Once it’s time to get going, board the trolley and find your preferred seat. The windows are open-air, so you can enjoy the bustle of the city as you drive. Your guide gives you a rundown of the city's history and culture, as well as enlightening you with fun facts about attractions. Your trolley passes around 150 points of interest.

Travel from the historic district to Bellevue Avenue to Ocean Drive and beyond. Take in sights of Cliff Walk, colonial homes, gilded mansions, and the ocean.

Your tour ends back at the starting point on America’s Cup Avenue, approximately 90 minutes later.
