the drivers are so wonderful and so interesting. They have so many stops you cant just pick one but that may all you have time for. If you can I suggest getting the two day pass it will make choosing your destinations easier!!

This was an enjoyable way to see the highlights of San Diego. The drivers gave an excellent narrative of the various sites of downtown San Diego. I especially liked going over the Coronado bridge and looking at the bay since I normally drive and over the bridge and can not sight see.

Best way to see San Diego. Jack and Brian O'Brien stood out, but all the drivers were great. They must get fed up saying the same jokes day in day out, but they all act as if it's the first time they said them and really look like they are enjoying their jobs. Only once our party of five couldn't... More

Decided to book two of the trolley tours, the city tour and the beach tour. The city tour was 72 dollars for 2 persons and the beach tour was 52 dollars for 2, both excellent value. With both tours we feel that we would not have seen half as much of San Diego if we had been by ourselves. Both... More

The biggest advantage is that you get a guided tour to most of the important places to see in Downtown San Diego. If you have the time available, take the 2-day tour. Day one to establish the places you'd like to go to, and day two for the hop-on, hop-off tour to visit the places you have identified. It is... More

It ran on time. The buses were crowded but we were there on a Saturday. When the bus was full, they called for another bus. The driver was knowledgeable and the tour was very interesting. We did the same tour in Boston and enjoyed it also. I love that you can get off along the tour visit a spot and... More

I took the downtown tour twice and the beach tour once over a two week period. All 3 tours were worth the money because we saw a beautiful city and didn't have to drive. My first driver was very ,very good. I think his name was John. He should be the standard by which other drivers are judged. He was... More

My wife and I toured old town San Deigo as well as the downtown and Coronado island on April 4, 2014 with the above trolley tour company. We found it to be well worth the money spent. We did the tour with my sister who has lived in and around the city for over 25 years. She loved it also... More

My husband and I took the Old Town Trolley Tour. Value for money. It was really excellent as you could stop off and get on at each of the main places to see in San Diego.
