We we're spending a couple days in Astoria and decided to check out the trolley. It is a fun way to burn a little time and see Astoria's riverfront area. The gentleman acting as our "tour guide" was fun and had lots of interesting facts and stories about the area. It was also a good way to scope out many... More

The trolley runs seasonally. Missed it our first visit so had to make another visit to ride it. Well worth the second trip. Very nostalgic and the conductors are funny and provide lots of history about the trolley and Astoria water front and city. Hop on and enjoy the ride.

We hopped on the trolley right outside our hotel. The driver told us so much interesting information about Astoria and pointed out all the interesting locations. We even saw a bald eagle on the water! You can get off wherever but we enjoyed riding all the way down just to listen and see the sights. I would definitely recommend!

Fun little run along the river. Host entertains with trivia and history and everyone is friendly. Crowded during the high season but fun, little ride, nonetheless.

Inexpensive thing to do in Astoria. Takes around 45 minutes or so for the round trip. Was a lot of fun & very informative. Was able to see so much along the waterfront. The guides were great. Will take the train ride again, next time in Astoria.

We made the 3 hour drive from Seattle specifically to take the trolley to see the sights. We checked the website and saw the trolley was in service the day we were there. Once we got there there was a sign posted stating it was in the shop until March. Thanks for not updating the website! We tried to enjoy... More

Really moves slowly, goes few places and you can likely walk faster, but its fun and would be great for kids or folks looking for a low impact visit. catch by the dock near the maritime museum.

The historical aspect of the trolley was great. So glad the weather cleared up so we could ride it. This is a great way to learn about different areas along the river.
