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

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.
