Happy Birthday to the Girl Scouts. Founded on this day back in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, GA, Girls Scouts are the largest girl-serving organization in the United States, with over 2.5 million members. The Scouts single largest fundraiser is the sale of their world famous cookies, which ends on March 14. Each year they sell over 200 million boxes. That's a lot of Thin Mints. Of course we are kind partial to Samoas. What's your favorite?

Can i pay for the tour at the balboa stop?
Thought you might enjoy this post about the Rose Garden. No clickbait. This a labor of love to spread the joy of Balboa Park. https://southparksdblogger.com/2020/05/22/balboa-park-in- bloom-stop-and-smell-the-roses/
Trusted Trolleys will not grant refunds when they are not operating (March 24, 2020). Living in NH this was a one time trip for a family of six. We will never be able to return, what a ripoff to tourist.
Trolleys are supposed to run every 20 minutes or so. When a full trolly arrives no one can board. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
Done!
I hope all is well. As you may know, we have been distributing, POP marketing display brochures, Cards and Posters to businesses across the U.S. for non-profit associations and companies for over 30 years. We cover the geographic area you so desire based on your marketing needs. It is charged per site. There are no extra costs and we supply a delivery manifest of the places delivered to. We deliver to the most user friendly and high traffic businesses in the areas you most desire. I would be happy to answer any further questions and to provide you with a proposal, with pricing, for your review. I hope we can be of assistance. Best, Justine.
I paid for tickets and then when calling for hours and help for where to find the trolley was told by a man it wouldn't be worth it for what we wanted to do. I felt defeated and frustrated that I had spent so much money on these tickets. I emailed and never got a response. Then I called. I talked with a VERY rude girl about how I wanted a refund and she said, well you probably won't get one because most people don't and said she'd send me the refund request form. I did not receive a form. I had to call back and spoke to someone else who sent me the form. I get to the form and it's telling me that my order number is in an incorrect format. I do not want to call back customer service because they were not helpful and were rude.
Best deal in town!
Do to a mid-afternoon arrival at the airport, what is the latest afternoon start from STOP B can we get on the tour just to ride the trolley all through the route and end again at STOP B? We will not be getting off at any other stop, but staying on for a round trip ride.
looking forward to taking a tour soon!!!!
Had a great time today on the Old Town Trolley Tour celebrating my birthday with my girlfriends......thanks to the great staff especially Kris from Dorchester, MA
My wife took her final ride on your San Diego Old Town Trolley. Thank you for a wonderful ride. You helped me honor her final dying wish, which was to scatter her ashes, out to sea, in her home town of San Diego. We visited Old Town, Coronado and her final resting place; the Kissing Statue along the waterfront. She passed away on the Atlantic Ocean in Florida and her final ride was on the Old Town Trolley before she arrived to her final resting place in the Pacific Ocean in San Diego. Blessings to you for a memorable time.
