Volunteers tell history of the town, waterfront and the trolley. Turning the trolley around was most amusing. When the conductor said, "I hope you are feeling strong, today," it worried me a bit. Very clever. very fun.

Takes you up and down the riverfront with the conductor narrating as you go about the history of the area! Our conductor added humor as we went which made the ride more fun!

This is a great way to learn local history and see where it happened. The trolley conductor narrates every detail on the ride, you can get on and off if you buy a day pass too.

It is well worth the $1.00 per person charge or $2.00 all day, it only goes maybe 2 miles back & forth, the history that the volunteers told us was wonderful , they are just so proud of their Trolley

This is a cheap and wonderful way to see astoria riverfront. It gives you an idea of the town. Kids really enjoy it and you can get off and on any time you want for only a dollar.

The trolley covers about 3 1/2 miles of shoreline going back and forth. We took it from the Wet Dog Cafe to one end to the other and back. The conductor of this hundred year old trolley will give you a history lesson on Astoria, places to go and things to see. Try for a seat on the water side... More

We rode the 3 1/2 mile so we could hear about the history of Astoria, but I also suspect it could be a great way to get up and down the riverfront if you are staying in Astoria

I would suggest that you take the entire trip to learn all about the history and the attractions along the way. The trolley is staffed by volunteers that are the best tour guides ever! It was fun and informative. You can get on and off at different points along the way or just go for the ride. A great way... More
