It's and hour round trip with a great running commentary on the town. All for a buck! Hop on hop off if you want. Highly recommended.

Took the trolley through Astoria. What a wonderful ride and it's only $1.00!!! You can get the all day pass for $2.00, which is also an amazing bargain. The people talk and give you a history of the town as you go through all the...More

The trolley ride takes you through pretty views of the Columbia River and great views of the Astoria-Megler Bridge. I recommend this for all ages. A guide provides a narrative as the trolley travels its route.

Yes, if the trolley is running, there is a stop right across the parking lot. The front desk people will help you.
