Old Town Trolley Tours was such a unique transportation experience. We booked The Bella trolley for our wedding on... 09/30/2023. It transported us around San Diego before and after the ceremony. Benjamin, our driver, kept us hyped with a great playlist during our ride and even gave us suggestions for great photo shoot ideas inside and outside The Bella. I cannot express how amazing it was to work with Jeanette and the team to book The Bella. We recommend booking months in advance, especially for September weddings, as it is one of the busiest times of the wedding season.read more

A really good way to get to see parts of the city you might not get to otherwise.

Some very entertaining stories from the three guides we met as we hopped on and off at various locations.read more

Thanks Goose!ALSO, for anyone reading this before taking the tour & if you get lucky enough to be on Goose’s bus, LISTEN TO HIS SUGGESTIONS!!!!!

Did the trolley tour since it was a bit of a rainy morning in San Diego. Frank was our driver/host/guide and although... he was fairly new, he was well versed in San Diego history and culture. We had a good time exploring the city and have enjoyed the trolley tours in other cities with this not being any exception. If in San Diego again, will definitely either do the tour again or pick our favorite spots and spend more time there. Definitely recommended though!read more

Normally, my group of friends will do a guided city tour to fill in our trip itinerary. This trolley tour would be... worth a two day ride. So many places they stop were places we had planned to visit. I wish we had taken the opportunity to hop off/on more of those places instead of driving ourselves back to the locations. The guide was articulate and very informative. She was full of facts and entertaining as well. This tour is totally worth the cost!read more

Although I think it’s a lil expensive, the tour itself is good and we had a very friendly and informative trolley... driver named Patricia. It took about 2 hours or so to complete the full tour without hopping off at any location. We started off at the old market stop and ended there as well. Through out the tour, the driver shared information about various landmarks and places along the way.read more

It was a wonderful experience to be on this tour.1. They cover a large part of city that can be toured.2. The... drivers keep narrating the history behind the place. All of them have their own style of communication, trying to engage the travelers.3. You can de-board the bus wherever you want to (at designated spots), hang out at places and can hop on to the next bus for further stops.4. They also give you recommendations about various restaurants.5. You are tension free for taking Uber or riding your own car and finding parking spotsread more

We took the trolley twice and loved Sherry & Lynn! We recommend going early and taking the whole trip so you hear... everything and get an idea of what you want to do. The presentation was goofy & lighthearted with fun music! You don't want to forget your jacket, though, because it's really breezy in a few spots. Save your sticker & get discounts at restaurants and museums. Ask your driver which ones before you get off.read more

The tour is free for San Diego County locals in January 2023 and the day I went was amazing. I highly recommend any of... their tours if you want to see, hop on and off the main famous locations in San Diego m, of course it can’t be 100% comprehensive of everything our great city has to offer but you will get an awesome chance to see a lot, learn a lot, and better plan your time here!read more

I really enjoyed getting to know a little bit about San Diego this is a very crowded tour. I started off with a seat to... myself, I stayed on the whole time by the end I had shared the side seat with five different people. At some point I couldn't really hear the guide well anymore so I just put my headphones in and enjoyed the ride.. One thing that I didn't like was how when I first came I was having a problem pulling up my coupon from Groupon and was asking the customer service representative if you know how and he came off a little snide saying that it's not a requirement that they would. I think it would be helpful and good customer service presentation to just be helpful and not be so dismissive. Otherwise it was a good tour I appreciate the driver for getting us where we need to be safely and appreciate the nice views.read more

Super Fun Tour, before you decide to book this, make sure you are willing to do this. It is a hop on and hop off... experience. There is traffic, so pick up times and travel times may differ, they are not in control of that. Getting everything done in one day is impossible to I recommend getting the 2 day, although I'll be getting the 3 day next time. If you get Milo as your Driver, man he is very cool and fun. He went above and beyond to give my family the best experience. Overall this is a really cool thing to do, specially if you don't want to drive and deal with parking.read more

Third opportunity to take this awesome tour! This time, I brought my boyfriend! Our first driver was Benjamin, and we... got off on Coronado Island. After hanging out on the island and getting some lunch, we hopped back on to have Captain Bob as our navigator. I have had the privilege of having Captain Bob before, and he's right on top of the history! That's what makes these tours so awesome: each time I obtain a different piece of knowledge! We rode to Old Town and adventured on our own for a bit. Once we re-boarded, we had Nico as our guide back to the Gaslamp Quarter. All three guides offered up superb historical information! This is turning into a habit when I visit San Diego, so I can say with certainty, "see you next time!"read more

