Even if you’re a local in San Diego, you will be amazed at all of the new things you can learn about the city by taking a tour. This is also a fun experience for your child, and a great way for them to gain some first hand knowledge about California’s second largest city. There are two tours we recommend, which are both fun experiences for the whole family!
Old Town Trolley Tour:
For more than 20 years, Old Town Trolley Tours has been famous for providing sightseeing tours that highlight the beautiful city of San Diego. Although the Old Town Trolley is a great way to get to your destination, avoiding costly parking and city driving, it also is sort of a destination in itself. Passengers on the trolley get to experience a comprehensive tour, fully narrated by expert tour conductors. This is something the tours refers to as “Transportainment”, a delightful combination of transportation and entertainment.
While aboard the trolley, you’ll get to explore the scenic coastal landscape, and will learn why San Diego is called “America’s Finest City.” The tour has more than 100 points of interest, and 11 stops. You can start your San Diego tour at any of the stops, as trolleys arrive and depart approximately every 30 minutes at all 11 stops.
Consider getting off at the famous Seaport Village stop, which features a huge array of entertainment, shopping, and dining. From the Seaport Village, you can also take the SEAL tour, making for a day of fun and exploration throughout the city!
This tour takes you through the amazing city of San Diego…by both land AND sea! The SEAL tour is actually a boat with wheels, which takes you on a 90-minute, fully narrated tour. The tour departs from Seaport Village, at the Star of India at the Maritime Museum.
On the SEAL tour, you will wind your way through picturesque San Diego streets…then, will SPLASH down down for a cruise through the waters of San Diego Harbor! The vehicles are considered “amphibious”, and are specially designed and built to navigate on sea and land. The vehicle is driven by experienced captains, who are Coast Guard approved and meet all passenger vehicle and department of transportation requirements.
So, you and your children can sit back and relax, knowing that you are safe and in capable hands.A day riding along one of these tours will provide an interactive, educational experience for your child, that he or she will remember for a lifetime!
