This was a great way to get an overview of New Bern and learn the history. Fascinating how many of the homes have been moved from one location to another. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and enjoyable.

I think it was either $15 or $18 a person. Can't remember exactly but it was less than $20 a person.

It's not hop on or hop off, the tour is about 90 minutes. It's a great tour. At the end they will let some people get off the trolley in town while others may go back to the main stop.

We also stayed at the Marriott. Trolley stops there I believe. But the downtown area is small and quite walkable. Highly recommend 247 Craven. We had an excellent dinner there.
