This is a must if you want to get an overview of the historic area of Wilmington. The driver was very nice and even told us of a coupon so we could get $1.00 off. Lots of information that I could not all take in but was helpful anyway. later I went walking on the streets to get a up... More

My cousin and I enjoyed this trolly tour around historical Wilmington. The tour guide was very insightful on the history of Wilmington and showed us a lot of the houses around historical Wilmington. There is a coupon included in the map of Wilmington, so the ride was only $10, ($1 off) and well worth it to see and learn about... More

My husband and I went on this tour and our guide Richard was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable. Learned so much we never know. Want to bring family here when the visit next.

My Dad and I went on the trolley tour. Our guide, Willie, was very informative. It was a great way to see parts of old Wilmington.

We had previously taken the carriage tour the day before, we liked that but this tour took us to many different areas we hadn't seen previously and gave us some hint as to where we wanted to return to visit. The tour guide and operator of the trolley was very interesting and he knew his stuff when it came to... More

This was the perfect way to get one's bearings in downtown Wilmington. The tour lasts 45 minutes and tells stories of famous people and events in Wilmington.

I think it is wonderful that they have this and offer it to the public, it is fun to see. The few times I have ridden it to different events it is uncomfortable and seems rather unsafe! Don 't get me wrong, it is great but I just found it a bit scarey! Hold on!

Let me start by saying that I do not take my reviews on Tripadvisor lightly. I feel compelled to provide a frank and direct appraisal of my experience. In the case of this tour I have to say I was disappointed. The tour was advertised as a Holiday Lights Tour. As such I expected to see holiday lights. I had... More

This wasn't the best trolley tour I've had, but it was interesting. The tour guide was very friendly (wish I could remember his name... in his 70s, used to be a NYC police officer) and he did a good job. But, I'm just not sure there is THAT much in Wilmington to fill much longer of a tour. At only... More
