Kingston Trolley Tours offers Hop On, Hop Off tours of historic Kingston, Ontario, aboard four comfortable thirty-two passenger trolleys. The Trolley is the ideal way to enjoy Kingston’s history and attractions. Our GPS-triggered narration system complements your experienced tour guide; together they provide an informative, engaging overview of Kingston’s more than three hundred years of history. The Trolley route covers all of Kingston’s historic old town and downtown shopping district, as far East as Fort Henry and as far West as the Kingston Penitentiary. 

Hop On, Hop Off tours begin in May 2018. The Trolley makes nine stops at Kingston's most popular visitor destinations, including Fort Henry, the Penitentary Museum, and Queen’s University. You can hop off at any stop, stay for as long as you like, then hop back on and continue your tour. Trolleys follow a figure-8 route that divides the route into two halves: you can begin with the east half of the tour, hop off at the Market Square stop to get lunch or take a cruise, then continue with the West half of the tour.
