Tour lasted 30 minutes for $5 and was well worth the trip. You have to order your tickets online on 15 Oct as they sell out quickly. We were driven to all the light displays in the area with a narrated tour and Christmas music. Our driver and narrator were really good and shared interesting memorabilia of the area and... More

Love that this is so cheap and truly the best way to get around the city! You literally can't even find parking this cheap there. The trolleys are also pretty consistent timing wise!

My aunt and I took the holiday lights trolley. It was fun and would be nice with some hot chocolate or coffee to take along. I liked sitting down and having someone else do the driving while I looked at the lights. The stories are quite fun from the driver's helper!

For 50 cents a ride, you can't walk that cheap. Use the trolley to get around because it's faster than trying to drive in bumper to bumper traffic with little or no places to park.

The trolley is perfect for those who don't really like to walk from one end of the strip to the other. The price was affordable. It made seeing Gatlinburg so much more enjoyable than trying to watch the bumper to bumper traffic!

This was not as great as it sounds. I thought the way they described it you would see lots and lots of lights not. We only saw a few lights most of them were on the opposite side of were we sat. They had a man who told the stories of the town wasn't to bad but not great. I... More

My wife and I visit often in Gatlinburg and during this visit, which was our main reason for this trip, we had taken the trolley Christmas light tour. We had taken the 8:30 trip and it was great! Our driver, Billy Profit, and the tour guide, had done an excellent job of presenting Gatlinburg to the folks. They made us... More

We bought all-day passes at the Welcome Center for $4.00. The route started at 10 am (off season). 30 mins later, it still had not arrived. Checking the "trolley locator" on the website showed that it had only moved one stop. Traffic wasn't bad, so we had no idea what the hold up could be. After 45 mins of waiting,... More

I have been riding the trollies in Gatlinburg since I was a small child. This is by far the most inexpensive and sensible way to travel throughout the area. Pay attention to the color displayed on the trolley you need to ride to get where you are wanting to go. $0.50/person, per ride or purchasing an all-day pass for $2.00/person... More
