The views of the city and the river from this trolley car are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

We have walked across, biked across and rode the Streetcar across. The river valley views are stunning and ever changing from the first frazzle pans of winter to the spring breakup, the summer green and the fall colours. Now it is illuminated as well. A big part of Edmonton, past and present.

For a reasonable price , you get transportation across the bridge ,a great view of the river valley and downtown as well as a history lesson from the driver.

We normally go here for a Sunday morning breakfast, and try to arrive for opening at 8:30; they always seem to be open already. The cinnamon buns are great and the blueberry pancakes look good. I've also had the hot cereal and very much enjoyed that too!

We started this tour from the stop just off of Whyte Ave. The street car travels across the High Level Bridge into downtown Edmonton, making two stops. You are able to disembark (presumably to do some shopping???) and reboard later on, but this option had no appeal to us as we are from Edmonton. The historical society staff are all... More

If you are looking for a fun way to get from downtown to Old Strathcona in the summer, look no farther. For $3.00, you can take a vintage streetcar over the high level bridge and get some of the best views in Edmonton. If you time it right, this is probably the quickest way to get from certain parts of... More

The tour isn't that long, but it's nice to get out and cross the bridge in the old streetcar. The tour could be a bit longer or provide more information.

This is brilliant. The view is unmatched. Take the kids; they'll love it. (Hint: Park downtown, take the LRT to the Grandin Station, take the Street Car to Old Strathcona, spend a few hours on Whyte Ave and Return the same way)

The little streetcar carried us over the high-level bridge and into the heart of Old Strathcona where we checked out the farmer's market and Whyte Ave. Nice to sit back and relax without feeling rushed, unlike the lrt and buses
