“Totally worthwhile!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

My husband and I took the two hour trolley tour, and totally enjoyed the experience. Our driver was wonderful, the pace was just right, and I believe we made about 5 or 6 stops along the way. Our ranger/tour guide, Tim, is a retired geologist and had so many interesting facts to share about how the lake was formed, etc. We really enjoyed our tour.

“Driving Tour”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

This two hour trip around the rim of Crater Lake affords beautiful views and outstanding information provided by a Ranger. The information is both informative and interesting but not overdone so that you never feel as if you're on overload. There are about four or five stops to give different views. The Ranger is also available and more than willing to respond to specific questions. Ours was also very helpful in taking family photos for people. This was well worth the cost.

“excellent ranger guided trip”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

4 of us took the ranger guided trolley tour with a number of stops to see the scenic vistas and learn about each thig we were viewing.
The pace was excellent, plenty of time to see all the attractions and take photos. the whole trip of the rim took about 2 hours.

The trolley is easy to get on and off if able bodied, challenging if physcial hadcapped.

“Ranger guided tour”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This trolley company is the only one in the park. A park ranger was our guide along the tour and pointed out many things that you would probably not know or read on your own. It is nice to sit back and enjoy the ride and learn something rather than try to stop, park, read, and drive all on your own. You can make reservations ahead of time if you know when you will be there. I recommend this activity. Good for all ages.

“Fun and educational tour”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We had originally planned to drive around the rim on our own but so glad we did the trolly tour instead. The large windows allowed easy viewing of all the beautiful vistas and even though we sat in the back we all could hear the tour guide perfectly. The friendly volunteer ranger who was our guide gave an exceptional explanation of how the lake was formed, history, flora and fauna, geology...basically everything about the lake and surrounding area and even showed pictures and passed around a lake clarity measuring device. Everyone on our tour asked lots of questions and the ranger thoughtfully answered each one. All the stops where we got off the trolly were scenic and the guide further elaborated on its noteworthiness. After the tour ended and now understanding more of the area truly gave me a deeper appreciation of the lake.
