I’m from San Diego. I love living here for the food, the weather, and its proximity to the ocean, desert, and mountains. I enjoy skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding, kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, camping, and anything else outdoors! Fun Fact: I know how to ride a unicycle.
I was born in Boulder, Colorado. I’m a navy brat and grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I relocated to San Diego in 1994 for my spouse’s naval career and I’ve been here ever since. I have an MFA in theatre and although I love to perform, my passion is costume design and construction. I have recently become very interested in the history of textiles and historic clothing construction. I have three small dogs and two adult children. I love that San Diego has a very diverse cultural scene which includes all the arts and fabulous museums in a beautiful setting.
Hi there! My name is Bob. Wow! It’s such a great feeling to be part of the wonderful family here at Old Town Trolley Tours. I grew up in a Navy family. I found home on my seventh and final move here in San Diego. In 1985, I joined Invader Cruises, and I captained yachts for Hornblower for 10+ years. Now, after a brief sprint to Catalina Classic Cruises, I have once again found a home here at Historic Tours of America.
Originally from Racine, Wisconsin, I have now lived in San Diego for over 25 years! I enjoy living here because of the mountains, neighborhoods, and the close proximity to Mexico. When I’m not at work I’m a dog-dad, love horticulture, and cooking!
Living in San Diego and Imperial Beach since 1970. I’m grateful to God to be driving as a tour conductor in my beautiful, amazing city. There’s no place like home – the best is before us!
When I am not playing dress-up or uncovering the Earth, I’m working on my tan. Sometimes I watch sports. Other times I watch movies. Rarely do I read, which is something I used to enjoy immensely. Nowadays I’m limited to reading Nietzsche, Poe, Hemingway, and microwave cooking instructions. I will stray, now-and-then, from nuking my fare, and scow-cook a brisket or a tantalizing rib-roast.
I am a native Californian who was introduced to San Diego by my two high school Oceanography teachers, and I have loved the city ever since. I got my degree from UCSD and flew sailplanes along the cliffs of Torrey Pines. I am also an animal fanatic and grew up as a crazy horse kid (fortunately, I had crazy horse parents). Through an assortment of really magnificent creatures, I have learned great patience with my 2 dogs, and my 25+ rabbits, fish, and birds (careful, my rabbit population just went up)! Speaking of population, San Diego sure has grown since I first came here. I like to share the wonderful bits and pieces of San Diego history with visitors. Here’s to hoping I learn even more and share this with thousands of visitors as an OTT Conductor.
I was born and raised in San Diego, but left when I was 18 to join the US Army, where I served as a Huey Crew Chief. I left the Army after seven years and returned to San Diego with my son. I have worked in sales, and as a District Manager. This city is great for its beaches and weather, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
I’m originally from the quiet town of Las Vegas. I have real interest in history, especially since I have a degree in History.

Originally from San Diego, I’m an artist, guitarist, and I love to play tabletop games. What I enjoy most about living in San Diego is the weather, food, beaches, and the music / art scene.
As a third generation San Diegan, I grew up riding the streets of Pacific Beach during a time when a young boy’s mind could run wild. As long as I was home before the streetlights came on, all was good. I married my high school sweetheart; after five kids and a new granddaughter (Sybil Rae), it was the best decision I’ve ever made. We have lived in La Mesa for over 30 years and are quite happy to call it “home.” Before joining Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego, I spent several decades in the Automotive Repair industry including 15 years with Snap-on Tools. I look forward to honing my sit-down comedian chops while entertaining our guests!
I moved to Southern California from Washington, D.C., and I am relishing the sun and hospitality of the region. I’ve worked in customer service most of my life and I enjoy meeting people from all over the globe. I’m thrilled to be part of the SEAL team and look forward to spending time on the water!! Finally, Go HEELS!!
Hi! I was born near Mystic, Connecticut and I enjoyed country-living near the ocean. Out of school, I began marketing for the new casino in town (Foxwoods) and after watching that industry boom, I moved to New York City to manage a production office in SoHo. The need for big skies and the ocean brought me to the West Coast, where I came to San Diego and started a Landscape Design business. I’ve worked my body into the ground, so now I get to drive people around town and show them this beautiful city.
I was born & raised in Southern Brazil. Hey man, if I am out there, I always bring a grill, chicken wings, and ribs (beef & pork).

