This is a “not to miss” experience in Coronado. Peter makes the journey easy, with insightful thoughts at each art stop. He really knows Coronado in a unique way and is quick and happy to share with his guests.

The tour of Coronado with Peter was one of the highlights of our time in San Diego. Peter is THE person to do this tour with, as for many years he has been in charge of public art in Coronado! He really cared about all the pieces of art we saw during our 2-hour tour, took enough time to give us background about the different installations, and was genuinely interested in making us understand where we were and what we were doing. All the references to the history of the place (mostly around the famous Hotel del Coronado) were also on point. In addition to that, I want to emphasize that I mixed up things and did not show up on time for our tour - Peter was very understanding and gentle about the whole thing! We try to take a bike tour everywhere we go, as it is a very direct way to experience the city / town we're in, and I am very happy we had Peter to take us around and showing us Coronado. 100% recommended.

What a great tour! We had spent 6 weeks living on Coronado several years ago, so we knew a little bit about it. But through Peter's tour, we saw some new and fascinating things. Since he worked on getting all these public art pieces in place, he really knows about them -- where they came from, about the artist who created them and even interesting stories about the process of getting public art into place. We used bright blue (and brand new!) bikes from Holland Bikes where Peter has a great deal arranged. These had comfy seats, were very easy to pedal and just the perfect bike for this two hour tour. It was a slightly cloudy and breezy day - wearing layers is a good way to be comfortable. Peter guided our group of 4 to keep us safely together. We stopped every so often to see the artwork and hear details about it. Neither of us are champion bikers, but we did just fine on these beach cruisers. It's a great way to get around Coronado, plenty of bike paths, you see some of the beautiful neighborhoods, the Hotel Del, the waterfront. Really helps you get a sense of Coronado. This is a "don't miss it" experience, in my opinion!

Our experience today on Peters tour was fantastic. Peter and his wife greeted us so warmly that we felt like we were with friends immediately. He was so informative and pointed out some great things about Coronado that we may never have noticed. We had a comfortable pace and the route that he took us showed such a variety of places that we really felt like we got a good sense of the city. We definitely plan to send friends and family that visit to go on tour with Peter. He has such a depth of knowledge about Coronado but also the most welcoming and friendly disposition that it made for a great tour! Highly recommend!

Get a little exercise as you cruise around Coronado with Peter. You will learn about the artists who created the city's public art and get little history lesson to boot.

What a great way to see Coronado Island! Peter is an excellent tour guide, really friendly and knowledgable. It was such a different way to see a new place as a tourist, with a guide who had complete in depth knowledge and experience of the art installations and of the Island. Peter really explains the meaning behind the artworks and I got a lot more out of it than if I had just walked past the art piece, if I had been lucky enough to do so. In fact my friends had visited the island the day before me and had not even seen any of the public art! This is a really great tour, the bike rental was cheap and really easy to find. Cruising about in lovely weather looking at art with a great tour guide, what more could you want?
