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

We had a large group and took the holidays lights tour that included a stop at Dr. Piltzers house for an included tour. It cost $20.00 a person. They drive you around town to see the lights. The tour lasts 1 1/2 hours. With 30 mins at the house. We sang Christmas carols along the way as we heard stories... More

We took the historic Cape May tour. The guide was funny and knowledgeable. They really show you many of the historic landmarks in Cape May and give you a history lesson to boot. Even found some places we wanted to go back to during the tour.

Nice 45 minute trolley ride through Cape May proper. Good way to get the lay of the land and see some interesting housing architecture and a bit of history. Tour guide was well versed, entertaining and receptive to questions. Trolley tour begins and ends right in the center of town and for $12, not a bad choice for first time... More

A friend and I decided to take the trolley to learn more about the Victorian Homes in Cape May. We had been to the Physic House in the past, so this expanded our knowledge. The website had given limited times for tours, but the kiosk on Washington St. Mall had more choices, which was good. So you board the trolley... More
