“Very Enjoyable”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Caught the trolley tour in Old Town, San Diego. It is a two hour tour but you can get on and off at approximately ten stops. It hits many of the major points of interest, including Coronado Island. The drivers are great with local information and one can relax and not worry about getting lost.

“Tour San Diego”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

A very good tour. You can get on and off the trolley as you like! Every tour guide had something different to offer for information. You have to spend about 30 minutes in old town even if you didn't want to and that was the only downside. The trolley goes almost everywhere you would want to go including: Coronado Island, little Italy they even have a stop that is walking distance from the zoo. It is the cheapest way to get around and you get a lot of good information from the drivers.

“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.
