I was spending 4 days in San Diego without a car and the one place everyone said you need a car to get to is La Jolla. Old Town actually has a route that takes you through the beaches and it worked out perfectly for me. I was staying in the Gaslamp District and I took the green line to... More

I have taken Old Town Trolley Tours before in other cities, so was glad to find them in San Diego. They are well run and the drivers are excellent, but the trolley seats were not super comfortable for riding more than a few stops..

My friend and I took this tour on our second day in San Diego. We decided it would be a wonderful way of quickly visiting all the major attractions. It was great because we could then decide which places we wanted to re-visit by car and really spend more time getting to know the place. The drivers are knowledgeable, friendly,... More

Caught the trolley tour in Old Town, San Diego. It is a two hour tour but you can get on and off at approximately ten stops. It hits many of the major points of interest, including Coronado Island. The drivers are great with local information and one can relax and not worry about getting lost.

A very good tour. You can get on and off the trolley as you like! Every tour guide had something different to offer for information. You have to spend about 30 minutes in old town even if you didn't want to and that was the only downside. The trolley goes almost everywhere you would want to go including: Coronado Island,... More

If you have a small amount of time in this beautiful city - this is the way to go. Its a wonderfully narrated overview of the city with the ability to get off and on whenever you want. The conductors are terrific, pointing out great places in the city. Special thank you to Shaela who shared with us it was... More

This tour is not cheap, but when you take it you'll understand. I suggest you start in Old Town as the parking is free and you can park all day. Unlike big bus tours this is a trolley on wheels It has many stops and you can get off at one or all of them as another trolley will come... More

This tour takes you from Old Town to Downtown to Convention Center to Coronado to Balboa Park to Gaslamp and more... Beware of getting off you may have to wait a couple of trolleys before one comes along with available seating.

We had a fun time on the trolley tour with the family. We rode the tour all around San Diego finally getting off in Old Town for lunch. A couple hours later we hopped on and rode it to the Midway. Guides were very nice and informative. No problem finding a seat for the 5 of us but at several... More

The trolley let's everyone see San Diego"s wonderful sights,and you don't have to drive and find parking at each location. You can hop on and off at different locations and explore all day. The other advantage is you can go back to areas you really liked and spend more time the next day. The drivers are fun and informative, and... More
