This trolley ride is a good way to kill some time. The conductors are super friendly and knowledgeable. They give you an oral tour while you ride. It isn't honestly the prettiest ride and is very short (about 25 min round trip), but the commentary...More

If you're downtown and thinking about visiting the Denver Aquarium or the Denver Children's Museum, or Mile High Stadium, this is a GREAT way to get there and back. Even if you're not, it's a short, fun, inexpensive trip. You'll learn a bit about Denver...More

You see little of significance except Mile High Stadium. Although it goes past and stops at the Aquarium so nice if you're visiting there. The young children love the ride. However, it's a waste of $5.00 for an adult. Yes they give a little history...More

The guides were very friendly and you learn some interesting history about the city. All the children on the tour got to ring the bell and blow the trolley's horn. I was surprised when halfway through the tour the trolley stopped and the conductors flipped...More

Surprisingly enjoyable ride. Very affordable and trolley can be boarded at multiple locations. Beautiful scenery. Ride is next to river on one side and Denver tourist areas on the other. Trolley passes REI, children's museum, and downtown arena. Tour provides historical facts along the route.
