“So easy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This was such a great thing for us to do on a cloudy rainy day. We got to see all of the places we wanted to see (although it was brief). It gave us a great overview of San Diego. We got to eat in the gaslamp district, get souvenir stuff in Seaport village, walk around and enjoy Little Italy and Coronado. And drive through Balboa Park, Old Town, The convention center area, etc. There are 11 stops total and a trolley comes every 30 minutes. And when one trolley was full they immediately called another trolley so we didn't have to wait until 30 minutes for a new one. Overall a great day, I wish we would have started it earlier so we could have had more time at more drop offs

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This tour is so fun. The drivers take you to different tourist spots in San Diego. You can get off or back on at different set stops usually every half hour. Some of the places you stop at are the Harbor, Seaport Village Gaslamp District, Horton Plaza, 2 places on Coronado Island, Balboa Park, Little Italy and your starting point Old Town. I did the tour 2 days and so I got to experience many of the drivers. I especially like RJ. Another passenger and I had so much fun laughing with RJ. I also took the SEAL touor. This is on a vehicle that goes on land and in water. You get to see the seal lions up close and also the dolphins that the Navy trains. The dolphins you don't get to see that close. The Navy has its rules. Capt Adams and 1st Mate Scott mad it a fun experience. If it is cool out, they have blankets you can use.

“Must have”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

When in San Diego, you should really attend this attraction, you will visit all the locations needed in San Diego in a few hours and when you want to visit anything just get out and jump back in after your done. You get tons of information about the history of the city and also the stories about the places. I was only a few days in San Diego to sightseen and this was so much fun! You should do it together with the weather tour.

“A fun way to learn about San Diego and Coronado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We jumped on the Old Town Trolley 3 different days. We stayed at the Hilton Bayfront and there was a stop on site. We enjoyed all of the drivers and their different personalities as we listened to them tell some history about San Diego. Thanks Todd, Bones, Tomi, Ken, Murray and a special message to Hatch- thank you from your Delaware traveler we're far and few between but it was funny to talk to your Delaware friend via cell!
