You see little of significance except Mile High Stadium. Although it goes past and stops at the Aquarium so nice if you're visiting there. The young children love the ride. However, it's a waste of $5.00 for an adult. Yes they give a little history...More

Surprisingly enjoyable ride. Very affordable and trolley can be boarded at multiple locations. Beautiful scenery. Ride is next to river on one side and Denver tourist areas on the other. Trolley passes REI, children's museum, and downtown arena. Tour provides historical facts along the route.
