Gosh how can I even say how great this tour is!! It doesn't look like much. But the drivers tell such great stories about the history of what you are seeing. And many times they also joke around a bit and have some fun with the groups too. It was a great tour around San Diego. I learned a lot... More

If you want to really see San Diego and all of San Diego then this is the Trolley to take. It is an all day event because it takes you to all the areas of San Diego including Coronado Island. The only place you won't go is Point Loma. Just do it, you will not be disappointed.

We used the Opportunity to hop on and off and mentioned that every Guide is very experienced ( we had 5 of them). You have many opportunities to do... More

Not the first Trolley tour we did in the States. Although they are quite expensive, we find them a nice way to see most of the sights of a beautiful city like San Diego in one day. You can hop on and off as you like, but especially later in the day, there are quite a few people waiting at... More

We like to take a Hop On/Off tour soon after we arrive in a city to get our bearings and help us prioritize what we want to explore more. The Old Town Trolley Tour was a perfect selection. We especially liked the stops at Old Town, Coronado and Balboa Park. We were within walking distance of Balboa so that gave... More

This is a great way to get a feel for San Diego and Coronado. Our driver Brian gave an amusing an informative commentary all of the way round. In particular this is the best way to go over the Coronado Bridge as the seats are well above the road level and you can take in the spectacular views on both... More

It was rainy and with two young folks wanting to move about the city I thought to try the Historic Trolley. We were so surprised by our driver and tour person wrapped up in one. His name is Miley O and he was just incredible! He knew San Diego and its history like no other. He was patient answering everyone's... More

We loved our tour guides Mike and Tom ... super friendly, well-informed and helpful! this tour was really well organized, as it was a busy day w/ a cruise ship in port as well and they had a lot of trolleys going. We were impressed w/ the smooth operation.

This is a very informative tour, we were on four different buses, with different guides, all had information to share that was very informative about the city and points of interest, I could reccomend this as a way to get an idea of what you want to visit.
