“great information about a great city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

We boarded the trolley in Old Town...was able to park for free in lot across the street for the day. Was planning on getting off the first stop to visit USS Midway but Hatch was such a great guide-informational and fun, that we stayed on the whole tour and got off second time around. Nice feature-on and off. Got great recommendation from Hatch where to eat and go...used most of them and were terrific. Tour trolleys were clean and efficient and on-time! Would definitely recommend taking on first day of your trip to get a sense of city and the history.

“Best Way to See a City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

CUSTOMER COMMENTS:




I was surprised that you really did hit all the areas we wanted to see.
I loved that we could get on and off and that your guides were so
informative, entertaining, and knowledgeable. After hearing the jobs
they had all retired from previously, I realized we were on tour with
the pillars of your community. What a treat. I am sending my aunts and
mother down next month for your tour, they are the first of many I plan on telling about your tour. Thanks again for the great memories we made that day.

“A wonderful way to see San Diego!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

My sister & I were given tickets to see San Diego by Trolley, we had a wonderful day! Our friend from San Diego came with us. The most impressive aspect was that we had the freedom to get off the trolley at the sights we wanted to see!
We were really impressed that when we were catching the trolley, if there was no more seats left on the trolley within a couple of minutes another trolley arrived to collect the excess people!
Our friend said that she had a great time as well!
The only thing that was difficult was that we were unable to stop at Balboa Park as we were too late! We started the day on the first trolley of the morning and were on the last trolley of the day!!! We just didn't have enough time! We loved The Coronado Hotel!! At the end of the day we sat down in Old Town San Diego listening to wonderful music with a wine in hand reminiscing over our memorable day!!
Coming from Sydney Australia it is well worth using the Old Town Trolley Tours!

“awesome tour so worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

this tour is so good. you can get on and off at different stops or just stay on the tour the whole time. It is the best way to see San Diego. The tour guide is amazing and knows so much stuff. You could never drive around and see so much for yourself.

“Make Old Town Trolley Tours Your First Stop in San Diego!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our Old Town Trolley Tour. Even our 13-year-old son had fun! The tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable about all things "San Diego" but his sense of humor and "trivia tid bits" kept everyone entertained. We only regret that we didn't take the tour the first day we arrived as it showed us all the points of interest that we would have liked to explore further had we more time. We took a late afternoon tour and so we could not get off and explore at each stop. If we return to San Diego we'll take an early morning tour so we can take advantage of this terrific method of transportation for seeing ALL of San Diego!
