We enjoyed our tour, especially the RMC campus, which we think may not be accessible without a military pass. The tour guide was knowledgeable and had an amusing store of anecdotes. We were thankful that the canned presentation was not working that day. We saw in an informed way more of Kingston than we had experienced driving around on previous... More

My wife and I took the trolley tour, and I'm not much on history but the time just flew, the driver really made it a fun and interesting tour. Also it was comfortable, more than I expected it to be.

The trolley tour is a must. It always is in any city as you can quickly view the whole place and later decide where you want to go. This is a hop-on, hop-off bus. The driver: “Bran, the guy with the beard and the guy in the ad”, was our guide. Great dude. In November, it is very quiet so... More

We took the Haunted Trolley Tour and frankly it was a disappointment. We drove around Kingston in the dark while our driver told tales of ghosts that may or may not have been. He was a very nice man, but lacked the ability to tell his tales in an engaging manner and it would have been nice to occasionally get... More

I was surprised at how good this tour was. I have lived in Kingston for 30 years but took relatives on this tour. It was well run with lots of interesting historical information about Kingston. All the drivers were not equal in their communication skills but it was an enjoyable tour into the history of Kingston and a good way... More

Always a good way of getting an overview of a city. 2 day pass allowed plenty of flexibility. My main criticism was the information given . First bus was a chap who was excellent full of info both historical and current and excellent tourist info but day 2 was quite different. Very little said loads of stuff missed out having... More

We took the trolley all over town to all the tourist spots and it was great. We also did the ghost trolley tour which we really enjoyed and the history is awesome!

The tour guide we had said that everything happened on the 3rd floor of every building. We used the k-pass, and should have spent our time on anything else. Would not recommend it, unless with the main guide. His trolley customers seemed to be delighted when they returned. Our group was actually angry.
