Fun little trip. The trolley is easy on and off. It parallels the Columbia River, and rolls through the working heart of the businesses. The conductors provided historical commentary.

We wanted to take the trolley, but it only runs in the summer. We walked along the boardwalk instead

Since very few ships stop here each year the people of this small town put a lot of effort into making passengers feel welcome. There are volunteers all around to make sure that you make the best of your time. They even send their theater group on to the ship to give a performance for the people who stay on... More

Hop on and see the water front and hear about Astoria's past. The city puts a effort out to welcome visitors and the trolley is no exception. The Driver keep you informed of the sights as you ride along the river front. The trip up and down the trip is cheap and fun.

Taking the trolley which is inexpensive you are given a quick history of the area by docents who are knowledgeable about the area and the history associated with it. As you go along the waterfront you get a sense of the maritime activity which evolved over the years. If you are with your family the kids will have the Goonie... More

So much fun, for so little money!! We paid for a single ride then paid again cause we learned something new every time we ride and the kids were so amused! Not one complaint and that's big coming from me...

This is so inexpensive and totally worth the time. It is a beautifully refurbished trolley that takes you from one end of Astoria to the other. You can get on and off at one of the many stops, so you can take your time looking around town. As you pass old buildings, pilings, or old buildings made new, you will... More

We have ridden the trolley a few times and have always found the driver and assistant to be very knowledgeable about the area. You can't beat tour for an hour round trip for only $1.

We enjoyed riding the trolley from one end of the line to the other. It was fun to switch the seats back and forth to prepare for the return ride. The jokes on the trolley by the drivers were really poor, and I wish that they would have shared more of the rich history of this phenomenal town. I do... More

We actually like to walk the entire several miles of the riverfront walk, but sometimes it's fun to pay a dollar and ride the trolley. What a fun experience. Great for kids and all ages. You can hop on or off at several stops along the route.

Thank northwest1000
