California Road Trip with American Sky – Santa Barbara
“With a short stay of just 2 nights available I can recommend taking the pretty Trolley Bus tour for an informative ride that showcases the charms of the Santa Barbara area. A 90-minute ride on one of the iconic trolley buses will give you your bearings and the driver/guide always has some great stories to tell. You can hop on or off along the way, or just stay on board for the full tour.”

Santa Barbara Trolley named one of the top things to do in SB!
“Santa Barbara was our first stop during our three week tour of California/Nevada. We didn’t know much about the town so took this tour as the trolley was at its pickup location near Stearns Wharf. We learnt and saw more of Santa Barbara taking this tour than we could have in the same time by ourselves.”
90 minute tours run Thursday to Monday from the Visitor Center located at 1 Garden Street at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm.
