I found the trolley ride quite pricey and more then one would care to spend for a ride on a bumpy uncomfortable noisy park ride of sorts. For 2 Adults it cost us $10 and $3 for kids 4 to 12 so for a family that is better part of $20. The tour announcer onboard was a bored highschool kid... More

Overall a very beautiful tour of one of Hamilton's most beautiful areas. On a nice summer day this is a great tour for a couple, a family, friends, neighbours, or basically anyone in between. My only complaint would be it can get uncomfortable on your bottom if you do not bring something softer to sit on. The wooden benches are... More

We love doing this little putting at least three times a summer. We enjoy the scenery and the tide. Very interesting the things you learn I can never get bored of it! We have lunch there as well and ice cream the kids love it and it's very reasonably priced. Good way to spend the afternoon with the family.

Saw a lot of wildlife along the way. A lot of stops to get on and off at if you want to explore. Awesome that the stamp on your hand is good for all day. Was able to enjoy looking at things without having to drive. Able to people watch along the way. I would have liked a bit more... More

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

The parks and rail yards are on the south side of the trail and the Hamilton Harbor is on the North side.people also walk along this path... 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.

Cute little mobile tram which drives along the bike and walking waterfront trails giving superb views of the city and the bay. With stops along the way you can hop on and off and explore. A tour guide gives commentary along the trip sharing insight into the local points of interest. A must do at least once whether your a... More
