    Great way to get an overview of the city and explore it with ease. The guides varied in their entertainment rating - there was a female guide who didn't seem to know much about the city & wasn't very enthusiastic. (She may not have been a morning person!) But the 3-4 male guides we had later in the day were great! Willing to give us info on which stops to use to reach lesser-known landmarks. All stops but one had a quick pickup. It was nice that different guides didn't repeat the exact same stories.

    We had the BEST time on the tour with our guide, Hercules. He was informative, funny and wicked Smaht! We laughed all day because of him. We got off the bus when he had to take a lunch break but we got him back later in the day. He’s a treasure and made the tour a blast.

    I'm not sure why this trolley is so much harder to find, I had started to book the History Trolley tour when this one came up in my recommendations. It was about 20 dollars less for my family and I am SO incredibly glad we booked this one over the History Trolley. If you are looking for a more Covid friendly option, this tour was by and large the way to go. We passed other trolleys several times and every time they were crammed to max capacity. This trolley has seats that only fit two people and at least during the summer that means half the occupants are sitting next to open windows. I will say at the Aquarium entrance there was a bit of a line, but it didn't take long to catch a mostly empty one. Second, the fact that this trolley only has 9 stops means it comes by far more frequently and if you are planning on getting to multiple places throughout the day then its far more convenient. Thank you for a wonderful time! Next time we're in town we'll be choosing this tour again.
