My family rode the trolley for a good hour, which was the perfect amount of time to take a round trip and see all there is to see. The guys running the trolley know everything there is to know about Astoria and were so nice! They even let my kids ring the bell, which may have been the highlight of... More

Fun narration of Astoria's history and activities. It makes the riverfront loop about every 50-55 minutes.

It's only a $1 and you get a lovely ride down by the riverfront while given the history by a narrator on the PA system. A good way to spend a hour.

Nice way to see the waterfront. Conductor is friendly and gives lots of interesting information about Astoria. Only $2! You can ride as long as you like.

This is a 'real' 1913 trolley (powered by it's own generator) beautifully restored and run by volunteers. For a dollar you can stay on as long as you want. For $2 you can hop on an off all day! All the while you'll get a running narrative by the very knowledgeable and personable motor men who are possibly having even... More

The trolley ride is just average. Needs something to add to the trip to make it more fun. History is worthwhile.

I loved this tour from retired members of the community. The old trolley if very cool. It's nice to see people taking such pride in their community. I would recommend this tour. Take the time to do it. Can hop on and off if that is your desire, but will miss many historical points.

Excellent way to see the Astoria Riverfront. Pay $2 and get off/on all you like. We rode as far west as the trolley goes and walked back. Highly recommend

It takes an hour from end to end so should not be thought of as a hop-on hop-off kind of thing. Pick on end and take the ride. Nice views of the backside of Astoria.
