We always take a bus tour to get an overview of any place we visit. This was an excellent tour with our guide providing details and history of the area. The tour lasts approximately one hour and I would highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our tour but one member of our party was on a walker. She just wasn't strong enough to make it up those steep steps of the trolley. Some fellow guests were kind enough to give her a boost. We booked on line(good...More

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.
