hop on board

this is a lovely relaxing way to go around the waterfront, you get to see the scenery, people watch, bird watch and feel the breeze from the bay.

This trolley has to be the slowest way to get around, and often leaves you in the dust if it is full. The staff do not really know what they are talking about, as I have heard many errors made whilst passing this trolley on my bike. The seats are uncomfortable, and the tour is probably 10 years too early.

Very nice drive around the Bayfront park and to the Marina. There is guide on the trolley which tells you about the history of the places you pass. This is a hop-on hop-off and you can use it

I enjoyed it. It's an open tram ride across the Hamilton waterfront. Sure beats walking and covers much of the lengthy waterfront providing a very scenic view of the lake. The ride back and forth with various stops along the way where you can get off takes just over an hour. Does not cost too much for a ticket either.... More

I rode the Hamilton Waterfront Trolley with my 7-year-old son in August 2015. We have also rode this trolley when it was chartered as part of Ghost Walks’ “Hamilton’s Dark Trolley Tour.” The Hamilton Waterfront Trolley is an open-air, rubber-wheeled, gasoline powered trolley that runs along Hamilton’s Waterfront Trail and Desjardins Recreation Trail. The cars have steel undercarriages with wooden... More

We take our grand children once a year, they just love going on the train. Lots to see. In the middle the train stops for a few minute break. Ask what seats are less bumpy.

What a nice ride. We saw a part of Hamilton that we didn't know existed and it was beautiful! Great commentary as well.

Took this tour recently and was really impressed with the friendly and informative guide and driver. The entire tour was just over an hour, and the guide had terrific information about the waterfront, the forests, the residential developments, etc. One of my companions has some mobility issues, and this was a great tour for all of us. Young or old,... More
