Exactly what we wanted. Close to cruise terminal. Just missed trolley so had to wait 30 minutes for a trolley. Easy on and off access. Especially enjoyed Coronado Island stop.

This is a good tour to see the highlights of the central San Diego area. No worries about parking or wanting to stay a bit longer or shorter than allowed on more structured tours. I had only one day to be a tourist on a recent trip to San Diego and, never having been there before this was very helpful.

We really enjoyed the San Diego City Tour. It stopped at all the places we wanted to see. The best part was the stop in Coronado Island. We were able to visit the area, which was so convenient on the trolley. We actually took a second tour the following day to the beach areas. Beautiful tour and so much interesting information.

Wow!!! What a fun tour! Loved that we could spend as much or as little time at each of the eleven stops. We started later than planned, so only got off at the stops we really wanted to see. The narration during the rides was funny, but informative. Will definitely take the trolley tour again the next time I'm in San Diego. Highly recommend!!! Great safety announcements! LOL
