While you're in port, discover San Diego at your own pace with a one-day ticket on the San Diego Hop-on Hop-off Trolley Tour. This do-it-yourself shore excursion allows you to create your own itinerary so you can see the popular sights of San Diego at your own pace - simply hop off at any stop and hop back on the trolley when you're ready!

The San Diego Hop-on Hop-off Trolley is a wonderful way to see the San Diego sights you want to see when you want to see them. This shore excursion allows you flexibility to make the most of your time in port. Board the trolley at the cruise ship terminal and ride it until you're ready to hop off at any of the other 10 stops.

One of the most popular stops is Old Town, where early California history comes to life; Old Town is often called the "Birthplace of California," as it's where California's first European settlers made their home. Another popular stop is Coronado, where you can explore the famous, and haunted, Hotel del Coronado.

Trolley stops are conveniently located close to all popular attractions, shops and restaurants. Trolleys depart every 30 minutes.

Unfortunately due to out cruise ship change of itinerary we did not make it to San Diego. I did send two emails to Viator informing them of the change but to date have not had any acknowledgement that these were received. Emails were sent on 3rd and 9th of August.
Looking forward to a reply regarding this lack of communication.

Great tour...we spent the whole morning riding around San Diego....we saw all the highlights...and enjoyed the freedom to get off where we wanted. Some Trolley tours only allow you to make one pass period..this tour you can revisit anyplace you like during the day. The bus drivers did a good job pointing our places of interest...a great way to spend your first morning/day in San Diego.
