I loved this....once we found it! My phone kept sending me to the weirdest places....I wound up at the Port Authority and had to move my car. We rode the tram all the way down the walk and then got off at the Maritime Museum, which was great. There are a number of great little spots for lunch and coffee... More

The trolly ride was super enjoyable, especially after walking all over town. The trolly itself is old, but still in excellent shape! For the small price of $1, it will take you all the down the river, giving you amazing views along the way! The drivers give you history of town along the way, which I really enjoyed. Bottom line...

No big deal. If you have been on a tram anywhere in the world, this is not a "must do". If you have the time and are unable to walk, do hop on.

The trolley ride is fun and the drivers give you lots of information about Astoria. You can get around the riverfront by riding the trolley or you can just ride it around for the experience. A round trip ride is approximately one hour. One ride is $1. All day pass is $2. However, if you go to the Astoria visitor's... More

My husband and I parked at one end of the river walk and walked the path to the end. It was a hot hot day. For $1 each, we were carried the 3.5 miles back to our car and we got to learn a little about Astoria's history along the way. The conductors, volunteers, were friendly and knowledgeable. The trolley... More

This is a great trolley ride run by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. Wave a $1 and it will stop anywhere. For $2 you can ride all day. The commentary from the drivers is really useful too.

This was a fun way to get down to the pier. The drivers were funny, and it was great to take a trip back in time. We bought the all day, thinking we would ride the trolley back from the pier as well. What we didn't realize is that the trolley service is slow and there is only 1. It... More

Riding the 100+ year old trolley was fun. The conductors told stories about the area as you travel and were funny and informative. $2 fare is for all day.

Our hotel was just steps from this trolley and it only cost a dollar per person, the conductors are volunteers. This trolley operates for several miles at a slow pace along the Columbia River. It stops were you want to stop.

We got on at the maritime Museum stop. Stop was pretty busy and it would be better to get on at any of the other stops on the line. We rode to one end and all the way back to the other end. Trolley rides are one dollar per rider or two dollars to ride all day. Trolley operators are... More
