Our group of 59 recently did the Seal Tour with Old Town Trolley and it was FABULOUS!!! Because of the size of our group they came and picked us up at the hotel in 2 Seal Boat for the 1 1/2 hour tour. This tour gave them history of San Diego as well as a tour of the harbor. The... More

Great route that takes in the city's highlights and we learned a lot from the multi-skilled driver guides. Watch the end time, as the last bus system is not as straightforward as you'd think.

My mom visited San Diego for the first time recently, so I took her on Old Town Trolley Tours. I've done the tour twice before, and I now live in San Diego. FYI - the company offers residents free passes when accompanied by a paid ticket. We loved it! The driver talked a little fast, but there's so much to... More

Took his trip in September. Our driver and guide was called Tony. The guy is worth his weight in gold. He is so knowledgeable and amusing. He made the trip live. He showed off San Diego to its best. Was on a couple of other trolleys but none of the guides were as much fun as Tony. Worth getting on... More

The Old Town Trolley Tour of San Diego was an excellent way of seeing this beautiful city. It was a great way of deciding what we wanted to see more of, as we did the tour full circle first time round, then did it again by hopping on and off the trolley to see more of the sites we liked... More

For 39.00 I had hoped for more historical information. Boxcar was our driver and most of the time he told jokes and poked fun at the passengers on the trolley. It took you to several different places so if is a convenient way to see several areas. Watch the hours though they don't wait and you could easily miss the... More

I grew up in San Diego but have lived out of state for several years. My mother and sisters and I visited this Fall and the Trolley Tours were recommended. We had a fabulous fun day with the great tour guides and despite growing up here I learned a lot of new interesting facts about San Diego. I highly recommend... More

We had time to kill before going to the airport so we booked on the Old Town Trolley Tour. We paid $38.00 each and spent a great two hours touring San Diego, Old Town, Coronado and other areas. Our Trolley guide was Brian. A tour is only as good as its guide and this guy was funny and very entertaining.... More

My husband and I had such fun on our Old Town Trolley tour in San Diego. The tour guide was informative, helpful and kept our attention on the trip with his narrative. I highly recommend it to visitors on their first day in San Diego. You will then be more aware of what you want to visit in the coming... More
