“Seal Tour w/o seals”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My wife said she enjoyed this tour, so we went. Everything was fine until the boat/truck wouldn't steer right and we were on the water for an extra hour. Also, they've moved the seals platform, so we only saw 1 seal on a buoy, but still had fun.....

“Great activity for the entire family”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We went on this tour and had a great time! Walt and Capt. Jim were great! We loved the narration and information/humor given throughout the tour. My 10 year old son even paid attention and went home to tell other family members about the history/facts he learned on the tour. The ticket staff were very helpful. I only wish we would of had more time in the area because the trolley tour sounds like fun also. Next time we are in the area we will make time to take both tours!

“TROLLEY TOUR GIVES YOU A LIFT!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

My friend and I booked this tour while on my first visit to San Diego. We also then persuaded her elderly aunt (90 years young) and cousin to join us as the steps up to the trolley bus were not a problem. This is a great, fun way to see the area and I would recommend you set aside at least three hours so you can hop off and on at some of the stops that catch your eye eg. The Hotel Coronado. The drivers are knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun and going over the Coronado bridge was one of the highlights of the tour for me. I don't want to give anything away but the title of this review refers to the bridge...loved it.
