CAST of Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego Become Land’s End Business Outfitter Models!

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Old Town Trolley Tours of San Diego was honored to participate in a Lands’ End Business Outfitters photo-shoot for their catalog and website. We were all very excited and showed up bright and early to be future stars!  A Lands End team of make-up artists, costume tailors, and photographers were prepared as soon as we arrived. We spent a couple hours getting made-up to feel like celebrities! Once we were fitted into the uniforms, we were driven out to different locations to do the photo-shoot. Balboa Park and Shelter Island were a couple of the locations. “Move your arm this way, shift your head that way!” The photographers did their best to take quality pictures for the catalog. After it was all said and done, the pictures were perfect! Nikki, our Sales Rep, was part of a collage for the cover of the catalog. Other Leadagers and CASTmembers were featured either in the catalog or on their website. Rod LaBranche and Tyler Grubenhoff can be seen being interviewed for the promotional video. Thank you Lands’ End for giving us an opportunity to shine in your photos!

Love those dogs!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

We had a great time this past weekend in St. Augustine with our good friends at Patriot Service Dogs. We got to meet our two Old Town Trolley sponsored puppies, Dudley, a black Labrador retriever and Diego a golden retriever. They got to do meet and greets with out guests and take a tour or two! After their training is complete Dudley and Diego will make fabulous service companions for a wounded veteran returning from war.

Patriot Service Dogs

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

It’s that time a year again when we team up with Patriot Service Dogs, a wonderful group based out of Jacksonville, FL, that provides assistance dogs to returning war veterans. Last year Old Town Trolley Tours raised enough money to sponsor two adorable and smart puppies, Diego, a golden retriever and Dudley at Labrador retriever. We are excited to be hosting both of these dogs, with their handlers at Old Town Trolley Tours of St. Augustine on Veteran’s Day. In addition we will have another Patriot Service Dog, Legion, a golden retriever, at Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston on Sunday. All of the dogs will do meet and greets and take tours!

We will again be donating $1 for every ticket purchased to Patriot Service Dogs so they can continue doing the great work that they do. We hope to see everyone out on the trolley tomorrow!
