“Boring Christmas Ride”
Review of Gatlinburg Trolley

Reviewed 18 December 2013 via mobile

We paid $5 for the Christmas lights trollwy ride and what a snooze. Our guide kept stumbling through his obviously unprepared script, starting on one subject going back to one, skipping ahead to another. He only touched briefly on the lights at times, but rambled on other times about unrelated subjects. The low price and the fact that the trolley was heated were two positives.

It's only 50 cents and it saves you time and gas. Our guides both ways were very nice and didn't talk too much or be rude like previously stated. The only thing that annoyed me a bit is that there's signs everywhere at the trolley stations in PF saying that the ride to Gatlinburg would be 50 cents as well, but it's not. It's 75 cents to get to the welcome center, and then another 50 cents to get to the Ripley's. They also told me that I couldn't walk from the welcome center to Gatlinburg since it's a National park.. Next time I'm just going to walk anyways :P

Overall, I will use the trolleys in both PF and Gatlinburg whenever I need it! It's the best value honestly.

Surly, unfriendly drivers or 'talk your head off about nothing' drivers--nothing in between. Either grouchy or stupid. If one is looking for the most back-breaking seats or the slowest way to travel through town, the trolleys are it.

The Gatlinburg Trolley is a great way to get around. No matter where you get on at they all go back to the Ripley’s Aquarium. From there you can get on the one you need to go to any place in the area. The Trolley is Great way to get around in a safe, warm ride.
Most of the drivers are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They will help you with any questions you may have about the area. And for the price, you can not beat it.

The trolley tour of the lights was a lot of fun. The guide was hilarious and entertaining, but also really knew the town's history and was very informative. It's the perfect length of time and was a great addition to our trip
