of Balboa Park. At the end of the tour, you’ll be led inside the park, where you can enjoy its museums, restaurants and world-class zoo at your own pace. Bring your camera and spirit of adventure, and your tour guide will provide the fun and camaraderie – as well as snacks, giveaways and surprises.
