The price is no different than buying at the park and you will have to wait much longer in the "guest services" line. No line at all at the traditional line kiosks at the park but they will not accept the prepaid tickets there.

This about 2 hour tour with on/off stops is a great way to see the main sights of San Diego. We did a 2 day pass with the zoo pass. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly.
