Full description
Explore the history of Canada's first capital aboard a comfortable thirty-two passenger trolley. The Trolley is the ideal way to enjoy Kingston’s history and attractions. The GPS-triggered narration system in English, French, German and Chinese will complement your experienced English-speaking tour guide; together they provide an informative, engaging overview of Kingston’s more than three hundred years of history.

The trolley route covers all of Kingston’s historic old town and downtown shopping district, including Fort Henry, the Penitentiary Museum, and Queen’s University. You can hop off at any stop, stay for as long as you like, then hop back on and continue your tour. Trolleys follow a figure-8 route that divides the route into two halves: you can begin with the east half of the tour, hop off at the Market Square stop to get lunch or take a cruise, then continue with the West half of the tour.
