We only had a couple of days in San Diego and wanted to see as much as possible. The HOHO was the perfect solution. We were able to see many interesting areas/neighborhoods and all of our drivers/guides we very informative and entertaining. My only suggestion is to have a trolley start at each location so people like us in Little Italy do not have to wait an hour for the first trolley.

Really good. Mark the Shark was FUN and really knew his subject. Loved this tour, even though we didn't get off once.
We had Sally as our guide, she was fantastic, very friendly, lots of little jokes. Best of all was the information she gave us and the way she gave it, not yelling (like some other guides) She made the trip! thank you Sally

We had a great time on this tour, such a beautiful city & so much to see, only wish we had more time to explore all the wonderful stops. Bus connections were good with very little wait time. One of our drivers had a great sense of humour when delivering his tour talk. Coronado Island was our favourite! Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting San Diego.
