“A nice day in San Diego”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I took this tour at the end of a visit to San Diego. By this time I was familiar with the Gaslamp quarter, so the remainder of the tour was more of an experience. The drivers were friendly, they do let you know of restroom facilities by key stops, and have radio system to communicate when extra trolleys needed. Exploring at any/all stops welcome, I would certainly recommend at Hotel del Coronado and Balboa Park stops.

“Worth the ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is a very good way to enjoy touring the city. Our driver/ guide Victor spoilt the tour by thinking he was auditioning for a comedy show (badly) instead off giving any interesting facts about the lovely city of San Diego. Beware if any cruise ships have docked because it gets very busy and the waiting in line can become very frustrating, it left some very angry people not being able to get back on. Our tip, do the whole trip first getting off at stops on the second circuit you think might be of interest to you. Old town is a must.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

What a great way to see San Diego! The drivers/commentators were fantastic. All the drivers were knowledgable, friendly and polite. Each had there own personal way of giving you information about the important and historic areas that we saw.
Our hotel was in the 'hotel circle' so Vidal picked us up and explained how the trip worked for us on the way to Old Town. This is a great service and what a fantastic guy! Keep up the magic and remember to keep your hair on.
You will get great photos as they try to stop and let you get the best views. This is a 'Hop Off - Hop On' tour so you have plenty of time to get off and explore before you catch another one. The trolleys are also very punctual, which means you aren't wasting time waiting for a trolley.

“Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This was great and saved me having to spend gas money and reading maps. We got off at 2 stops and next time will stop at different places. Each driver had fun stories as well as interesting. If you sit towards the back of the Trolley you can take great pictures as you cross the Coronado Bridge if the plastic windows are rolled up (sit on right going & left side going back).

“Great way to see the hilights of San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We did this on a cooler, slightly rainy day so we didn't get off and see each "area" we went to but it was very good to get a tour of so many important and historic areas of San Diego. Would highly recommend this.
