It's nice to sit and be driven around while being shown all the interesting buildings and hearing the stories connected to them. And there is a lot of history in this city which is a National landmark.

About 15 minutes long but worth it if you’d like some back story on the town and mines. The driver was our narrator and was pleasant and knowledgeable. Like I said, a quick tour of a small town - in a closed trolley

Short ride, driver is talking throughout and has good info on town but don't ask questions, he loses track and is rude as hell! Trolley is really old and drafty.

This is the best way to get oriented to Virginia City. The ride is about 20 minutes during which time the driver explains everything along the route including old buildings and mines. We were fortunate to have a driver who was a subject matter expert...More

Great overview of local history and items of interest. Rather than consulting a map or walking up and down hills, this trolley helps on zero in on interesting attractions without having to walk up and down hills or over rough boardwalks. I really appreciated this...More

THere is a parking lot right where the trolley picks up. Other free lots are around the Main Street as well - everything looks safe with easy access.
