When we were in New Bern, NC for the New Year's Eve weekend to bring in the New Year of 2017, we took this Trolley Ride Tour, and it was a wonderful ride. We were not sure if it was going to be an open car or enclosed car Trolley, so we dressed warmly, because it was a bit cold... More

We had scheduled our tour and time on line with great ease and convenience and that experience continued throughout . We actually picked up the trolley at its first hotel stop...where we were staying...because we had some unexpected time to spare. Our driver was most accommodating so we were off to a good start! Once we had picked up the... More

Prior to leaving for the Trolley Tour we wrote the address down, double checked it and put it into our gps. The address took us to some warehouse in the middle of no where. We checked another site, got another address which took us to a travel agency on Middle Street (the address listed here on tripadvisor). Wrong again! The... More

This 1.5 hour trolley tour is great (and now they use a trolley with windows that has air conditioning and heating so taking it in any weather condition is not a problem). The tour guide gives an entertaining talk about the various historical homes and buildings. Well worth your time, even if you have taken it in the past.

My wife and I recently visited New Bern, NC, and had a delightful time. We had the opportunity to visit the town two years earlier on our way home to TN. Albeit, it was a brief visit we vowed we would return to see more of this quaint southern hamlet. The trolley tour provided an excellent opportunity for us to... More

We booked our tour on-line and had the trolley pick us up at Baker's Kitchen. (After a yummy breakfast!). I live in New Bern, but had a friend visiting. I was surprised to see that the trolley was full. We were able to ride in the new trolley, which is air conditioned. It was a very informative tour and I... More
