We are big fans of the trolley tours. We use them in every city we visit. The blend of music and commentary kept us laughing and singing along.

Great tour, we stopped off in little Italy for an hour and it was awesome. Try the gelato and sorbet across the street from the trolley in LI. Guides were awesome, funny, and very knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge
