Trolley Tours

Kingston Trolley Tours offers tours of historic Kingston, Ontario, aboard three comfortable thirty-two passenger trolleys. It’s the ideal way to enjoy Kingston’s history and attractions.       

Our state of the art GPS-triggered narration system complements your experienced tour guide: together they provide an informative, engaging overview of Kingston’s more than three hundred years of history. The Trolley route covers all of Kingston’s historic old town and shopping district, as far East as Fort Henry and as far West as the Kingston Penitentiary. 

The 2014 season begins on April 19th, 2014. Tours will be available at 1pm and 3pm.  Full Hop on, Hop off service begins May 17th, 2014 with tours every 45 minutes beginning at 10am.

Hop on, Hop off Service:

Hop On, Hop Off tours resume in 2014. The Trolley makes eight stops in the heart of our most popular visitor destinations, including Fort Henry, the Penitentary Museum, and Queen’s University; you can hop off at any stop, stay for as long as you like, then hop back on and continue your tour. Trolleys follow a figure-8 route that divides the route into two halves: you can begin with the east half of the tour, hop off at the Market Square stop to get lunch or take a cruise, then continue with the West half of the tour.
