I do not recommend this company to anyone and I would give it 0 stars if I could. We booked 3 trolleys for a wedding. Throughout the day, we were unable to verify if there were 3 trolleys working simultaneously. We suspect that only 2 were allocated to our group though the owner claims otherwise. We tipped them a large... More

We had a really bad experience with this company. Their customer service is truly horrendous. We ordered trolleys for a wedding where we had tipped the drivers ahead of time- they left out tip jars anyway- even after us asking them to take them down. They didn't pick up the guests on time and stranded the bridal party at the... More

Always amazing to see these homes,the gardens, the trees, the city itself...and to top it off some unbelievable history that makes today's happenings seem less surprising? Driver made it easy to love historic Wilmington.

Whomever had the idea to mount a fake replica of a San Francisco cable car on a truck bed and sell tours here in North Carolina wins the prize for stupidity. These phony trolley cars are uncomfortable drafty and difficult to get on and off. The tour itself was just average and not that interesting as historic district tours go.... More

I enjoyed this very much. The tour guide was very knowledgable and I learned a lot about the area while we toured. The trolley tour gave me a good idea of what I wanted to explore further. Afterward I walked and drove back to some of the places I wanted to spend more time looking at.

Took the tour on our first morning in Wilmington. You get to look around all the historic area near the Riverwalk. The guide has many interesting stories about the houses and the history of the area.

The tour was about 45 minutes, around the historic part of the city. We learned interesting facts about the city and the architecture of the city. Loved how each building has a different design, yet all fit nicely together. Loved the facts about the homes, that even if just remodeled look similar to how they looked in the 1800's. Reasonable...

The driver Kim was excellent at telling the history of his route. He made the trip very interesting. BUT, the trolley does not accept credit cards and there were young adults with children on the trolley and the adults were drinking beer the whole trip.
