Hamilton Waterfront Trolley is an inexpensive, relaxing, educational ride around Hamilton Waterfront. Tour is just over an hour and tells history of waterfront and points out places of interest you may not know about. Nice way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends or family then go to Williams for tea or coffee to end the visit of the... More

$5 is all you need to know about the waterfront. THe hour long trolley ride will take you all over the waterfront as the tour guide touches on some of the stories behind the various sites along the path. Kids liked it too. Just make sure you use the bathroom before the tour.

Took my two kids for a Sunday ride. It's a 12km trail along the waterfront and through many parks. It was a cheap way to entertain them for a few hours. We had lunch at Williams Cafe after. The lineup was huge and the wait was WAY too long. We almost got up and left.

Went last week as part of a senior bus tour from Toronto. Never seen the bay from this side and it came as a complete surprise. The ride was well worth the price of $5.00 The trail is a delight for cyclists and hikers and the tranquility of just the natural wilderness with no commercial intrusions only swans and other...

Very enjoyable. 75 minute tour of the waterfront, with a variety of of things to see. Don't expect a world-class city--its Hamilton. But for Hamiton, this is great!

Leisurely narrated tour. I have taken it twice.It is a must do if in Hamilton. There is a free trolley from downtown Hamilton. See and learn things you would not get on foot.
