The Old Town trolley travels through out San Diego and over to Coronado beach, if you stay on for the whole ride it takes about 2 hours. You can get on and off when every you like and another one usually arrives every 30 minutes. The driver did give me a time table so it did help when I got... More

When visiting San Diego start with the trolley tour, it's worth doing it allows you to get your bearings and see all the main attractions. The drivers are very informative with regards the history surrounding San Diego and also give you lots of tips.

We did not use the tour but know the old town trolley goes to all attractions except San Diego safari park and legoland . If you would like to save on parking use the trolley will save a lot on transportation and parking . Book for the trolley through city pass .

This is a good way to see the city. The drivers were hit and miss. The first one was not very animated, but the second one was better. Good overview of the city.

We had no plan, showed up at the Wydham hotel, the next morning talked to the concierge. She sold us tickets for the Trolley and off we went. It gives you a cheap overview of everything to do in such a small circle. You can easily spend the whole day getting on and off the trolley to see stuff. And... More

I've done both the haunted tour and the standard trolley tour, they are both great. I've lived in San Diego since 1989 and I thought I knew a thing or two about San Diego's history. However, I quickly realized on both tours I didn't know squat. The information is delivered in a fun and entertaining way. If you have interest... More

We were visiting California from the UK and only in San Diego for 2 days, so we wanted to see as much as we could in the little time we had available. Old Town Trolley Tours is the best way to see the city in relaxed comfort. The trolley took us through the Embarcadero, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza, the Gaslamp... More

Larry was our driver/guide and he did a great job. He's informative, entertaining, and professional. Could do this again, but for sure would enjoy spending time in Balboa Park! Loved the view from the Coronado Bay Bridge.
