What a great surprise! My husband and I had just walked around S. Pete Pier and were stading on the sidewalk when we saw the trolley and we asked for some information. Rafael, the driver, was super friendly and he invied us to hop on. We did, and had a great 30-minute ride around downtown St. Pete. Rafael was very knowledgeble about the history of the city, and he made sure to point all the historic buildings. We do recommend the Looper Trolley.

First trip to town? Go out to the pier on second avenue, go all the way out and park in the lot on the left, this is public parking and you will have to pay a modest amount. There are several options for getting around, read the signs and make your decision. Several of the options allow you to ride "FREE" around the downtown district. We took the "Downtown Looper" paid our $1 each (50 cents for Seniors) and took the extended tour. We tipped the driver when we got off downtown. Wandered around for a bit then caught the "Downtown Looper" back to the parking lot. This is really a pretty good way to get around and avoid parking issues.

We chose the Looper Trolley to tour downtown St. Petersburg as we had a short time in town and opted to not use the car. The Looper, as it is known, departs from the final stop, at Bay Front, and in a circle, tours the central loop along about 40 minutes when passengers are shown the main attractions in the area, including the museums, churches, monuments, the century-old buildings, restaurants, the bay front, cafes, bars and more. Just 50 cents per person is the fare for the tour. Passengers can can hop off and hop on back for free at any stop on the flat fare zone (the Looper map shows which are these stops), or for an additional 50 cents more per person at any other stop outside the flat fare zone.

After a nice lunch in the newly revitalized SunDial St Petes Mall my wife and I wanted to see the so called progress on the revitalizing of the pier. To our surprise there has been no apparent progress. So we hopped on the Looper for the ride back to Beach Drive.
Terrance was our driver and hilarious at that. He was sincerely interested where all those that boarded were from. As he "looped" the neighbourhood he noted points of interest and gave reviews of the different restaurants and all for the extreme fare of $0.50 per ride!

What a wonderful way to see downtown St. Petersburg! Our driver was friendly and informative. He gave us a lot of history on the area while driving safely through the busy streets. $3.00 to park and a $0.50 bus ride! What a steal!

We were bored so we decided to go to St Pete, we live close by ,but never really toured around St. Pete before. We parked at the pier , costs only 3.00 for the entire day, the trolley picks you up right there, the cost is 50 cents, 25 cents for seniors, just make sure you have the correct change.we only waited 5 minutes and we boarded the troley, we did the troley loop and decided where we wanted to get off to browse or visit , so second loop around we got off at the Second stop, there are a bunch of little stores , tea shops, coffee shops, ice cream and gelato store, jewelry stores and restaurants. I bought some jewelry , we had some icecream and bought some chocolate. We got back on the trolley and we got off at the Dali museum , walked over the the airport, and had lunch at the airport hanger restaurant, I will pit that in a separate review, then we walked back to the Dali museum, which I will also write a review on, back on the trolley and back to the pier, took a nice dolphin site seeing cruise. It was the perfect day!

We took the trolley car and it was fantastic. It's cheap but the tour is well worth it. The driver was extremely friendly and his knowledge of the city was awesome. If you are a senior it's only .25 whole cents. This is a marvelous .50 cent tour.

I loved traveling around town on the Looper! Our driver/tour guide was very nice and informative; he pointed out many great restaurants along the path. He seemed happy and loved his job. The tour costs on 50 cents, and I rode all the way back to the stop where I initially got on! I will use the Looper to get around downtown instead of driving the rest of the week when I'm traveling too far to walk. You should try this tour!

We used a long-term parking spot and got around the city using this free service and it could not have been better! The drivers were very helpful, knowledgable and kept up a running commentary as we wound through the city. This was a free service.

What a smart idea -- to put this cute little trolley into service, for 50 cents, to explore the whole downtown area of St. Pete! It is just so convenient for tourists to use it - hop in, hop out, and enjoy the city. Daily passes for other trolleys are valid for this one too, as we discovered. Maps of the Looper route are offered at the hotels and at the friendliest St. Peterburg Store and Visitors Center, downtown - across from Sundial.
