Some of the Things You’ll See on a Santa Barbara Trolley Tour

It’s no secret that Santa Barbara, California is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. But with so much to do and see, it can be impossible to experience the best of SB in just one day! That’s why we recommend taking a Santa Barbara trolley tour. Sign up for a quick 90-minute ride around town, or jump off and on all day. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy a front-row seat to the spectacular architecture, natural beauty, and interesting historical sites of the American Riviera. Here are some of our favorite tours.

Experience a Santa Barbara Trolley Tour

Daily Tours

Santa Barbara’s daily trolley tours give you the chance to travel and explore at your own pace. Just one fare takes you to a number of special spots throughout the city, including Stearns Wharf, East Beach, the Museum of Natural History, and more. You can even stop off for a few hours and catch the next trolley that comes along. Tours begin at the Visitor Center and are held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Wine Tours

If you’re traveling with a wine lover, sign up for a sightseeing tour of the picturesque Santa Ynez Valley. This region boasts over 50 wineries and has a reputation as one of the world’s premier wine appellations. Instead of worrying about driving, ride the Santa Barbara Trolley to a few of your favorite tasting rooms. Not sure where to start? Check out our wine tasting blog.

Private Charters

Perfect for birthdays, work parties, bachelorette celebrations, and more, a private tour will leave you with lasting memories. Charters are available anytime and can take you anywhere in style. Each party trolley includes a state-of-the-art sound system, dance floor, party lights, and seating for up to 35 passengers. Call (805) 965-0353 for details.

Holiday Excursions

Kick off the holiday season on the Santa Barbara Trolley of Lights! A local favorite, this 90-minute trip showcases some of the most amazing holiday light displays around town. You may even see a few Santas! Tours begin at 6:30 p.m. sharp from the Visitor’s Center and often sell out, so be sure to purchase your tickets in advance.

Note: In the spirit of giving, trolley riders can donate cans of food for a chance to win prizes. You’ll receive a raffle ticket for every two cans you donate. Happy holidays!