I also like bike riding around the neighborhoods in San Diego.
I am from Laramie, Wyoming, and I have a degree in Cinematography. I moved to San Diego in 2018 and currently live with my girlfriend in La Mesa. I love the weather and the beaches of San Diego, and I am a huge Sci-Fi and gaming nerd.
I grew up about two hours north of San Diego, but spent many weekends here. I’ve been privileged enough to have lived in several states, but quickly learned that I have a strong allergy to shoveling snow, so right back to Southern California I came. I like to spend as much time as I can with my two daughters. I also love being outdoors, whether it’s the beaches, mountains, giant trees, or all of the above.
Originally from Maryland, but I have lived in San Diego for 62 years. When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading the Bible, square dancing, and listening to music. I was even in a Rock-N-Roll band for 9 years. Go Aztecs!

As a native Californian, I was born in Atascadero, CA and moved to Portero, East County San Diego in 1960, and then to Jamul a year later. In 1966, we moved to Casa de Oro, Spring Valley where I currently reside. I attended local Catholic and public schools and graduated from Monte Vista High after three years. I immediately began to work as a seasonal Firefighter with the California Division of Forestry (now known as Cal Fire) for two seasons working as a laborer in construction in the off-season. I attended Grossmont, Sierra Community Colleges, and Pacific States University studying Geology, Marine Biology, Astronomy, Fire Sciences, Communication, Chemistry, and Human Biology. I attended Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles from 1976 through 1979 continuously, earning a four-year Doctor of Chiropractic degree in three years.

Hi, my name is Milo. I am an avid swimmer & surfer. I am married, and I have a son and daughter in college. I retired after 26 years at the San Diego Fire Dept. Yes, that’s my 1956 Ford F-100 in the parking lot.
Born and raised in Berwyn, IL just outside Chicago but moved mercifully to San Diego right out of high school. Along with raising a family, I took voice lessons and did some professional singing along the way. The hospitality and tourism industry seemed a perfect fit for me and I became a concierge with the hotel Del Coronado where I promoted OTT everyday! After numerous other hospitality jobs I really enjoy being the quintessential San Diego Tour Guide so here I am starting a new adventure with the OTT as a Tour Conductor.
As a Native San Diegan, I grew up here with great memories of close family, life, and great friendships! I’m married to my best friend, Kristine, and we have two adult sons.

From San Diego. I love sunsets, lights on the water at night, and watching dolphins in the waves. I am a singer – I’ve worked with the San Diego Symphony and even been in a few dinner shows at SeaWorld! In my spare time I enjoy spending quality time with my family.
I have been in San Diego since ’63 when my family was transferred from Hawaii while my dad was in the United States Navy. I attended Coronado High and when I graduated, Pacific Bell hired me to work in El Centro. For the next 27 years I was able to work in San Diego and Imperial Counties and occasionally Northern California. After I retired (and even before), San Diego has been my favorite vacation spot. I traveled to BVI and Hawaii and still prefer San Diego and like to tour here.
Having been raised in this amazing place, I have an infinite passion for this city, and the village of Coronado, where I was born. I am one of the rare natives. I am excited to have the opportunity to tell both visitors and residents about our town, its history, and activities. I have been involved with that very thing for some time having been a volunteer for the Coronado Visitor Center and a docent for the Hotel del Coronado for many years. Some of my other passions include playing golf, lawn bowling, snow skiing, and playing with my wonderful little dog, Jersey-Girl. I look forward to seeing you on my Old Town Trolley Tour.
