The driver was friendly, I think that his name was Rodney. Only used it once one way but it allowed us to see the main sites in the Gaslamp District and become familiar with the area. Sites of interest included the Electric Fountain, the Marriott (which is great for picture taking in their garden), the Cordonado area( where we got... More

We did a one day tour but you can do a two day tour as well. If you want to see different areas of San Deigo we think this is a good tour to see the different areas of SanDiego and get the history as well.

Great way to see San Diego, getting on and off at-will to see specific areas in detail whenever you like. My wife and I bought tickets online (at a small discount over the street price) then got on at Old Town at 09:30. There's a large free parking lot right across the street from the Trolley stop, so very convenient.... More

We stopped at balboa park, coronado , old town, little Italy, etc you... More

The trolley itself is great. Takes you all around San Diego points of interest for 35.00 (I got a 5$ off on the actually trolley website bought online). That part (buying ticket on my phone) was easy and streamlined as it was a last minute decision. The guide was not great and I should have gotten off and on with... More

Our guide may or may not be the norm, but was very informed and very chatty. Going to Coronado was my favorite part of the tour.

Most tourists sign up for these tours and get a great taste of several areas of San Diego - but... if you live here you can get a discount (pay for 1 get 1 free)! A girlfriend and I took the tour last summer from Old Town, through downtown, to Seaport Village over to Coronado, then to Little Italy and... More
