What people are saying about San Simeon

I had a great time on the trip. However I was told to meet at the library at 6:30 am, but the bus came at 8:30. I found someone who was told the same thing. We called her agency who confirmed 8:30. That is something that needs to be corrected in your itinerary.

Excellent service, the most iconic sites are visited, the staff is very friendly especially Brenda, our guide.

The tour was well organized and we saw a lot of great spots within a short period of time.

Jacob was very helpful as a tour guide and the hotel was excellent

It was a really good tour with a little bit of everything
