Pretty good to get acquainted with what’s in the city. But somewhat hard to hear guide at times due to city noise & open train cabs. Also only 4 stops, so quite a bit of walking required to get to shops or activities. Too much for my mother, who is 78. Wondering if other “Old Trolley” service might have worked better. More stops maybe? Everybody very nice though.

Buy your tickets Thur the train website

My friend and I purchased the two day train ride. The train was fantastic and the conductors were excellent and extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. My only suggestion is to not go through Viator as they ripped us off. We paid double the price. If you go directly to the train website they only charge $19.95 for the 2nd day. As it was we were there during Fantasy Fest and because of the festivities they cut their days short due to the traffic on the road. So we only got the train for about 2 and a half hours instead of the normal 6 and a quarter hours.

I usually take open top bus tours when I visit cities. This is much the same. It’s an excellent way to discover different parts of the city. I recommend it.
