This is a great way to start your visit. The trolley takes you up and down the streets showing you the sites. You can come back and visit. Tells you interesting facts throughout the town. Worth the ride

It was extremely hot but our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Not a good event for team building as you can’t speak with each other.
