We live in Orange County, 90 minutes north of San Diego and we have been to San Diego many times to visit the amusement parks and zoos. It took having out-of-state grandparents visiting to motivate us to find this trolley as another way to see San Diego. We are so glad we did. We took the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner train... More

We had a fabulous time in San Diego and it's because we had outstanding guides on the trolleys. Any information we needed to know we got answers from the trolley drivers or staff. We even got first surfing experience advice from a life long surfer! He was excited for us because we were taking on the adventure. Very professional and... More

We had a fun time, and this is an excellent way to see all of the sights of the city. I liked the idea that we could hop off to spend time at the various stops. But, the information varied from driver to driver, as well as the level of fun. I would probably do this tour again, but it... More

Hop On & Hop off trolley is a GREAT way to get round any tourist area. My husband and I used them in Boston. It was Great. No worries as to try to find parking for our car. For $38.00 a ticket/per person is not bad if you are only ONE or TWO Persons and you got time to kill.... More

We only had one day in San Diego and decided to try the Old Town Trolley as a way to get an overview of the city. We have been on these types of tours in other cities but none were close to this one for educational and entertainment value. We got the special bonus of having Vidal for our tour... More

We spent a week in San Diego without a car, this was a brilliant way of seeing San Diego. We were staying on Shelter Island and there was even a free shuttle from our hotel to Sea Port Village provided by Old Town tours which was really handy for us. We got off at every stop so managed to do... More

When I visit a new city, I usually take a trolley or bus tour like this to get an overview of the area. Then I can go back and concentrate on particular points of interest. The trolley tour's route covers a lot of ground including Coronado. The trolleys themselves aren't all that comfortable for riding the route all the way... More

This trolley experience was one of the highlights of our trip to San Diego. It is great for adults and kids alike. Easy way to see the area and lots of fun options at each stop (be sure to stop and explore Coronado beach for sure and eat in Old Town). The drivers are excellent and fun. We will definitely... More
