This was a great way to see lots of San Diego in a short time. We saw places we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Nice to get off and on and see then get back on. Next time we'll do the 2 day pass.

The Old Town trolley is a great way to navigate San Diego. The guides are terrific at providing information along the tour. The tour itself covers a great distance (from Coronado to Downtown/Gaslamp to Old Town). If you are looking for an overview this is...More

A day pass for the Old Town Trolley to hop on and off is a great way to see many sites in a day. At $35 it's not cheap, but parking in multiple spots will run the same without needing to drive around looking for...More

I think if you start at 1pm today is good till 1pm tomorrow. They only check tickets at the first station, so in theory you could use it longer than you paid for if you only go between stations and don't do a full tour (say... More
