Loved our little river tour on the old trolley. The ride takes about 30 minutes and only costs $5 per person, plus they give you a quick tour and some info about the city and the Platte. You can use the trolley as transportation to get to the aquarium or the children's museum, as most of the people with families... More

This was a nice tour for a fair price but really short. The river is pretty and the guides had a few tidbits of Denver history but the ride out and back seemed like 1/2 mile or less. I was hoping to see more of the city based on other reviews, but a fine little trip overall.

We wish there were more track to travel along and there are very tentative plans (dreams) to expand our line. The round trip ride (out and back) is a... More

I am a sucker for anything on rails, so take that into account in my review :) This is a short ride, which we took from the REI retail store. I believe the tickets were $5, but that is from memory. It is a nice ride along the creek and passes Mile High Stadium and the skyline. I think most... More

What a lovely, inexpensive way to get a mini-tour of the lower downtown area. Great for kids, especially those who like trains. Get a view of the city skyline, the mountains, Mile High stadium (also known as Sports Authority Field), Cherry Creek and learn some Denver history. Trolley runs between the REI Store to Colfax Avenue, including stops at the... More

Neat ride along the Platte river. Get on next to the aquarium or Childrens museum. Buy tickets at Aquarium or museum.
