Wonderful tour, lots to learn about New Bern. Tour Guide was very knowledgeable. Very interesting and well worth the money. If you are considering it, please do this one event. You will not be disappointed. Not for children, they would be bored with this tour.

We enjoyed the tour so much that we went home, and told family and friends all about New Bern's interesting history. A mini series should be made about the fascinating people that lived there in the 1700s and 1800s. I love Bill Hand's detailed knowledge...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.
