We took the tour of the fancy Victorian houses and the guide was wonderful and entertaining. He gave a good history of the area and the conflict between more modern planners and the more traditionalists. There were other tours also.

Dan did a great job telling us about the history and architecture of the area as we drove the narrow streets. Provided a good balance between fact and fun.

Tour starts and ends at the Washington Mall information booth. $12.00 adult. Great way to see the historic area. The gentleman that gave the tour was very knowledgeable with Cape May history. Tour lasts about 45 minutes. Plenty of windows to see and take pics.

An excellent, fun way to learn about the area. Take the trolley early so that you can learn how to drive to places where you want to spend more time. It's a great way to get your bearings of the area.
