As a local S. D. resident (& chauffeur), I am happy to heartily recommend the Old Town Trolley Tours as the most comprehensive way to see S. D. at an excellent price. Unlike a bus tour, everyone is on their own, deciding whether or not to spend some time at the 10 different locations on the route & how much time they want to stay. The trolleys pick up at many local hotels, as well as in Old Town. The guides are all entertaining with humorous stories & facts.
My husband and I stayed at the Del Coronado for our last vacation. The trolley is a perfect way to see the sights in San Diego. It goes to many of the typical attractions like the zoo and marina. The tour guides are very helpful and the trolley pick-ups times are very reliable. I wish the trolley ran a little later so we could have dined in the gaslamp area, but I think it otherwise is the perfect way to get around. I would recommend this to anyone!!!
The Old Town Trolley is a great way to see San Diego and Coronado Island. It's a two hour tour stopping at the Zoo, Balboa Park, Old Town, Gas Light District, Seaport Village, Harbor, Hotel Del Coronado, etc.
You may exit the trolley at any stop and catch the next trolley on 30 minute intervals at your convience OR you may just stay on the trolley for the entire two hour tour. It's up to you. It's a hassle free, informative and affordable way to learn your way around the area. Next day you can spend time at your favorite place(s).
The trolley returns you to the point it picked you up at where you must exit. You can only make one complete route tour for your one ticket. Both Craig and Nick were great trolley drivers.
