This is a delightful tourist experience riding a restored trolley staffed by volunteer workers who explain all the sights you pass plus some history of Astoria . That it costs only a dollar....no matter how long you stay on..is an incredible value. You can't see the waterfront and river views in a better way. I am assuming that this is... More

It was so much fun to ride aboard the trolley and hear from volunteer trolley operators some of Astoria's history. Had we not done this, we would have had no idea. The narrators were quite entertaining with a fun sense of humor. At the price of only $1 each... it was cheap entertainment with some history thrown in there. Pick... More

We rode the trolley on a beautiful day. We learned a lot about the waterfront history as well as had beautiful views the entire ride.

It is fun and informative. Takes you right thru town with easy on and off so you can come and go as you please.

At first all I wanted was some cheap transportation but discovered a gem, must-ride, excursion along the riverfront. For just $1.00, you can ride one-way and for $2.00 you can ride all day! Hop-on, hop-off for some fun.

From the time we stepped off the ship- we were treated like royalty by all who awaited us at the docks. What lovely people! We purchased a $7 all day pass which allowed us a bus ride to the Maritime museum, bus up to the Column and then the trolley back to the ship. Every person we encountered was pleasant... More

I absolutely loved the trolly. The trolly itself is beautifully restored and very quaint. The drivers provide a running commentary of history, information, facts, and attractions mixed in with the right amount of humor. The views are great too. Great way to get a good overview of the whole area and a bargain at $1/person.

For either $2 for all day hop on hop off or for $1 to ride once, you can enjoy a relaxing and informative narrated trip along the riverfront in a 100 year old trolley learning a little bit about Astoria and taking in the scenery at the same time! Trolley has many stops throughout the route, including right in front... More

We took the trolley about three years and almost skipped it again (like our last couple of visits), but thank goodness we didn't! For $1 we rode for about 45 minutes and learned sooooo much about the history of this area. For $2 you can ride (hop on and off) all day!! The trolley follows the riverfront and goes by... More

For a $1.00 donation, you can complete a narrated and scenic trip from and back to your trolley stop. Trolley runs on one track up and down the river front. Passengers flip seats around to face the front when trolley changes direction. Trolley driver up front and Trolley conductor/narrator in the back. Trolley is manned by dedicated volunteers. Great way... More
