What a great way to experience a part of Astoria while riding in the unique and vintage trolley. The driver had some funny, informative and historical commentary so we learned a few things too! It's very reasonably priced and worth it when it's operating.

This was a great experience. The tour guides were extremely friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. It is also a very cheap way to explore the area.

Reminded me of the old cartoon "toonervllle trolley" if you're over 65. Only runs in summer season and was rather inconsistent, but fun and certainly convenient if you are visiting and can leave your car at the hotel.

There's a mobile app that helps you know when the trolley will be arriving at any given spot (QR code scanner at each stop). $1 one way; $2 rount trip is a bargain.

The trolley only appeared once throughout the whole day we were there. The is no information of how to get on or off or where it stopped. It was not a regular service as we only ever seen it once.

Takes you by the Frite and Scoop, BowPicker, Columbia Maritime Museum and stinky seals dock. $2 if you stay on, $4 if you hop on and off all day. It's great. The benches are reversible. You gotta see the Trolley "turn around" with them. "They...More

For $1 you can ride round trip or for $2 ride on/off for as long as you want. The gentlemen who drive and narrate it obviously love this historic trolley (103 yrs old I think). It's a narrated ride and quite lovely along the river....More

My personal experience is that I have never had to wait in a long line for the trolley. I suppose it is possible, but have never experienced it.

I agree with other responses addressing trolley. There are seats front to back and you have to pull seat back to go on opposite direction. You do have to take steps up from ground to get in. Check with web or chamber of... More