THE TOUR IS ABSOLUTELY WORTH EVERY PENNY. Staff made a great effort to make our experience exciting, safe, fun and... informative. We were a group of teens( four 18 yo and one 17 yo) in town for our senior trip. This was the best next safe alternative to taking an Uber around town. Barbie at stop C sold us our 2-day tickets and discounted San Diego Zoo tickets. She also gave us some amazing restaurant recommendations in Little Italy. We had the privilege of meeting 4 amazing drivers: Tommy, Howie, James and Chris. Each made sure that we knew absolutely everything about anything we saw along the tour, adding in some cheesy audio with Arnold Schwarzenegger and dad jokes during the tour. We used the service as advertised, to hop-on-and-off at any stop we please. During the final pick-up round of the day, the drivers went out of their way to drop us off at any stop we pleased even if it meant we were the only passengers on board. Thank you Old Town Trolley for making our trip such a blast. Looking forward to trying out the tours for other cities like Key West and Boston.read more

We used Old Town Trolley to shuttle guests from our Rehearsal Dinner to our Welcome Drinks and they were absolutely... fantastic. They were extremely easy to coordinate with, proactive in their communication with us and provided excellent shuttle service. The driver called me the night before to reconfirm all of the details and was right on time. She was flexible with us, as our rehearsal dinner ran a little long, but provided excellent service to get us to our next location.They were also an extremely affordable option!I would absolutely use Old Town Trolley again and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a really fun way to shuttle family and friends around.read more

Old Town Trolley Tour is a great way to see and learn about San Diego in a 2 hour tour. Jack the tour guide from... Trolley 63 was a rock star.

Yes I’m bias but I’m sure the other guides are great as well. Anyway sit back, relax and enjoy yourselves. Well worth the price of admission. Also, please don’t forget to tip your Trolly guide.read more

We had a great time on the tour but being local to socal and within an hour drive we probably would have just went... directly to our 2 stops (maritime museum and little Italy).I would highly suggest going for anyone out of town or not familiar with that area. Even though we have been down to SD at least a dozen times, we didn't know how amazing the maritime museum is! It was so worth it! Took almost 3 hours on the 1st of 12 stops! We took the 40 minute boat tour along with touring the ships. It was so amazing and detailed.read more

I like taking the Old Town Trolley Tours. I have also taken the tour in a few other cities. I like how friendly the... drivers are. They also share some history of the city. Being able to hop off at any of the stops and hop back on is a good idea. Trolleys come by about every 20 minutes. I live in San Diego and the tour company has a "Hometown Pass". A San Diego resident can go on the tour for free as long as they're with a full paying adult. I have been also able to go for free on the Seal Tour and the City Lights tour as well as the Hometown Trolley Tour.read more

An absolutely awesome way to see the city! I would suggest getting on the first trolley of the day to get a head start... on your journey. Most of the stops on the tour you could spend half a day or a whole day visiting, so it's a great way to plan out your trip early on! The tour is very informative and a lot of fun. There is some "whitewashing" in the history portion of the tour, with no reference to the indigenous peoples that inhabited the area prior to the modern world. Overall would recommend for families and couples alike.read more

Little pricey. Well worth it though! No matter what trolley, the driver is awesome. They provide interesting / factual... information on the landmarks of SD. The trolleys stop every 30 min at the designated stop (they give you a map and they also tell you every stop). There are a about 5-10 stops throughout SD. Just pay attention where you got dropped off. I suggest to start earlier because every stop is a must see,I started late and wished I started earlier! The last trolley pick-ups are around 5/6pm. Would definitely to again.read more

The day before I was supposed to go I called and they told me to be at the... stop at 9 in the morning and they will sell me tickets before heading out at 9:30. I get there at 9:15 no one‘s there 925 still no one so then I call the main number and then she tells me that somebody will be there. I tell her that I need to purchase a ticket and she says that I won’t be able to purchase it at that stop but she can help me out over the phone. Since I did the night tour before hand I was told I would get a $10 discount, The sales rep tells me that that won’t apply and I will only get a partial discount. What a scam! DO NOT DO THE NIGHT TOUR! City Lights, or something like that. They zoom by places and you can’t even see what you are supposed to see. Furthermore I didn’t see the city lights they more or less just showed me the daytime attractions but again it’s dark I thought they will be lit up. Waste of money and time.read more

Great tour! Wonderful, caring staff! I left a package on the tour bus. As well as losing a hearing aid. The customer... service staff went out of their way to help me retrieve both items. Guides Jack and Rodney were super funny and engaging. Had a great time!read more

A great way to get a guided tour of the city. You hop off and on and see the sights that you're most interested in. ... You can't possibly see it all in one day, but this gives you a preview and you can drive back and spend more time in the areas that interest you the most.read more

