The trolley tour of Stillwater is always informative and efficiently executed. The driver always has a great variety of information to share. The trolley was comfortable to ride. A great way to spend almost an hour in Stillwater.

Wonderful old homes built in the 1880 have been historically redone into the greatest house tour you will ever go on. Winding hillside roads leading to fantastic homes built by ship captains and people of wealth, now redone into their former greatness.

We were entertained by a knowledgeable guide who explained local history and architecture. The 45 minute ride was comfortable and seemed to pass very quickly. We... More

Went on the trolley ride with my three kids. Tour guide (Bob) was really great and full of information. I had been to Stillwater before and seen some of the sights, but the trolley tour covered some of the great architecture that I had never seen. I also learned a lot of interesting information about the area. The tour went... More

History of the town was interesting. I didn't feel like we seen much & it was a little boring. Would be worth it if at a cheaper rate.

Narrated tour of the mansions and sights of Stillwater. Very well done. The tour lasts about 45 minutes. Tickets and tour outside the Freight House and Dock Cafe, right on the river.

Had a great tour and the guide was excellent - just wish it could have been longer! Price was reasonable for the length of the tour.

Wow, this was a really nice tour. From the river up into the homes on the hills we learned how Stillwater began and grew from the lumber industry. There seemed to be more Victorian Mansions for a city this size than I have ever seen. Its an open air trolley (at least in the summer) and really refreshing after shopping... More
