We paid near 40$ each for max 10 stops. The big problem was to many folks want go by Trolley, but not enough space. So you have to wait at each station you planned to go out, to come on one of the next Trolley. Waiting time between the Trolleys 30 min. So you could not stop and go out... More

I'm a believer in any Hop on/Hop off bus system for any place I am visiting for the first time. Great route stopped at the highlights of San Diego. Driver's were great, funny, and informative! I would start your day as soon as they open (9:00am?) because we were so disappointed we ran out of time to see everything. We... More

My only complaint was that there maybe aren't quite enough trolleys as at several stops, there weren't enough seats and people ended up... More

My Wife and I, never being to San Diego, were looking for a way to get a feel for the city. After looking at a few possibilities, we choose the Old Town Trolley. It proved to be the right choice for a number of reasons. First and foremost our driver/guide, Alex, was terrific and made the entire venture very enjoyable.... More

The Old Town trolley travels through out San Diego and over to Coronado beach, if you stay on for the whole ride it takes about 2 hours. You can get on and off when every you like and another one usually arrives every 30 minutes. The driver did give me a time table so it did help when I got... More

When visiting San Diego start with the trolley tour, it's worth doing it allows you to get your bearings and see all the main attractions. The drivers are very informative with regards the history surrounding San Diego and also give you lots of tips.

We did not use the tour but know the old town trolley goes to all attractions except San Diego safari park and legoland . If you would like to save on parking use the trolley will save a lot on transportation and parking . Book for the trolley through city pass .
