Taxis are a necessity in many cities. But when there is a waterway nearby, the concept of taking a taxi has an entirely different meaning. The Woodlands Waterway Trolley is a prime example of something different; a water- bound vehicle that can be used to transport people from place to place, host parties, and more. I have used the Woodlands... More

Travelling from Canada I was very impressed with the trolley (free) and its great service to the people working, living & visiting The Woodlands. How can you complain about a free service that takes you on a loop to all the shopping and restaurants in the center of The Woodlands? You can hop on and off at your leisure in... More

As a long-time Woodlands resident, I was excited to take my family, visiting from out of state, on an evening Waterway boat tour on December 29, 2013. Though I have not taken the boat ride in about 4 to 5 years, I was shockingly disappointed (and embarrassed). In years past, the boat tour was a real tour--a welcoming boat 'captain'... More

Even though the cost is not much, the boat ride was short and everything we saw could have been better seen by walking the waterway.

My review of The Woodlands Waterway Trolley will be somewhat biased because I lived in The Woodlands for 38 years and love everything about the city. I am now living in Geneva, Switzerland and think of the wonderful waterway in The Woodlands often. I have ridden the trolley several times just for the fun of it. As a local, many... More

The kids loved the boat ride and seeing the sights of the Woodlands. We have been out there many times and always talked about doing it and never had. The tickets are inexpensive and good for the entire day. My reservation with doing it was the heat, I did not realize they were enclosed and air conditioned...game changer! The ride... More

We went last year it was a nice ride. It moves slow so you can enjoy the scenery. The price was a little expensive for me for a short time. All in all it was good something different to do.

These boats are a ride to no where over an uninspiring landscape. This is not San Antonio and these boats are a novelty if you are really short of things to do. Go to the Children's Museum instead for children. It is a novelty perhaps for one time, but why bother to ever come back?

While I enjoyed encountering some of the local wildlife (turtles & herons), cruising past buildings on a narrow waterway (man made) was not my cuppa. If you are using the water trolly to get from Point A to Point B (transportation) then I would recommend it. But as a tourist attraction, it is really lacking.
