Au programme

Often referred to as the cultural jewel of San Diego, Balboa Park is one of the more popular places for visitors to explore, but many rush from one thing to the next. We're going to slow down and dive deep into the nooks and crannies of the park, discovering architectural details, delightful gardens, and cultural treasures most guests pass by. There's an Instagram-able spot around every corner!

We'll start at the western end of the park and cross Cabrillo Bridge, entering the park as VIPs did at the beginning of the Panama-California Exposition. We'll zigzag our way along the Prado, the heart of the central mesa, taking in the shear beauty of the place. Specifically we'll:
-Learn about the early 20th-century expositions that shaped Balboa Park
-Find the best spots to photograph Balboa Park’s beautiful Spanish colonial revival architecture
- Discover how the park was formed 150 years ago, and how city leaders have used it to promote San Diego ever since
- See where the Navy marched and nudists lounged in the early 20th century
- Explore plant and tree filled gardens and a sculpture courtyard hiding in plain sight
- Enjoy a beverage at a locally owned and operated coffee cart
Other things to note
This is a walking tour - we'll cover less than 2 miles but will be on our feet most of the time. Tour ends 10 minutes away from where it begins.

I’m a native to San Diego and a professional tour guide here since 2002. I've led different types of tours but my favorite - walking tours - led me to own & operate San Diego Urban Adventures from 2017-2021 and launch San Diego Walks in March of 2021.

I'm a passionate local who loves to show off our beautiful city while meeting people from all over the world – that’s you! I know the city in a way guide books don't, and want you to see Balboa Park through my eyes. Have a question about the park, or the city, or recommend our favorite craft beer or taco shop? Join me!

Jenn knows everything about the history of San Diego and Balboa park. So knowledgeable and thorough. I got to walk around the park knowing where the good stuff is and also why it’s there. Very fun!

Jenn is the kind of guide I appreciate most -- friendly, fun, and knowledgable while not being overbearing at all. She was great at reading the group's interest level in the areas she showed us and adjusted the tour timing accordingly. A very relaxed, enjoyable, and educative experience!

After numerous trips to San Diego( love it here) I took the time to tour this famous park. I literally only knew it was big and had cool neighborhoods surrounding it. Jenn was so personable and conveyed the history and points of interest in an easy nicely paced manor. Being a California native I found the history and influence of the Spanish and the architecture really interesting. Jenn was full of recommendations for other areas to check out. I’ll look forward to another tour with Jenn upon my next visit in July.

This tour familiarizes you with an important San Diego amenity: Balboa Park. Jenn did a great job of showing us around with interesting details along the way. Due to covid the museums were all closed but we had a great time anyway.

Our tour of Balboa park couldn't have gone any better than the experience provided by Jennifer. Her wonderfully curated tour with a lovely combination of historical context, chronology, anecdotes and connective webbing of information made for a day full of storytelling and quite honestly put us in a state of childlike wonder. If you're a curious person who enjoys venturing back in time, this is definitely the tour for you. We'll be bringing our family next time we make our back to San Diego!
