This is a nice little ride at the Hamilton Waterfront near the downtown. Great if you are passing through on your way to Toronto or Niagara Falls. In the summer there are bees but they don't tend to bother passengers. It offers great views of the waterfront, harbour and fish gate.

We took our granddaughter , and my mother, and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. However it's not something I could do on a regular basis as seats aren't meant for my frame, But it was interesting.

The actual ride is lovely but it deters getting off at stops when only one is running. The boat in the harbour was also broken so not a great attraction

The trolly is cheap and follows the bay front from William's all the way to Coots, with narrative all the way!

My kids love it. We go every summer just for an outing as a family. Great views of Hamilton. It' s great that you can get on and off to enjoy the Hamilton bay front at your leisure.

Every year my friends and I look forward to the summer months of July and Aug when the trollys run on a pretty much hourly basis. If you go when it a beautiful day or night, you'd swear through parts of it that you where up north somewhere. Really relaxing.
