Enjoy a day sightseeing aboard the Hop-On Hop-Off San Diego Trolley. Stay on the Old Town Trolley for the entire two-hour loop tour or hop off at any of the 11 stops along the route at your leisure. Then, hop back on when you’re ready and continue the tour. This tour is fully-narrated and includes stops at popular attractions like Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo.
It lasts two hours if you don’t get off. Otherwise, make an entire day of the hop-on, hop-off tour with 11 different stops in San Diego and Coronado. You may hop on and off at any of the convenient stops throughout the day. Depending on your start time, you may use your ticket to enjoy your tour in segments by hopping off at one or two of the distinctive stops on the loop. The number of stops you can explore in one day depends on the time of year you are touring and the amount of time you have on the day of your tour. Suppose you wish to stay on board your trolley and enjoy our fascinating narrative presenting an excellent overview of “America’s Finest City” without hopping on and off. In that case, the entire loop takes approximately two hours.
The Old Town Trolley Tour begins every day (except Thanksgiving and Christmas) at 9:00 am at the Old Town Depot; however, you can begin your tour at any stop. Please note: Each stop has a different starting time.
The trolleys come by approximately every 30 minutes, though times may vary slightly due to traffic conditions and city events. Depending on demand, the time of year, the day of the week, and the time of day, our in-field dispatchers often put more trolleys in the tour loop at an increased frequency. Old Town Trolley is San Diego's most popular tour, and during peak times, it is not guaranteed that each trolley will have available seats.
Please provide at least 24-hour advance notice to arrange for wheelchair accessibility. They will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities.
