My family and friends took this tour which runs for half an hour on New Year's eve. It was fun and the tour guide did an excellent job. The tour when through the town and we all sang Christmas Carols to enhance the Christmas mood.

We spent a very pleasant afternoon visiting the sights and sounds of Cape May. The bus is comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable and informative. We got to see the impressive architecture and learnt about the town's history and heritage. Relaxing and educational - a very nice combination!

The hype around the Holiday light and Physick house tour was more then the actual tour. There guide does not really point out many Victorian houses that are decorated but does include a family style Christmas Carol sing along. I would have prefeered more info on the homes we were seeing and less corny jokes. The Physick estate was fun... More

I always take a trolley tour each year in Cape May. The Christmas tours are a lot of fun. We sang Christmas carols and got lots of history. The ghosts of Christmas passed tour was the only tour I found very, very boring!

I wish I could give this tour a higher rating. I was expecting more of ghost tour that talked about ghosts of Cape May and maybe stopping in front of some haunted historical places. Instead the tour was more of a theatrical storytelling of two silly ghost stories as we rode through the streets of Cape May. The Christmas lights... More

This is especially wonderful at holiday time in December. the houses are all lighted up for the month. Houses you would not even notice in summer are decked out.The trolley guide gives you the history of the house while music is playing. the trolley goes rain or shine as it is enclosed. a wonderful ride

Took a Holiday Lights Trolley Ride in Dec 2015. What a great time! Learned about the history of Cape May along with singing Christmas carols and seeing the Christmas lights. Worthwhile and reasonably priced activity in December in Cape May!
