Hot in Boise, very hot in trolley. Hard wood seats. Pre-recorded tour which didn't encourage asking questions. But overall, glad we did it.

With only a short time in the city, the Boise Trolley tour was perfect. The narration was great and so much history and a tour of the whole city was done in an hour and a half.
