I was given a ticket to the trolley tour by someone who wasn't going to use theirs. My husband was at a seminar in San Diego, so I went on the tour by myself. I lived in San Diego for several years prior to this, so I am somewhat of a "local" but this tour gave me a completely different... More

I was expecting this to be a run of the mill tour around the city, but it turned out to be much more! The tours are a lot of fun and the fact that you can get off and on at each stop means you can get real value for money if you make an early start. The driver of... More

The tour was interesting. We did learn some things about our city that we didn't know. The tour guides ranged from good to not so great. You can't pick and choose your guide. A couple of times the trolleys were full and we had to wait for the next one. The wait wasn't long. Would I do the ride again?... More

My family and I visited San Diego for almost a week. The Seal Tour was a really convenient and fast way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. It was really cool to see the bay from the water. The guides (Captain Murphy and 1st Mate Frank) were very courteous, knowledgable, and entertaining. I... More

We only had a day in San Diego. The trolley was great because it allowed us to spend as much or as little time as we wanted at each stop. Even though we'd seen some of the areas on the tour, I enjoyed the driver commentary and learned some things I didn't know. The trolley was full in Coronado so... More

It would have been impossible to drive to each of the locations we visited. What a great opportunity!! Delightful, informative and well worth the cost! So glad for the inside information that the knowledgeable staff shared. Totally awesome

I have lived in San Diego for 11 years but had not seen many of the places the tour covered. I had a cousin visiting and did not want to try to drive and park at all of the places we wanted to go, so I checked out the San Diego Old Town Trolley Tour. Most of the destinations were... More

This was a fourth time in San Diego but there was so much that we didn't see the first few times. We didn't want to drive to all these sites and worry about traffic or parking, so this was the way to go. To be able to walk the beaches of Coronado, followed by shopping / walking through Seaport Village... More

We really enjoyed our San Diego Old Town Trolley Tour - it was informative and entertaining. We have been to San Diego several times before and have friends here also but learnt several new things about the city that we did not know before. There were sufficient trolleys for the number of people and we never had to wait beyond... More

The trolleys are a great way to see San Diego. One of the few cities where such a transportation system covers almost the entire city. You can start in Old Town and go all the way to Coronado with it. Being stationed here for years, I used this system a lot. Combine it with the red San Diego rail Trolley... More
