we purchased our tickets via the website before arriving. As busy as New Bern was we were the only guests on the trolly. We had a private tour! Phyllis our tour guide was filled with information and we learned a lot. Such a shame no one else chose to ride the Trolly that day.

Touring the beautifully restored homes and the reconstructed British governor's mansion is a gentle and really informative experience. The docents are amazing. Their knowledge is comprehensive and they guide you as personably as you might have dreamed a southern lady to be. The other 'players' (cook and serving maid) are equally gracious and extremely knowledgeable. Even the security guards were... More

John Gaston White did a great job bringing colonial New Bern to life. We were with a group from all over the state and everyone was so amazed and interested It was a great representation of New Bern! Very informative and a great prelude to the Palace.

Definitely a good use of your time and money as you are sightseeing in New Bern. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly and shared a variety of facts from all different time periods. The trolley was fun, clean, and comfy. We would have never known as much about New Bern without the trip and we appreciated the town... More

We went on this 90 minute trolley ride and loved it! We got a great overview of the city and a TON of history. The guide was very thorough and interesting! This is a wonderful introduction to the city!

The 90-minute tour shows off the history of New Bern with three stops, one at the cemetery, one at Christ Church, and one at the academy. The final stop was really just a chance to stretch your legs as there was nothing much to see in the grass lot where we stood. We toured with a local who was able... More

It amazed us when we moved here the history that is within this little town. If you are visiting take a trolley tour from Tryron Palace to see and hear about the town. Grab a map and find the bears! I still chuckle when I am asked what they mean because I once did the same thing although we didn't... More

Beware! They need at least 6 paying customers to conduct tour. Although we called ahead this was not mentioned and we detoured here for the purpose of this tour. Initially it seem there would not be 6 so we offered to pay for the 2 extra tickets needed. Both the driver (Joe Hudson) and the guide (John Muth) were agreeable... More

The tour was an awesome look into the past. So much colonial history in this quaint town!!! Note: we were there in mid-March when tours don't operate on Tue or Wed. I called ahead ( on a Monday) to find out that tours only run at 2:00. What they didn't tell me was that they will not run unless there... More
