This is something probably parents with young children will appreciate more than anyone else. The kids think it is a adventure and not so jaded with wham jam tv and thrill a moment adventures. Adults 11.00 and children under 12 are free with a adult. A nice adventure and a time to relax-pick up some information about the architecture and... More

We always enjoy taking the Wilmington Trolley every time we are in town. The drivers are always so informative. Lots of very interesting local history and we really enjoying the sites of the historic homes. A must-do activity for local history buffs.

We enjoyed the leisurely pace of Wilmington Trolley and learned much about this beautiful town. It allowed us to cover a lot of area, then walked the more interesting parts afterward. The "mission" of this company is commendable and we were pleased to support it--rescue of horses destined for slaughter--to be utilized as carriage "horsepower". The gentle horses are well... More

We wanted to take the tour around Wilmington and seeing the trolly tour signs we followed them to the stop. We were about 20 minutes early so we just waited. We were joined by about 10 more people. The time roles around for the trolley to arrive and no trolley. Then we notice a very small scribble piece of paper... More

It was a simply beautiful, unseasonably warm December day and we were on our first trip to Wilmington. We decided the trolley would be a good place to start as an overview, and were not disappointed. This tour covers pretty much all the same places as the horse tour, but for less money and I also found the narrator to... More

We called and the recording said tours every hour that day. We drove 30 miles from Southport and showed up at the meeting place at 3 pm along with 4 other people and the trolley never came. I paid $7 for parking. We went into the office at 101 South Water Street and they were rude and said they were... More

Interesting tour where you get a flavour of old town and all the magnificent old house. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and took pride in his job.

The trolley leaves on the hour, it is a 45 minute tour. The narration by the driver was exceptionally good. The driver was extremely well versed in the historic aspects of the city. Seating was comfortable and the sides of the trolley were open so views of the sights was unimpaired.

Trolley rides are a great way to get tons of information. $11 pp but if you stop into the visitors information that is located by the railroad museum you can get a coupon for a dollar off per person. (Pick up a map of the historic district while you're there). Money well spent in my opinion. Our tour was 45... More

It was an good tour of the historic section of Wilmington. Lots of history. The guide told us about famous people who were from Wilmington - lots of surprises, like Woodrow Wilson. I liked the fact that the guide didn't try to tell lots of jokes
