The trolley itself is great. Takes you all around San Diego points of interest for 35.00 (I got a 5$ off on the actually trolley website bought online). That part (buying ticket on my phone) was easy and streamlined as it was a last minute decision. The guide was not great and I should have gotten off and on with... More

Our guide may or may not be the norm, but was very informed and very chatty. Going to Coronado was my favorite part of the tour.

Most tourists sign up for these tours and get a great taste of several areas of San Diego - but... if you live here you can get a discount (pay for 1 get 1 free)! A girlfriend and I took the tour last summer from Old Town, through downtown, to Seaport Village over to Coronado, then to Little Italy and... More

We had an excellent day, really informative and fun. We were very impressed in that when a trolley became full, a backup was immediately called to take care of us. Great service. All the crew seemed great fun. We were well taken care of by Mikey O and captain Bob, both of whom were great characters.

Very good tour. A nice way to see the city, and learn how it was developed. The drivers are very friendly, and are very knowledgeable.

Friendly trolley drivers, informative commentary. Sadly, the staff at the kiosk near the US Grant was unhelpful, annoyed and arrogant. The staff member insisted I pay $5 USD for a map that could be downloaded! While I waited for the trolley, other tourists arrived and was handed free maps by the same staff member who now was more cheerful. No... More

We will certainly do this again when we travel to another new city. It was our first time in San Diego and we were looking for the best places to explore. We booked the bus at our hotel front desk (very convenient) and were picked up the next morning from the hotel next door and taken to the first stop... More

We had a good travel around san diego. Even with the wind and bad weather we manage to make the best of the tour. Our favorite stop was Jolla very beautiful . The trolley tour was not that expensive and was a good experience.

For $40 you get a good overview of SD history, culture, movie references, and comments on eating spots. All done with a mostly good sense of humor (depending on driver). Hop on or off at about 10 stops covering a good spread of the city, from Coronado to Balboa Park to Old Town and the Gaslamp district. Don't worry about... More
