The free trolley was a great way to get around the entire downtown area and see where things are located. It helped us to see how far we were from many of the places we wanted to visit.

I normally really enjoy trolley tours in other cities as they are a great way to learn where things are located and learn some history. Having been to Wilmington before, I was surprised with the tour route and the places we didn't see. I know there is a lot of construction at the moment so that may be why. The... More

It was a nice 45 minute ride through town but for $11 it was not worth it. Our guide new his stuff but just rattled off facts; could have made it a lot better.

We went on a warm day and were on the first ride of the day to avoid the heat. It was open-air and easy to enjoy what the driver was explaining. Our driver was Michael and he did a really good job. I wish we had time to go back to some of the more interesting places and go inside.

The driver was such a nice man, he made sure to greet each one of the passengers as they got on and made conversation with us while we waited. He spoke very clearly and really seemed passionate about his work! The ride was nice as well as we had an open trolley and the breeze felt wonderful! Would recommend to... More
