Good Trolley Service

This is helpful and convenient, especially when you have family members that are not keen on walking or have grown weary. You will learn quite a bit and be transported in style.

I cannot fault this trolley bus tour. Our driver was courteous and informative, personalising the tour and peppering it with anecdotes. Brilliant!

We thoroughly enjoyed our ride on the horse-drawn trolley around historic Wilmington. Our driver was named Dan, and he was so knowledgeable and funny. It was fascinating to hear about the beautiful old houses in the downtown area. I highly recommend this ride!

We enjoyed the trolley tour immensely with our driver "Kim".He was great at explaining all the historical sites of the old city. If you go downtown you must take the tour as it gives you a great history lesson of the city and area.

This is about a 50 minute ride and takes you outside the historic district as well as in the historic district. I liked seeing the hundreds and hundreds of old houses and hearing the stories behind some of them. It was a nice ride.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t notified until the day of the wedding that the AC was not cooling the trolley as it normally would but I could change to an open-air trolley if I wanted. I continued with the AC trolley as the open-air... More
