Our guide was very engaging. You got the sense on the tour that there are many, many more stories to tell. Having been in NC for 20 years, you can forget that New Bern is where it all got started.

This tour was an hour and half which was a little too long considering there wasn't much air conditioning in the trolley and we weren't able to get off for two of the tour stops. But it was very interesting and gave you a lot...More

The tour went very fast as it was packed with history. We visited a cementary, historic church, along with many historical houses. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was the second time I took this tour. The first time was quite enjoyable. This time, the tour was over-sold, there were no fans or AC in the trolley which caused the tour to be cut short. We brought our elderly in laws so...More

A chilly, rainy day was perfect for a trolley tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. A great way to see and hear some very interesting facts about New Bern. A great overview of the historical area, well worth the time and money!

Response from Anabelle B | Reviewed this property |
I think it was either $15 or $18 a person. Can't remember exactly but it was less than $20 a person.
Is this a hop-on, hop-off tour. How often does it leave. If not hop-on, hop-off, how long does the tour last? What is the cost? Is it suitable for children ages 9 and 11?

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.
Thinking of visiting mid April. Which hotels do you recommend where the trolley will 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.
