Our family thoroughly enjoyed the historical trolley tour which combined a trolley tour of the streets of Cape May with a guided tour of the Emlen Physick Estate. Our trolley guide provided much background information on Cape May, the architecture of the houses and the historical figures who founded the city. Our guide at the Physick Estate was excellent in...

We're glad you enjoyed the experience. The Combination Trolley and Physick Estate Tour is probably the best way to get acquainted with Cape May. Our guide enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of the town and the Physick Estate with visitors. It gives you a new appreciation for our history. More

What is there not to like? A great way to see and hear about the town of Cape May. Our guide and driver were both friendly and knowledgeable. The price is right- and the ticket and location are right at the end of the pedestrian mall. I highly recommend this for visitors to Cape May. The tour is 45 minutes,... More

The Trolley Tour is a great way to get acquainted with town. You get history and architecture, along with a sense of where things are. If you take the Combination Tour that includes the Physick Estate, you can have a mini-immersion in Victorian Cape May and you save $4! Thanks for visiting. More

This costs $12 for an adult and takes about 45 minutes. We had an enthusiastic guide who grew up in Cape May, raised his family here, and taught elementary school here for many years. He shared the history of the area, pointed out interesting homes, added stories, and told jokes and puns about the sites. Fun , relaxed time. Sit... More

The Trolley Tour is a great way to get to know the city. You can conveniently see the beautiful homes and B & Bs, learn about the architectural style, the city's history and the Victorian era in general. We're glad you enjoyed yourself. Hope next time you'll tour the Physick Estate too. More

Had a nice 35 min tour of historic homes with our two young children. Relaxing and informative. Plan to do early in trip so you can learn some streets worth visiting again. Thanks!

Took the great gaslight trolly tour. The driver Jerry and guide Barbara did a great job. Barbara is obviously very knowledgeable about Cape May history and I enjoyed seeing all the wonderful homes lit up at night. Have your camera ready when you go to the turn abound; great picture of the lighthouse with the sunset in the background. The... More

The owner of our vacation rental had recommended we take the historical tour with this company. It was very reasonable, only $12 per person for the basic tour. The trolley was open air along the sides and comfortable. Our tour guide was personable and very informative. Cape May has special recognition as a Historic Landmark. It is known for its... More

We really enjoyed the trolley tour of historic Cape May. Our husband and wife team (he drove and she talked) did an outstanding job of highlighting the significant buildings and explaining the unique architecture of each one. The tour takes about 45 minutes.

Had a marvelous tour of Victorian architectural gems while riding a comfortable trolley. The tour guide was knowledgeable, informative, and friendly. The homes were spectacular. The tour culminated in a tour of the interior of a Victorian mansion which was a wonder. If interested in Victoriana, this is a must see attraction! A cafe and restrooms are located on the... More

The tour was interesting, we learned a lot about the history of the homes and Cape May. We were the last couple to get on the trolley, therefore we has to take the last seats available. We sat directly behind the driver which obscured our view. Other than the poor view, the trolley is a great way to spend 90... More
