About The San Diego Hopper Tour:

The San Diego Hopper is a flexible sightseeing bus tour that covers 9 iconic locations throughout the city of San Diego. By booking a 1 or 2-day pass you'll be able to start your journey from any of the tour's conveniently located hop-on hop-off stops. Key departure points include: Old Town San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park.

From whichever point you choose to start the Hopper Tour, travel between popular attractions such as the USS Midway Museum, Little Italy and San Diego Zoo. Buses frequent each stop every 30-60 minutes (see timetable), so if a particular location sparks your interest simply hop-off and explore at your own pace. Rejoining the tour is just as easy, all you have to do is wait on the next bus and climb aboard.

Throughout each tour helpful concierge staff will be on-hand to advise visitors on the best landmarks, dining spots and events. They will also provide informative commentary about San Diego in English. Tickets are available as either a standard 1-day 'Hopper' pass, or a 2-day 'Hopper Plus' pass, which includes free admission to San Diego's top attractions.
