We got into town about 3:00 and hopped right on! We didn't get off at any stops but it was great to see the sights and our guide was awesome! I would think if you got there early a great way to hop off and...More

I like to take the tour to get a feel of a city. The trolley stop was close to our hotel. It's a one way trolley, so the entire loop takes about 2 hours. We did do a loop then went to Little Italy &...More

This had potential to be good but was way too expensive for what we got. We paid $80 for 2 of us. Called that morning to find out an "approximate" time they get to each stop. Woman was so rude she would not give us...More

Two plus hour tour if you don't get off. Nice 25 mile loop around San Diego and Coronado. Seats are not really comfortable. Plus sized people had some difficulty with the on and off. Some trolleys are HC equipped.

If I buy a "hop on hop off" ticket, it states it is good for 24 hours. If I hop on at 1pm, could j also hop on the next day at 9:00am, for example as my 24 hrs wouldn't be up yet. Also, is there a "deal" to buy two days of the trolley tour
