When we visited Astoria the trolley was only running on the weekends and made the round trip every hour. A great way to see the waterfront but a little bit of planning ahead of time is needed.

Had a lot of fun, especially when you get to the end of the line and have to turn around the seats! If you take this from one end, get the all-day pass ($2) and get off at the Maritime Museum, then 2 hours later get back on to go the rest of the way!

How cool....a trolley with funny commentary the whole way, as well as some history about the town. We will be making this a must when we return!

Very interesting and funny commentators on the trolley. You can ride for a $1 or all day for $2. I always enjoy the ride.

Leave your car parked and take a ride on the fun little trolley that trundles along the riverfront. For just $2 all day, you can go back and forth, hop on and off, and get an amusing history 'lesson' thrown in! On the day we rode the trolley, we hopped on and off, and our color commentators were Dale and... More

What a wonderful way to get the flavor of Astoria, Oregon. There is so much to see and do. Take the time for the Trolley. Just wave your dollar and they will stop. A beautiful piece of history.

Quaint, but not that special. Trolleys are everywhere in historic cities. If they made its trek longer and bring back the shanghai tunnel tours the wharf sightseeing could be great, but I guess the town's on hard times.

For a $1-($2 fon/off) you get about an hour of very informative info from the retired Vets who donate their time. We really enjoyed.
