“Great Value”
Reviewed August 14, 2014

If you have a small amount of time in this beautiful city - this is the way to go. Its a wonderfully narrated overview of the city with the ability to get off and on whenever you want.

The conductors are terrific, pointing out great places in the city.

Special thank you to Shaela who shared with us it was her last trip

“Best way to see”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

This tour is not cheap, but when you take it you'll understand. I suggest you start in Old Town as the parking is free and you can park all day. Unlike big bus tours this is a trolley on wheels It has many stops and you can get off at one or all of them as another trolley will come along in about a half hour. Your starting place is your ending place. The tour guides give you a lot of history along the way. Old Town, Bay, Gas lamp, Coronado, Balboa Park, the Zoo and everything along the way, you can't beat it for a great way to see all the city highlights and avoid the traffic. A must do.

“Lot of Bang for your Buck”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

This tour takes you from Old Town to Downtown to Convention Center to Coronado to Balboa Park to Gaslamp and more... Beware of getting off you may have to wait a couple of trolleys before one comes along with available seating.

“Fun Trolley Tour”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

We had a fun time on the trolley tour with the family. We rode the tour all around San Diego finally getting off in Old Town for lunch. A couple hours later we hopped on and rode it to the Midway.

Guides were very nice and informative. No problem finding a seat for the 5 of us but at several stops we had no room for other tourists. It would have been frustrating if that happened to us, depending on the wait for the next trolley.

It wasn't cheap for a day pass ( $40 ) but a great way to see San Diego without driving and parking headaches.

“Want to see San Diego, but time is limited? This is great!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

The trolley let's everyone see San Diego"s wonderful sights,and you don't have to drive and find parking at each location. You can hop on and off at different locations and explore all day. The other advantage is you can go back to areas you really liked and spend more time the next day. The drivers are fun and informative, and if you go with a local, they ride free if they bring a paying guest! Their website will give you all you need to know, and the ticket people in Old Town are friendly.
