San Diego sparkles at night what better way to see it than with Old Town Trolley Tours! With the help of our expert guides, you’ll take in romantic views of the city and drive past notable landmarks, experiencing them like you never have before.

See San Diego in a different light.

This 1 hour and 30 minute journey starts off by exploring the West Coast’s premier entertainment district known as the Gaslamp Quarter. Famed for its vibrant nightlife, bright lights and Victorian architecture, it will captivate your imagination of what makes this urban playground unforgettable. We’ll then make our way to Balboa Park, the largest urban cultural park in the US where it’s transformed at night by stunning buildings, fountains, and statues glowing bright that are equally as remarkable in the evening as they are during the day.

From Balboa Park we’ll drive to the top of Coronado Bridge for more spectacular sights including the lights coming in from Tijuana, Mexico, the bay and downtown San Diego. We’ll then travel to Coronado’s Ferry Landing for a 20-minute stop to take in the stunning beauty of the San Diego city skyline visible from across the bay and a perfect photo-op location.

From Coronado, we make our way to the Embarcadero’s bayfront views. You’ll see the Historic County Administration Building, Maritime Museum’s Star of India, the USS Midway Museum, Seaport Village Headquarters, and we’ll also see the Navy’s aircraft carriers from across the bay.

Special wine discount at the Top of the Hyatt:
50% off wine has returned to the Night Tour. Limit two drinks. Night Tour guests please provide tour sticker or proof of tour ticket.

And with that, you’ll have experienced America’s Finest City in another light, something you won’t forget.
