“LOVE IT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

It was fun and great ride. The afternoon driver was entertaining and full of information. Wish they posted their times, though sat in the dark not sure if there was car coming... but meet some nice folks along the way.

“Old fashioned and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We rode the street car up Canal Street from Charles Street. to the cemetaries. The tour book said we would see a lot of architecture change along the way and get a good sense of the city. Not true. If your intention is to see buildings, skip it. It was fun though to travel up the supposed widest street in the country and to see the expanse of cemeteries at the end of the line.

“Beautiful way to get around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Some of the trolleys were out of commission due to construction on the lines, but the ones we did get to ride on where in great shape with beautiful wood and open air. It was interesting to watch the driver, too, and figure out how it ran.

“Rolling history and on the National Register”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Take the streetcar from downtown up historic St. Charles Ave. and enjoy the sights. A neat tour for the sum total of $1.25 each way.

Ride a piece of history and see history as you travel.
