Jay was an amazing tour guide for our trolley trip. Jay talked about the history, both current and past, the hot spots to go and for what reasons and even discussed the architecture. We had only one day in SB and this tour helped us take a lot away. Thank you Jay!

We had an excellent driver/tour guide. Interesting and humor. He is very knowledgeable and made the whole 90 minutes tour too short.

Jay was an amazing tour guide. He was so welcoming and told us so many interesting stories about the places we saw on our trip while being so extremely likable and funny. My wife and I did a walking-only trip throughout SB that weekend and his tour made us feel like we really knew our way around town!
