It is a nice way to start the getaway. Brings you all around. Our guide Tim was awesome and funny. The only issue is the seats. There is not much leg room. My hubby is 6'2" and his knees were pressing against seat in front. When the trolley wasn't full we split seats but if you tall or have knee... More

Wonderful, wonderful tour we had!! The hop on/hop off tours are always a great way to see a city and this did not fail!!! We had 3 different drivers (since we "hopped off" a couple of times) and all 3 were exceptional. They were all knowledgeable and had such interesting and entertaining bits about this beautiful city. The trolleys were... More

Some tour guides are better than others. Some are quite rude about the rules, but I do understand why they have them (they have a strict "no cell phone calls" policy while on board). Tip: Definitely start out when they open. The tour takes a minimum of 2 hours (depending on traffic) to hit every stop, so take that into... More

Good option for getting a history of San Diego while getting transportation to key sites and areas. Liked the concept that you could get off and on at your leisure depending on what you wanted to explore further. Thought the price was a bit steep at $38. Would have expected $25 for what you got!

We have used the Old Town Trolley tours all over the world. We enjoy the relaxed ride throughout the cities without having to drive and deal with all the traffic. The drivers have a great sense of humour and give narration so you know what it is you are seeing. You can get off the trolley at any of their... More
