Response from Cloud 9 Living
Is there any better way to spend a nice day than with tequila, tacos, and a tour? I don't think so! Thanks so much for letting us know about your five-star experience! Cheers, Jake.
“It was a very fun experience! We loved old town San Diego and enjoyed getting to try delicious foods!”
Response from Cloud 9 Living
Hi Serenity, That's fantastic! We love to hear from our customers, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your time out on your tour. I hope you made some great new memories in San Diego! Cheers, Inah
“We did not know what to expect, but Rochelle got the group engaged and the experience was awesome. Rochelle was knowledgeable about Old Town's history. She was extremely organized and in control of the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in some great food, drinks in a group setting. I had a great time!!”
“Great value. Guide was extremely helpful and had great historical knowledge of the area. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour. Great food and drinks as well.”
“Fun tour with great food and drinks!”
“Katie was our guide, and she was delightful. She had a cheerful disposition and was very knowledgeable about the Old Town area. At the second restaurant stop, I mentioned that I was a vegetarian (and she was too), so she asked our server for a vegetarian option for both of us. My fault that I hadn't mentioned this sooner :) Note to Cloud 9: if there is a more prominent way to note that someone in your group has special dietary needs in the initial booking process, it would be helpful.”
“Rochel, our tour guide did a fantastic job. I took my parents on the tour and they were very happy with the experience and interaction with the tour guide. Many thanks.”
