The key to San Diego
Jun. 2021 • Family
This is the best way to know and enjoy all the great places that San Diego offers a tourist. The guides are knowledgeable of the area. Our ride with Capt. Bob was very exciting. Mr Mark went beyond and above to endure that we got back to the hotel when we missed the last bus from Old Town.

Good time
Jun. 2021
This tour allowed us to see many things and one day. It was better than a simple one hour tour because we're able to get on and off of the bus. We were also able to do shopping and the drivers did a great job of narrating the sights of the city

Great time in San Diego
This was much more fun than I expected. Each of our drivers were knowledgeable of each area we visited and kept the atmosphere fun and lighthearted. We especially enjoyed Debbie and Scooter! Both have great personalities and answered any questions we had. We talked the next day about plans to return to San Diego to do this tour again in the future. Four thumbs, between the two of us, up!!

Apr. 2021
Thanks to Howie aka G Pop! You could tell he enjoyed his job and entertaining people. He did a wonderful job of sharing stories (some of them about his dad coming ashore after extended Navy tours) We got a great feel for SD and the area. Always nice to get connected to the places you visit, and Howie did that very well. Thanks! and congrats on the g babies!

Fantastic way to spend a day
Mar. 2021
This was a fun way for our family of four to see the various parts of town. While we didn't hop off at every stop, we saw several spots that we will want to visit whenever we return to San Diego. As other reviewers have shared, the drivers are all friendly and narrate the trip with a nice mix of historical facts and corny jokes. During COVID, capacity in the trolley is limited. So if you have a very large party (e.g., multiple families together), you may need to be patient and divide your crew into different trolleys.

Great way to see San Diego highlights. We took the tour on day 1 and then knew where we wanted to go back and visit throughout our stay. Drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely do this again.