Great way to see the city in a short period. You can jump off where you want to explore more. Even with limited seating... due to Covid did not have any trouble getting back on a Trolley. Being a new traveller to SD this was a perfect introduction. Definitely worth the money. And you also get history and trivia from the drivers along the way.read more

Such a fun way to see San Diego! The conductors are fun, the views are beautiful and the unlimited boarding for the... full day is so convenient. There's plenty of time to spend at each stop, or you can just ride and look at the city. We will absolutely do another tour when we're back in town.read more

Tour lasted about two hours, was originally trying to do the Beach tour but that’s suspended til further notice. Would... have been very appreciated if this information was posted on the site prior to purchasing the tickets. My friend and I planned to get off the hop on/off bus to walk around but it seemed that the day we went, they had sold too many tickets. We just sat through the whole ride so we were able to get back. Many people were waiting at the stops to be picked up for at least an hour in almost 110 degree weather.read more

Monday August 17 2020 bought 2 Tickets for the San Diego Trolley Tour.I feel they have reopened too soon.I called in... advance before I purchased my tickets.I asked the employee if we took the tour would the businesses on the tour be open and would there be anything to do considering this Covid situation. He said yes, lots of the businesses were now open.This was far from the truth.I spent almost $100 on tickets for 2.You can go to Coronado Beach and eat off a food truck (that's their restaurant right now), there are lots of restaurants open if you want to eat outside on the street but it was a hot and humid day. Only a few shops were open in Old town. The Zoo was open but you have to pay the entrance fee and that would be a thing to do when you have a whole day.I feel the employee should have been truthful with me and let me decide if that was worth it. The driver pointed out many featured places to go and see but are not yet open still because of Covid closures. I complained to a gentleman at the ticket counter when we returned from the tour. He didn't feel it was that big of a deal.I drove my car 2 hours to get here and spent almost $100.of my hard earned dollars when I could have driven myself to the beach for free.I would not recommend you take this tour at this time unless they lower the price to half until the businesses, museums Etc.. reopen.read more

Our guide Jardel was terrible. He did not enforce passengers to wear masks. A passenger had to tell 2 other passengers... to put their masks back on. Jardel did not prevent a passenger from Vaping. A family boarded the tour at Balboa park. A few minutes later the child started screaming and never quit screamin until they got off the tour bus in Little Italy. Our guide got mad at me because I asked to have someone get the kid to stop screaming. The guide told me to stop commenting on the distraction and it was ok because the kid was a child. I did not pay $40.00 nor did the other passengers pay to hear a kid scream non stop.We did not get a guided tour. Instead we had to endure a out of control kid SCREAMING.read more

I purchased our tickets online at a slight discount, so that helped. I recommend taking this tour pretty early on in... your trip. It will expose you to many different areas of SD, and then pick out areas you would like to focus more time on later. The drivers were all good. Everyone had their own style of delivering the information, but they all had interesting little nuggets. The trolleys were clean and fairly new. The hop on hop off feature is great. You can use it as Transportation, more so if you had the two day pass ( we did not ). The ride over the Coronado bridge brought up the pucker factor because the trolley is basically open air and it gets windy up there. Beautiful views!read more

Can we go ahead and give the trolley 10 stars? All the drivers were AMAZING. And each stop on the trip was an adventure... on it's own. Each location can very easily be it's own day trip. A few of the more popular locations can be a bit of a wait if the trolley fills up (Cornado and Balboa Park). But I think the company sent an extra trolley for those that had to wait.read more

We took the tour from seaport if you used them before keep your tickets as you get $10 discount on your tourGreat tour... 10 stops. The driver BOXCAR was the BEST you can ever have so funny and entertaining. The tour is a bit over 2 hours but you can hop on and off and can be a whole day thing The last bus departs at 5P from Old town or Coronado island it is $42 all worth itread more

Q How long does the tour last?

2 hrs if you don’t get off. Otherwise, make an entire day of the hop-on, hop-off tour with 10 different stops in San Diego and Coronado. You may hop on and off at any one of our convenient stops throughout the entire day. Depending on your start time, you may also use your ticket to enjoy your tour in segments by hopping off at one or two of our distinctive stops on the loop. The number of stops you can explore in one day depends on the time of year that you are touring and the amount of time you have on the day of your tour.

Q How often do trolleys come to each stop?

Our trolleys come by approximately every 15-20 minutes. Times may vary slightly due to traffic conditions and city events. Depending on demand, the time of year, day of the week, and time of day, our in-field dispatchers often put more trolleys in the tour loop at an increased frequency. We are San Diego’s most popular tour, and during peak times, we cannot guarantee that each trolley will have available seats.

Q Are food and drinks allowed while on the tour

Food and drinks are welcome. However alcoholic beverages are not allowed under any circumstance for the safety and comfort of all of our guests.
