We had 3 drivers and all were knowledgeable and fun. Good to get a feel for where the sights are and how close they really are. Would have liked more sights and less shopping. But that's where the money is. Did enjoy getting off at Coronado Island and touring the Hotel Del. Mostly covid safe. More crowded as the day went on. Definitely would recommend.

Thanks to Howie aka G Pop! You could tell he enjoyed his job and entertaining people. He did a wonderful job of sharing stories (some of them about his dad coming ashore after extended Navy tours) We got a great feel for SD and the area. Always nice to get connected to the places you visit, and Howie did that very well. Thanks! and congrats on the g babies!

This was a fun way for our family of four to see the various parts of town. While we didn't hop off at every stop, we saw several spots that we will want to visit whenever we return to San Diego. As other reviewers have shared, the drivers are all friendly and narrate the trip with a nice mix of historical facts and corny jokes. During COVID, capacity in the trolley is limited. So if you have a very large party (e.g., multiple families together), you may need to be patient and divide your crew into different trolleys.
