The tour comes in at just under two hours if you don’t get off. Otherwise, make an entire day of the hop-on, hop-off tour with 12 different stops in San Diego and Coronado. You may hop on and off at any one of our convenient stops throughout the entire day. Depending on your start time, you may also use your ticket to enjoy your tour in segments by hopping off at one or two of our distinctive stops on the loop. The number of stops you can explore in one day depends on the time of year that you are touring and the amount of time you have on the day of your tour.

Our trolleys come by approximately every 15-20 minutes. Times may vary slightly due to traffic conditions and city events. Depending on demand, the time of year, day of the week, and time of day, our in-field dispatchers often put more trolleys in the tour loop at an increased frequency. We are San Diego’s most popular tour, and during peak times, we cannot guarantee that each trolley will have available seats.
