We loved the Trolley Tours....all the highlights of the city were picked and we could choose to stay as
long as we wanted on the special stops we wanted. The drivers were all excellent and very
entertaining. It saved me time trying to decide where to go and what to see.

Easy way to see the city. We normally like to do the whole tour without getting off to get to know the city and also to check the places we would like to go back. Our driver was funny and gave us a lot of information we didn't know about. We highly recommend this tour.

We had the pleasure of being driven by two experienced and knowledgeable drivers. Unfortunately, I don't remember the 1st driver's name female. She gave a lot of information and was a safe driver. The second driver, Milo, was the above and more....he added some of his personal experiences and made a few jokes. He engaged the passengers. The locations on the tour are excellent. I recommend the two day two. Balboa Park alone will take the whole day...

This is a fun and pleasant way to get around, see San Diego's various charming areas, and learn a little history. Highly recommend this trolley tour. Natives were confused between this trolley and the red electric trollies, so finding the correct ticket booth and starting point was a bit of a hassle. But once in the correct place, and on our tour, everyone in our group had a great time. We even sang along to the songs appropriately played by the driver!

We were unable to take the trolley trip because of the high heat that day, both of us being in advanced age. We hop to be able to take the trip in the fall.--Michael P. Graves
