This San Diego hop-on hop-off trolley tour provides an easy and affordable way to get around the city. This tour helps you avoid the hassle of finding and paying for parking.

Enjoy the ride on this vintage transport method, offering comprehensive access to some of San Diego’s best attractions.
Among the stops is Old Town State Historic Park, often called the “Jamestown of the Pacific,” where you can discover the history of California’s founding amidst the area’s range of 19th-century buildings.
There are also stops for the world-famous San Diego Zoo, which covers 100 acres and houses more than 3,700 rare and endangered animals, the USS Midway, and the historic Gaslamp Quarter.
The tour ends at the stop you choose or when the trolley shuts down for the night.
