Join us as we visit three spectacular gems along the beautiful northern San Diego coast. We begin at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), a vast and vibrant world of gems and jewelry. Established in 1931, the GIA is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls and the leading source of knowledge, standards, and education in gems and jewelry. A docent-guided tour of GIA’s high-security headquarters will feature the GIA Museum which showcases the science and beauty of gems and minerals, along with expertly designed and crafted jewelry. Then, enjoy an included taco bar buffet with dessert at an award-winning restaurant serving authentic mouth-watering San Diego-style Mexican cuisine. Their handmade tortillas, fresh salsas and colorful crispy chips made daily in the kitchen, as well as the famous jalapeno white sauce will make this a memorable meal. This afternoon we’ll visit the Museum of Making Music where we’ll travel through time, from 1900 to today, exploring the connections among people, instruments, and the music we make…and make some music of our own! On a docent-guided tour we’ll see almost 500 vintage instruments that showcase innovative change over time and hear samples of popular music spanning over the last century. Required: when booking, provide legal name as it appears on your driver’s license or other government-issued identification that you will be presenting to GIA on the day of the tour.
