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 business be open and would there be anything to do considering this Covid situation. He said yes, lots of the businesses were now open.This is far from the truth.I spent almost $100 on tickets for 2.You can go to Coranado Beach and eat off a food truck (that's their restraunt right now), there are lots of restaunts open if you want to eat outside on this very hot humid day and 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 day. He didn't feel it was that big of a deal.I drove my car 2 hours on my only day off in weeks 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
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.
QHow 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.
QAre 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.
