Our driver and guide was Ronald. He was a very careful driver and also made the tour highly entertaining and educational. We never hopped off but in the two hour circuit saw lots of highlights and saw where we did and did not want to return. A great way to get oriented in the city. Only possible problem we saw... More

The tour was worth the price. We especially enjoyed the ride with the driver "Hatch" who added a lot of interesting commentary on the major areas seen on the tour. He added laughter with educational commentary and photos. Great way to get a feel for San Diego and Coronado. Also if you time it right, you can spend time in... More

My wife and I took the trolley tour on a Sunday. We started early, which was a good thing since we ran out of time. Essentially this is like any of these tours- you drive place to place while the driver gives you history/background and fun facts. They all have a spiel with jokes and puns to entertain when at...

I couldn't find a spot to just review old town. The place is right out of Old Mexican times meets old town USA. It was fabulous. Tons of great Mexican food, lots of local crafts, and lots to see. Everywhere you turn is another museum or shop or food place. Just stroll down the streets and enjoy.

You can do this tour hop on-hop off. During weekends the busses can be really crowded, especially around the time when the cruise ships arrive. To be sure you'll get a seat, start from the old town. On other stops you may end up waiting for a few buses to go by without room for you. I liked the live... More

I was in San Diego for a work meeting and didn't get too much play time. This was a great way to take a day to see the city. There was a good mixture of stops. I like that you can get off the trolley and site see on your own and then get back on to go to the... More
