“Cruisin' on the "River"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

While I enjoyed encountering some of the local wildlife (turtles & herons), cruising past buildings on a narrow waterway (man made) was not my cuppa.

If you are using the water trolly to get from Point A to Point B (transportation) then I would recommend it. But as a tourist attraction, it is really lacking.

“Tourist activity”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

It was fun for the grandkids. Its too pricey for what you get. If you're staying at the Waterway Marriott and want to go back and forth to the mall, then it would be considered more reasonable. The fare was about $6 per person for all day. Great for several trips, but expensive for a big family and only one trip.

“Relaxing Near the Big City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Take a short trip in the viewing boat to see what restaurant entices your taste buds. A very short ride, but in a big city like Houston, it provides a short moment of relaxation.

“Fun ride for the little kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2012

The trolley is a fun diversion for young kids to take a break from shopping and dining. And if you have people visiting you from out of state, it's a nice way for them to see some of the Woodlands as well.
