Our tour guide, Marianne was so knowledgeable and gave us great insight on the homes we saw on our tour. We had free tickets from the package from our stay at the Carroll Villa hotel, but this tour is well worth the cost . We saw from the comfort of our well heated trolley(it was quite cold outside!) over 45... More

Our trolley tour was so much fun! The guide was extremely informative and her love for Cape May was obvious. The mansions were beautiful and the history of each so interesting!

Enjoyed the Cape May Christmas Light Trolley Tour. Very informative and enjoyed seeing all the places in Christmas lights. Would have liked to have seen more places lit up and more religious items - nativities - angels Nice one hour tour.

We were fortunate to do this tour on a clear, relatively mild night in December, so walking around from place to place with a couple of trolley rides was pleasant. In 3 hours we saw all but one of the buildings on the tour. Really worth doing, although I can imagine if the weather didn't cooperate it would not be... More

We did the combo trip that toured the lights and finished with a tour of the Physick estate. We were in a large group and everyone liked it. It was a nice way to see the lights and our tour guide had some interesting facts for us along the way. Even his jokes were amusing. A pleasant way to view... More

The holiday season is a wonderful time to visit Cape May. The evening tour to see the lights and a visit to the Physick Estate, decorated as it might have been in the 1890s, is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Thanks for visiting. More

Incompetence, disorganization and negligence. These three words sum our experience for this event. The homes near the start of the tour had seemingly hour long lines, so we chose to jump on a trolley to the furthest ones and work our way back to the start. After visiting only three homes, we found ourselves marooned at the furthest one away... More

Excellent value. Very good use of time, especially on a cold, rainy day in December. Quite informative about Cape May history and architecture. Tour guide, Sue, was knowledgeable, funny and personable. Trolley was comfortable.

Our guides look forward to sharing their knowledge and love of the town with visitors and the combination Trolley/Physick Estate Tour is the best and most convenient way to learn about our Victorian seaside resort. It's also a bargain, saving $4 off the cost of individual tours. Thanks for visiting with us. More

Rainy night, $25 ticket, lots of people... I expected better trolley service especially when the promotional material stated "continuous trolley service". At the start of the tour we waited at a trolley stop for 15 minutes and a trolley never appeared. We finally walked to another spot on the tour. Trolleys were very crowded and there were waits at almost... More

While the trolleys do run in a continuous loop during the evening, this tour is usually primarily a walking tour. Cape May is an accessible town and conducive to walking. Most houses are clustered in the downtown historic district. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate, and many tour goers decided to ride the trolleys instead, causing unanticipated crowding and delays. Thank... More
