About the tour

Everything you love about my Sunset Tour, but earlier and more in depth! Explore Pacific Beach paradise through the eyes of locals right from the edge of the water. Always a new site to see on each of these tours - from wildlife to ocean sports to people on the boardwalk and on the beach!

Meet your local guide


Known as the “Birthplace of California”, San Diego is a true gem of the Pacific. Emily wants to show you all of the beauty through a unique lens. From unobstructed beaches and ocean views, to a rich maritime history and a fusion of culture and cuisine. Her tours will give you the real perspective of a local surfer, food and wine lover, and outdoor adventurer. Emily’s overwhelming love for the southern beach city has fueled a passion for discovering all of the hidden treasures of the large county. She loves the opportunity that virtual tours create, including uncovering new places and scenery, as well as the connection between different cultures and people. She can’t wait to show you around paradise!

Emily has been guiding since Mar 2021

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to San Diego with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from San Diego. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Rather a long time just looking at surfers, although I do love watching the waves. Could have gone for a bit more of a walk and description of the town. The pier cottages and Kono's for instance, were very interesting.
