San Diego has gained the reputation of being the United State’s finest city and this is all for good reason. Not only does it boast of a stunning natural beauty found in few cities across America, but it also has a rich history and culture that is highly evident in the wide array of museums, religious landmarks, arts centers, and performance venues found in the city. All these features give a great balance of entertainment and seriousness to San Diego that is probably the reason why a lot of visitors flock the area. And what better way to tour the city than on San Diego’s Old Town Trolley.

The Old Town Trolley has been host to a lot of visitors for over 20 years now, giving them sightseeing tours of the city highlighting special points of interest. The tour usually runs for 90 minutes and visits places such as the Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town State Park, Hotel Del Coronado, and Whaley House among many of the other renowned and favourite San Diego visitor spots. Adults and children may both take part in the tours making it a good activity for families as well as groups of friends.

The tour is conducted by locals who have years of experience and are very knowledgeable on the city’s history as well as the current trends. Visitors get to savor the wonderful views of the bay side area as they zip through the city aboard the trolley. Also a plus is that they get to experience the places themselves because they are allowed to get off the trolley from time to time and visit shops and places of interest. A particular favourite is the stop at Balboa Park where visitors on board the Trolley can visit the San Diego Zoo and other attractions in the area.
