Nice way to travel

What a good way to get around, especially for those unfamiliar with the area. The travel through can take longer due to traffic but I liked seeing the area.

There were maps with several routes but the stops weren't very clear and since we were here on a busy saturday, they must have been running behind on what was supposed to be the schedule. It was a great concept but was a waste of our money and time trying to get on a trolley. We finally ended up walking.

We have been riding the trolleys for 26 years now. It is the best value and way to get around the town and area. Just buy the all day card for $2.50 per person and get on and off anywhere and as much as you want. We like it best at Christmas to see all the lights. I do not... More

Great way to see downtown hassle free. Park outside the city and get off downtown. Shop, eat, get on and off wherever you like. When the day is done, they will take you back to your car. I love the fact that we can all sight see together and enjoy the ride. Great value as well. It will cost less... More

If you're looking for an inexpensive traffic free way to look at the holiday lights I would recommend this. Tickets are only $5.00 per person. It takes about an hour to see all the displays set up around town. Our local guide was very knowledgeable about the area and shared things you might not know. Fun Tip: There are 73... More

Wow. I thought we were going on a special tour of lights. Turns out, you just see the lights that you could driving or walking around. It was mostly a tour of town with a less than enthused guide. Seating is TIGHT! Very uncomfortable on full rides. Driver was a huge Scrooge. It was the Christmas light tour, so when... More

The trolley is a good way to see the sights without having to drive. We went to the Christmas Lights Trolley Tour that they have in December and it was great. You have a tour guide who provides interesting information about the sights all along the way. All for a cheap price.

If you don't want to have to fool with all the problems with parking and traffic, the trolley is a good way to get around and see things if you aren't in a hurry. You never know exactly how long it will take but we really enjoyed using the trolley to get around and leaving our car at the resort... More

Great opportunity to tour part of the town. Driver is kind and helpful. Beautiful scenery! It was smoky to walk around, the trolley provided a brief viewing of the area before we decided which specific location to walk around.
