No service on the holiday weekend, which was disdapointing on our only stayin town. Lots of tourists are in town but guess it's hard to staff with volunteers during this period.

This is a nice and cheap attraction for the town of Astoria... almost as fun as the arcade on Commercial and you'll only spend a few bucks to do it. You can walk the Riverfront walkway for free, but it's long. Might want to hope a ride on this and walk one way either there or back. Definitely worth your... More

A great way to see much of Astoria. For a dollar you get a ride back and forth along the river that takes about an hour.

Ride the old Riverfront Trolley from one end of Astoria to the other, or stop off anywhere on the way. It is an entertaining and educational adventure. Youngsters love the trip and the rest of us enjoy it even more.

Just stand next to the track and wave a dollar and it will stop and pick you up. Just a buck for a ride or two bucks for all day (we didn't have all day, we had to get back to the ship and we had returned our rented car). How can you beat that deal? Especially when it includes... More

The conductors made this trip fun and humorous. Plan to have full capacity and go with someone you don't mind squeezing in with. We had a great time.

If you want to get a good introduction to Astoria, ride the trolley. This is a great activity for a family or adults. Besides getting a great perspective of the Astoria waterfront and a relaxing ride, you will hear a little bit of Astoria history that is 75% historical and 25% hysterical.

Beautiful restored trolley with witty engineer providing local history. Not only a good way getting from point A to Point Z it provides a good general understanding of lay of land and water in Astoria.
