Jacksonville is a small National Historic Monument town in Southern Oregon. The trolley is a fun ride for all ages. Sit on the outside seats and enjoy the narrated tour which will tell you about the town's history (used to be a gold rush town). You will see many Victorian era homes as well as the quaint downtown. A fun... More

At $5 it's a deal. Jacksonville is a very small town. You can easily walk it, but why not ride the old trolley to see the highlights, then walk it to take in more depth. I live in this town and I think it's the best introduction to Jacksonville.

I went with about a dozen people today on the Trolley Tour. Very enjoyable trip, lasting about 40 minutes and only costing $5 a person. Money well spent! The driver was very knowledgeable about historical Jacksonville, and although I'd visited Jacksonville several times previously, I learned a LOT about the history of this unique little town. A of of fun,... More

I love these kinds of things when I visit somewhere new. Right a way you get a little history & feel for the place helping you to decide what you want to learn more about. Tour takes about 45 mins & our guide was fun & knowledgeable. Well worth it.

Having led tours on the bus and taken visitors for a half hour ride to see the town, I can recommend it to young and old! See the sights from an open air trolley, wave at the "natives" and enjoy our history. Then go back to things that looked interesting as you passed.
