Full description

Get into the Christmas spirit on this holiday lights and sights trolley tour in San Diego. Ride a wave of holiday cheer as you celebrate in the sights, songs, and traditions of the holiday season alongside elf conductors in “America’s Finest City.”

Join in sing-along caroling with elf conductors as they share fun holiday facts and traditions. See the festive holiday lights of Old Town, Embarcadero, Seaport Village, Balboa Park, and more. Enjoy a 15-minute stop at Seaport Village for even more holiday fun.

When it comes to living that laid-back West Coast lifestyle, San Diegans do it better than most. Whether it’s sunbathing with the seals in La Jolla or seeking out the hottest regional Mexican food, easy and breezy is the order of the day.
