Relatives told us about the trolley tour and the city of Jacksonville. We were not expecting too much because Jacksonville is really in the middle of 'nowhere' - but we had a fabulous time and really enjoyed the beautiful day and the sightseeing tour. The tour starts every hour on the hour from 11 am through the day and lasted... More

We wave to the visitors riding this trolley almost every day. In the weeks surrounding Christmas you can bundle up and enjoy the same tour in a horse-drawn trolley. Super cool, and if the price hasn't changed, it's only five bucks. The drivers are members of the Historical Society and well-versed in the town's history, some even being descended from... More

I live in Jacksonville and often take out of town company on the Trolly Tour! It's fun and a great way to rest your feet while seeing the sites in comfort. About 40min and the small fee go to the city to maintain the Trolly. We are a tiny community and could not afford the Trolly without this small assistance.

If it is your first time in the Jacksonville area then the trolley is a must. My husband and I took the trip in late October and it was a bit brisk but the ride was so enjoyable and the driver was a delight. There was only one other couple on our 11:00 tour so we had lots of interaction.... More

My wife and I took this tour on a late September afternoon and we really enjoyed it. There was only one other couple on the trolley. We took the seats right at the side of the driver and we could hear everything perfectly. The other couple initially sat in the middle of the trolley but later moved to the bench... More

Good way to get your bearings in Jacksonville and learn a bit about the city. Poor mic system, though. Difficult to understand.

The acoustics on this trolley were very poor and at one point gave out entirely and the driver had to stop the tour and change batteries on his headset, which helped at first, but then the volume decreased again. If you were not sitting directly in back of him, it was very hard to hear and impossible to hear if... More

We thought this would be a good 20min diversion for the kids (they were getting antsy going in and out of the cute shops). For $5 per adult, big kids $3 and little kids free, it was excellent value, informative and the driver was fun. Love Jacksonville; very cute spot.

This historic 45min trolley tour is well worth the $5!! We had such a fun time- interesting history and great info on local businesses.

This is a relaxing and interesting way to learn about this historic town. The tour takes you to the outskirts of town, to places further than you might want to walk. Once you have been onboard, you can decide what you want to return to see in more detail. Cute town, nice people living there...all who will be happy to... More
