Want to give your feet a rest, skip the driving, and bypass the bus? What's left is a bunch of uncommon, and uncommonly good, means for seeing San Diego that will give you great views, plus an experience you will never forget.
Jump into a topless, miniature, 3-wheel GoCar and enjoy a GPS-guided, custom-narrated audio tour of all the best sites that San Diego has to offer. Stop when and where you want while touring the Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Little Italy or Point Loma. Maximize the experience by taking a 2020 Vanderhall Blackjack up to the Cuyamaca mountains and the town of Julian, or combine your GoCar excursion with a Speedboat tour on San Diego Bay.
Another fun way to travel to the main tourist areas of San Diego is on an Old Town Trolley Tour. The Trolley stops at 11 places including Old Town, Seaport Village, Gaslamp Quarter, Coronado, Little Italy and Balboa Park. You can either ride on the full two-hour narrated historic tour, or hop on and off at different stops throughout the day. They also offer and combination options with their land-and-water SEAL Tours.
If the standard seafaring fare doesn't excite you, take a spin on the SEAL Tour, a 90-minute, fully-narrated, amphibious land and sea tour, embarking from Seaport Village in the Embarcadero district. After winding its way through downtown San Diego, your vehicle glides into the water for a cruise around San Diego Bay.
Use the power of your legs to see the sights throughout San Diego County. Rent a bike or reserve your spot on a bike tour of San Diego's hottest destinations.
Road bikes, with or without an electric assist, can take you through the heart of downtown, along the bay front Embarcadero, around Mission Bay, along the Silver Stand and Coronado, or take "Plunge" trip that starts at the top of Mt. Soledad with breathtaking 360-degree views of the region before heading downhill to La Jolla to the north or Pacific Beach to the south.
Give your weary feet a rest and let someone else do the pedaling with a pedicab ride along the downtown waterfront or in the Gaslamp Quarter. They are available for tours as well as transport, and add an additional layer of fun to sightseeing.
Cruise around Coronado in style in a 2- or 4-person surrey bike that's fun to pedal for the whole family.
Hop on a Segway and zoom around Downtown, Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Coronado or La Jolla on a guided tour of San Diego's must-see sights. Learning to ride takes just minutes.
Easier to ride than a bicycle and combining aquatic fun with fitness, a hydrobike is an excellent way to explore San Diego Bay and Mission Bay and get a water’s-eye view of the shoreline and abundant marine life around you.
Experience San Diego from above with a helicopter tour over area beaches, bays and landmarks from La Jolla to downtown. Or get a beautiful bird's-eye view of Coronado Island and an aerial tour around San Diego Harbor in a seaplane.
