Michael D.

San Diego, CA, United States

I care about my client's enjoyment. I strive to show as much as I can in the time allotted.

I am very knowledgeable about the San Diego area. I am passionate about enhancing my client's experience by being the best tour guide in San Diego! I am loose on time so if you have time, and feel like it, I can go over the time allotted a bit.

I was the President and Founder of the Professional Taxi Drivers Association in San Diego, an attempt to provide access to low cost benefits to drivers with the pledge to provide excellent service.

I was one of the top Uber drivers with thousands of five star reviews and hundreds of comments on my wonderful service.

My specialty is making clients into friends!

A Recent Review of this guide

Michael is a gentle soul and a very special person in addition to the fact that he is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about San Diego and the surrounding areas. He tailored our tours (we did 2 of them with him on 2 separate days) to the specific things that we wanted to see as well as the needs of my family. He accommodated every request and had such a positive attitude and was truly such a joy. We are so glad that we met him and will always remember his kindness and the memories that he gave us.

Credentials

I drove a taxi in San Diego for 15 years. I was the founding President of the Professional Taxi Drivers Association. I was a top Uber driver for four years. I drove a tour bus for a large local tour company.

Restrictions

I am a disabled veteran with leg damage. I can walk a bit but not long distances. This should not cause any issues with my tours since they are mostly sightseeing from the car. Walking is minimal.
