At Where You Want To Be, we believe in sharing the Aloha Spirit. For us, there’s nothing better than creating unique group experiences that are uplifting, inspiring and downright FUN! From our one-of-a-kind “Secret San Diego Excursions” to our Charity/Give Back Opportunities and wildly creative Scavenger Hunts, the key ingredient is ALOHA
Why ALOHA? Although it’s commonly used as a simple greeting, it’s so much more. Aloha is the Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy. As a wise writer once said, “always be kind and compassionate to one another.” This is something we strive hard to incorporate into each of our adventures. It’s our hope that when you’re with us, you’ll experience the true meaning of Aloha and say to yourself “I’m exactly where I want to be!”

"Darlynne is the co-founder and co-owner of Where You Want to Be Tours and is a former co-worker from her time at KSWB TV. Darlynne may have the most engaging mix of integrity, drive, enthusiasm, dedication and commitment to teamwork I have ever seen in a single person. Her range of experience both in the workplace and as an entrepreneur is unique. But above all, Darlnne has a positive energy and a joyful perspective on people and life that is truly contageous and inspiring. With her husband they have built a business based on vision, hard work and a passion that literally began as a walk in the park. I can think of no greater professional achievement than to turn a dream into a reality. Take a tour with Where You Want to Be Tours and you will see San Diego in a new way, spend time bonding with friends or co-workers and best of all you will meet Darlynne and Marc who will make you smile, take good care of you and show you a whole new way to see the world! Like they say, it is where you want to be!"KSWB TV

"Marc and Darlynne Menkin started Where You Want to Be Tours several years ago, and their business has just blossomed! I've used them on many occasions, to take clients and colleagues on tours and scavenger hunts. They know San Diego inside out, and love sharing their secret spots, whether on foot or on a double decker bus. They drop the K and keep the F....U....N!"McLANE RIEGER COMMUNICATIONS
"Thank you so much. People were still talking at dinner tonight. The tour was great! You were wonderful with the insights and fun jokes. One of the people commented that they had never had such a fun activity on a trip. That made my day. You and Darlynne have been so responsive and accomodating, from the chips and water to the day by day count change. I truly appreciate your attention to detail and your professionalism. There were so many reasons for the great time. We were able to get some air, enjoy some music, get some good info on the area and enjoy a wonderful ride in a spectacular area. Plus, we had some slow peaceful times to really chat with each other. It was a great diversion from the morning meetings. What a wonderful day!"FRITO LAY
