Thanksgiving in San Diego

November 27, 2024 thru November 30, 2024

La Jolla has the beauty of San Diego with scenic coastal views. This tour includes stops at iconic San Diego locations, such as the Maritime Museum, as well as a San Diego harbor cruise. One of the highlights of our trips is the Thanksgiving dinner buffet at the historic Del Coronado Hotel on Coronado Island.

While we have stayed at the Hotel del Coronado in previous years, the hotel is under construction and not suitable to stay. However, we will celebrate a special Thanksgiving brunch / dinner at the Del!

A San Diego hotel overlooking the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course and the majestic Pacific Ocean, Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines allows our hotels guests to feel a sense of seclusion while remaining close to all activities that San Diego’s seaside neighborhood of La Jolla has to offer.

The hotel is located amongst cliffs of the Torrey Pines State Reserve – a perfect La Jolla, CA hotel choice. Featuring a convenient location next to Scripps Hospital and Research Center, in between the villages of La Jolla and Del Mar. Swim laps in the heated outdoor pool. Keep fit in the fitness center or enjoy a game of tennis. Sign-up for professional golf lessons, or play a round. Dine on delicious steaks and fresh seafood at the on-site restaurant, Torreyana Grille. Enjoy spacious hotel rooms designed with the relaxed Southern California lifestyle in mind.

Level 2: Relaxed

This tour is designed for relaxed touring of San Diego and a hearty meal at Hotel Coronado


For your reference, we send to you a detailed itinerary approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the scheduled tour departure. This has day-by-day times and events, hotel information where you can be reached in case of an emergency, and airline information.

The times listed on the itinerary are all approximate. We cannot be held responsible for schedule changes due to unforeseen circumstances with the weather, transportation agents, highway conditions, hotels or contracting agents.


It is always a good idea to carry on your person a list of medications that you are taking and an emergency contact phone number while you are traveling. And we suggest making a copy of the itinerary and provide it to a friend or family member.


The traditional end-of-tour gratuity to your tour director is included on this tour. All hotel porterage and airport skycap (when available) fees are included. We also include the gratuities for the coach/livery drivers. Hotel housekeeping tips are not included.


For your convenience, we have a (round-tour) door-to-door pickup service with each multi-day tour. (This service is not available to all clients depending on your location.) Approximately 2 to 3 days prior to the departure date you will receive a call from our office and we will tell you your assigned pickup time. (These times can vary up to 15 minutes depending on traffic.)


If you would like to request special accommodations at the hotel(s) where we are lodging, please call us as soon as possible and we will forward these requests for you. The phone numbers of the hotel(s) where we are staying are listed on the itinerary.

Many hotels around the country have instituted a "reconditioning fee" of $300 or more that is levied upon a guest that smokes in a non-smoking room. If this occurs during our tour you will be responsible for paying this fee to the hotel prior to check-out.


We pay close attention to your requests but please realize that these are merely requests and cannot be guaranteed.
