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

The Old Town Trolley Tour was a great way to get out and see San Diego, and learn about its history. There are plenty of stops along the way so you can explore all of the different areas. The highlight for our trip was Coronado Island. Since we didn't have a car, it was a fun way to get out... More

We chose to take this trolley tour on the last day of our week-long San Diego vacation. We knew it would be a relaxing way to spend the day, and we also knew it would an easy way to travel to Coronado, which was the one remaining place we hadn't yet visited. We purchased tickets ahead of time through our... More

We had a short weekend stay in San Diego and wanted to "case" the joint as much as possible. This trolley experience was terrific as we were taken all around the city with very informative drivers. The waiting lines were short; there were no parking issues; and we could go around again and again. On our next trip we plan... More

We took the trolley tour to see San Diego in a quick, concise manner. Our guide/driver was "Hatch". This guy was not only a wealth of information but hugely entertaining. He's got his schtick and timing down and it really added to what could have otherwise been a boring tour ride.

We highly recommend taking this tour around San Diego. It goes all over all areas including Coronado. You can get on and off as you wNt. We rode the entire way around to see our choices and then wNt back to the areas we wanted to spend more time. The history given by driver is really fun too.

My daughter and I visited San Diego and did not rent a car. The trolley tour allowed us to hop on and off at each stop from 10:00 to about 5:00 in the afternoon. We took the Beach Tour which took us to Mt. Soleday and then down to La Jolla and then Pacific Beach. It was great because we... More

I read the reviews here after we purchased tickets, and based on the operator's responses to negative reviews, hoped the reports of full trolleys was an infrequent occurrence. Alas, I was wrong. I now believe this company knowingly oversell its tours and has nowhere near enough capacity to handle all the ticket purchasers. If they truly were dedicated to having... More

We took the city trolley tour starting at the rail station in Old Town. I believe we passed a majority of the prime tourist areas plus went over to Coronado Island. It was a very windy day so be prepared with head gear and sweater/light jacket. With the wind it was sometimes difficult to hear the bus driver. A good... More
