For some history about the San Diego area, this is a great tour. The stops are convenient and it goes to Coronado island! The drivers are always so helpful and nice! I recommend this tour for first timers to the city!

We opted to hop on the Trolley to give us a good feel for the offerings of San Diego. The Hop-on-Hop-off concept is really popular and a great way to get a commentary of the city, when time is limited. You can choose to get off at different locations and most of the time these tours, go to most of the best tourist attractions. This trip is no different to similar tours elsewhere. The drivers were enthusiastic and friendly and proud of their city San Diego...

My husband and I did the one-day hop-on-and-off tour. It allows you to see Old Town, the Embarcadero, Balboa Park, Little Italy, Coronado and other parts of San Diego. The tour is narrated, and each driver was informative and funny. This time we enjoyed the Coronado Historical Museum and the Veterans Museum in Balboa Park. The convenience of being able to hop on and off the trolleys, which run about every 30 minutes, eliminated the hassle of moving our car and searching for parking places when we wanted to go somewhere else. Your admission includes discount coupons for several restaurants and other businesses near the stops. We had lunch in Coronado at an Irish pub right next to the trolley stop. Yummy! You can't do justice to all the stops in just one day. We'd do this again to focus on some of the other museums. Well worth the money!

We enjoy these tours. We take our out of town visitors on these tours. The concept is off and on so it is an easy way to get around the city. On holidays it is busy so if you can avoid those days it is a very pleasant experience. The guides are knowledgeable and humorous.... On holiday weekends the lines can be very long at the on and off spots. There are several options but the favorite is the tour that goes through the City and over to Coronado.

We knew seeing the sights of San Diego was going to be good but Alex made it amazing. The interaction with the passengers was hilarious
