It was a quite convenient means to see the town. it was informative and friendly for the most part. the price wasn't excessive but still seemed a bit high for the amount of use by individual riders. There was a female driver that saw us coming toward the trolley to board and she pulled away. as she drove past she yelled out that another trolley was right behind her. 15 minutes later the other trolley arrived. so instead of waiting what would've been less that a minute for us to board cost us an additional 15 min wait. Not great customer service!!!

It was great as always. My daughter and I go every year for our birthdays. We booked an inn right by a trolley stop. The trolley is the best way to get to so many great places. Will be using it again next year.

This tour was awesome and very informative. i wish i would’ve scheduled it sooner in our trip because our tour guide told us so many cool places to check out. highly recommend

Boat cruise was fun. Land tour was informative. Tour guide was great.

Great 👍 I enjoy every story about all places we went
