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

The Trolley Tour was included with our Groupon deal. Off-season, tour hours are limited, so you have to plan your day around the time that it departs. The tour is a great way to see the town, hear the history from a local, and then decide what you want to go back and visit on your own. That being said,... More

Very enjoyable. It is a very entertaining thing to do at the end of a day to relax the feet, enjoy the sights, occasionally laugh at the quips made by the guide. The halloween narration was okay, but could have been better had the stories tied in with specific homes. I was fortunate enough to be on a trolley with... More

This is a great way to see all of the Victorian architecture in Cape May without the hassle of driving around or walking for long distances. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the structures. He was funny and engaging...the time went very fast, but we were able to see so much. This tour is definitely worth...
