Based on our great experience with the Hop-on Hop-off Trolley in the day, we took the City Lights Tour. It was great and included Coronado Island, around the USS Midway and San Diego communities. Driver Tim explained things well and is professional, courteous and friendly with a great sense of humor. We highly recommend this tour.

iPhone maps will lead you to the WRONG location!!!!

The tour was awesome! Beautiful. The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. Definitely worth the money. It’s a great way to get feel for the city and it’s history. I loved that we got to take a stop at Coronado Island. IF YOU HAVE AN iPHONE - YOUR MAP WILL LEAD YOU TO THE WRONG LOCATION!!! It will actually take you in the opposite direction you are supposed to go. And when I called their help number, no one answered. Thankfully we made it right on time, and the tour guide made an exception for us. The meeting place is in Seaport Village. Head toward Agora Galleries, Harbour House, Cheesecake Factory, and Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel.
