How often can you go somewhere and get a free ride to see the town? You can ride around as much or as little as you like, you can get off at different places and when you are ready catch the trolley again. I think it is a great thing. And, on a hot day a way to cool off... More

If you like it slow and easy, this will be your thing. I had 14 teenagers with me, so it wasn't the best choice for us to spend 40 minutes. The "captain" was very nice, and he even dropped us off near our bus. The air conditioners leaked onto the seats, and that was awkward, but the "captain" had hand... More

I alway's use the Trolley when I am shopping and eating because I like to move around a lot. I just don't want to have to get in my car and drive 2 minutes from one end to another.

only positive reviews are obvious plants in tripadvisor by woodlands visitors bureau or something. These boats don't go anywhere useful and don't show anything interesting. I read about how much money these cost the woodlands and I have to laugh.

Try to take this boat after 6 p.m. in a summer so the hot Houston's summer is not that bad. Enjoy the ride and get off to have dinner at any restaurant, I recommend America's, right at the door steps and delicious. Great way to go around the woodlands and experience a delightful afternoon.

Hard to say much ore than the title, the highlight of the ride was to try and see the rainbow on the water jets in mall pond. There is nothing in it other than riding the slow boat and look at a couple of buildings, very little commentary.

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
