DayTripper Tours was founded in 1987 by then-tour bus driver Myron Stam under the name Hollywood Connection. It began as a one-person, home-based startup operation offering occasional one-day excursions to the Price is Right TV Show and other Hollywood game show tapings.
In 1989 the company name was changed to DayTripper Tours and its operations were expanded to include a myriad of other destinations throughout the Southwest and Mexico in response to increased demand for more tours. In 1994 the company opened a small office and hired its first employee. It subsequently relocated again in 1996, 1999 and 2004 into larger office space to accommodate the demand for more employees. In 2011 the company was incorporated under the parent company Daycation Getaways, Inc., and that same year moved its headquarters to the present location at 624 El Cajon Blvd., El Cajon, CA. The half-acre property provides both short and long term passenger parking as well as a 5,600 square-foot building that includes a passenger waiting lounge area and a small cafe for refreshments. The company currently employs 12 independent Tour Directors and 14 full and part-time office staff members including Stam, who serves as president and CEO.
DayTripper Tours has grown to become the largest tour operator of its kind in San Diego County and each year offers hundreds of day trips and multiple-day excursions outbound from San Diego to destinations throughout California, the Southwest, and beyond.
DayTripper Tours is proud to be affiliated with the National Tour Association as well as the San Diego Better Business Bureau. These internationally recognized organizations limit their memberships to businesses that represent the highest in ethical and quality standards.
