“Nice General Tour of Cape May for $10”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We bought tickets at the Washington Street Mall information booth for the 45 minute Cape May Trolley Tour which leaves from across the street from the booth. The driver & the narrator were both good.

The tour pointed out the highlights & architecture & history of the many highlights in the town. It is a great way to get a good overview of Cape May. I would recommend it.

“Interesting, a must see in Cape May”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I recently stayed in Cape May, and received a Historic Trolley Tour ticket as part of the package I booked. I am so glad that I decided to take the tour. It was very interesting, a slow ride all around the heart of Cape May, with an excellent tour guide. The guide was very knowledgable and you cannot visit Cape May without looking at the beautiful Victorian architecture. I loved it, a great way to spend an hour.

“When in Cape May-do the trolley tour”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Since we haven't been to Cape May for some time, we decided to do the trolley tour and get familiar with it again. I would highly recommend it. 45 minute tour= worth the money.

“Tour - History and Architecture of Cape May”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This tour was part of our weekend package and it was a nice added extra adventure during our first visit to Cape May. The guide who narrated the tour was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and witty as well. She included the history and facts along with some interesting tidbits. It was nice to see the different homes and architecture and understand the history of Cape May but at times I felt like we were going round in circles in a 1 mile radius of the main town area. Overall it was a nice tour, they dont rush you through it and also stop so you can take photos. Note : You can not get off the trolley unless you purchased the option to view the Emlen Physick estate house museum. ( unfortunately we did not). It definitely is a nice attraction if you are looking for something to do in Cape May

“Interesting Tour”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This trolley tour is a good way to see the Victorian architecture and learn about Cape May's history. The tour takes about 45 minutes and you can also buy tickets to visit the Emlen Physick house (which I highly recommend). The tour guide was interesting and shared details about the historic preservation efforts in the 1960s and 1970s which saved many of these great examples of Victorian architecture from destruction. The tour cost is reasonable and it's something every first-time visitor to Cape May should do.
