This tour gives you a good overview of the city. You can get on and off, which is nice. Be sure to ask the driver for a schedule. There are ten stops. We got off at one and took uber to the nearby mall. It was a lot cheaper this way than taking under all the way from our hotel.

We stayed in a hotel near Old Town, partly because of its proximity to this attraction. We bought a two-day package. We had a total of three drivers/guides. The one we were with longest was "Philip, with one L". He was great, informative, and entertaining. We had a couple of other drivers, including, I think, Casey (?). The tour is... More

We had a fun driver and loved that we could hop on and off as we wanted. We learned about the area and didn't have to worry about transportation. It is a great value and a good time.

Hopped on in Gas Lamp, hopped off on Coronado Island, hopped off at Balboa Park, hopped off at Gas Lamp. Tour guides were great! Learned a lot about beautiful San Diego from this tour, and the flexibility is wonderful. Can buy tickets online, so very convenient. Only minus is that the trolleys can get very full and as is often... More

Hilarious! They had a lot to show us and they gave their best to make us laugh! The trip included going over the bridge and that was exhilarating. The windows were open and if you like excitement sit next to them when you cross the bridge ! We only had one day but wish we had two with the trolley... More

There is no need to purchase the Trolley tickets in advance online from a vendor other than Old Town Trolley. The "conductors" have excellent customer service skills. The narrations vary somewhat form driver to driver and Casey and Susie were terrific with their inside knowledge having grown up in San Diego. The trolley saves tourists from looking for parking in... More

You can see it all, driving by or stopping in and spending time: Old Town, Gaslamp Quarter, Downtown, the Convention Centre, shopping and dining, Balboa Park (amazing sites and museums), the ocean, ships and military, Coronado Bay Bridge!, Del Coronado Hotel and island shopping and dining. The tour of about 10 stops takes about 2 hours if you don't get... More

We started at " Old Town Station". You can get off at any or all stops along the route. They give you a list of times the trolley picks people up at each stop. You can choose to ride the full route without getting off but honestly getting off allows you to see more and adventure to different areas. We... More

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
