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.

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.
