Went on the Trolley Beach Hopper to La Jolla and Jon was our tour guide. He was very informative, kind and knowledgeable on all things San Diego.. We girls from Nevada say.. Go on his tour and have a great time.

This is such a great way to get around San Diego and see the sites. I love that you can hop off and on as much as you like. I recommend starting early to fit in as many activities as possible.

At $39.99, very overpriced. San Diego does not have enough sites to justify the amount charged. At least 3 of 10 stops were either hotels or shopping centers. Probably worth about half the price.

Yes. It was underwhelming. Not enough lights to be impressive. Tour driver/conductor was great, there just wasn’t enough lights to make it worth the money or time.
