Why We Are NCTD
The North San Diego County Transit Development Board (NSDCTDB) was created by California Senate Bill 802 on September 20, 1975. The board was created to plan, construct and operate – directly or through a contractor – public transit systems in its area of jurisdiction.
On January 1, 2003, a new state law was enacted (SB 1703) that transferred future transit planning, programming, development and construction to SANDAG, San Diego’s regional planning agency. NSDCTDB continued to operate the BREEZE, COASTER and SPRINTER.
On August 30, 2005, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed AB 1238, which renamed the District the North County Transit District (NCTD), with the name change becoming effective January 1, 2006.
We want to show you this big, beautiful world in a whole new way. One that puts you in control and gives you access to our little black book of incredible properties, people and experiences. We believe that each trip should be as special and unique as you are. It should be magical and inspirational with plenty of 'wow' factor, which is why we design each itinerary around you. Stay in the finest accommodations, meet the locals, sip the wine, learn something new, and enjoy authentic, personal experiences that you’ll cherish forever. Welcome to Scott Dunn.
Our travel experts are the best in the business. Most have lived and worked in their specialist regions as locals. They have friends, stories and roots there, and they return each year to fine tune their knowledge. When they share their favorite restaurant, backstreet bodega or most romantic proposal spot, you know they were there themselves not long ago. This expertise combined with our contact list of incredible guides and an impeccable door to door service has earned us the reputation of being the go-to tour operator if you seek spectacular experiences, from after hours tours of the Vatican to a seriously special private candlelit dinner in the Taj Mahal.
All that’s left for you to do is sit back, relax and anticipate the journey of a lifetime.
