The trolley tour was great fun and informative at the same time; our driver Scotty was amusing all the way around, which made the trip even more fun. I would definitely recommend this to people travelling to San Diego

We took this tour the second day we were there. The drivers were funny, helpful, courteous and didn't treat you like a tourist. We had drivers Sully, Steve, Bill and Larry. These guys love what they are doing. They suggested places to eat and things to do. I highly recommend this tour and would do it again if ever in... More

Arrived in earlier than our hotel could check us in so we went over "thinking" we would just get something to eat, instead we wound up spending nearly 6 hours including a trolley ride and still didnt see the whole town...going back before we leave to enjoy more of that great atmosphere!

I have done this tour several times when visiting friends in the San Diego area. Main reason is because it is hop on and hop off. If you begin early in the morning, you can use it all day to get around the city. And if you are staying in San Diego, I would recommend the 2 day pass. It... More

Had a great time riding the trolley. The driver had many informative and entertaining stories about the city. Also a great way to tour the highlights of the city in one day. It's also great to the option of hopping on and off at wherever looks interesting.

A 25 mile narrated tour of the high points of San Diego, including Coronado Island, Embarcadero, and Balboa Park. Includes free on/off at any of 11 stops. A thoroughly enjoyable way to see San Diego.

This is the way to go! Begin early in your trip to trolly your way through San Diego. On and off makes for easy, so convenient way to hit the right spots, or at least know where they are so that you can return on your own. The only thing is that with some spots parking is not so close... More

We had Philip (with one L) how gave us a great Tour. This is a hop on off tour with several pickup spots. A Cruise ship was in that day so if you got off at a popular spot it was hard to get back on. They put on extra Trolleys to help with the crowd. We just did the... More

We did this tour during the 4th day of our 7 day trip. I wish we would have done it sooner. It's a great way to see parts of San Diego, and they also provide some history. So if you are wondering what there is to do, you'll have ideas for sure after doing this tour. You are able to... More

We bought our tickets online before cruise, but you can get tickets just outside the cruise ship terminal near the Maritime Museum. Capt. Bob was very entertaining. There are 11 stops. We only got off at 2. Most stops are shopping and eating. We got out at Balboa Park and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. Lots of museums... More
