“Great way to see the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

The trolley tour allowed us to see the city in a couple of hours and pinpoint what to explore. Great way to start a visit to San Diego. Our driver was friendly and told some great stories. Was surprised the trolley went on the highway - hold on tight. Also close your eyes over the bridge if you don't like heights.

“Great way to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

My husband and I only had two days in San Diego as part of a road trip and tickets to the trolley tour were definatly the best way to get the most from the town.

The staff on every trolley we got on were really friendly and had some great intersting stories, the rout itself allowed us to make the most of the day and take in as much of San Diego as possible, highlights for me were Coronado beach and the Old Town.

Good value for money and really easy to use.

“Essential for San Diego's first time visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Last week of August 2012. Visited SD for the first time in my life and fell in love with the city. Booked the old town trolley tour because of the good reviews, and it did not dissapoint us at all. This is the best way to have a little bit of each of the most representative places in town and then decide where to go to spend some more time. The staff is very nice and helpful. I specially remember Tommy, she really made us laugh. Two things I highly recommend for those going the first time: 1) try to catch the first bus in the morning, so you can really take advantage and see, and stay a little more in those places you like the most (we took the bus around noon and had to skip the last stop because we were short of time), and 2) Do this tour as early as possible after arriving to SD, so you can make plans to go later and explore more those places you liked most. Thanks OTTTSD for these wonderful tours!

“Get your bearings with this tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Tremendous way to see the different areas in one tour. Gives you the chance to find places to go back to and spend more time. Different trolley drivers have different styles - some more humorous (thanks Vidal) some more informative. Helped us get the most out of our stay.
