This is the best way to see the island! Alison & Tony are the ultimate tour guides! When my boyfriend and I visited San Juan Island we were taken on this adventure and loved every second. Definitely worth booking!!

Trish Healey~

A friend and I visit Friday Harbor for a day every summer. We usually take the bus to Roche Harbor, but this year we saw the trolley. Riding it was a fun change for us. I liked the open-air experience. I highly recommend it.

Jolly Trolley was amazing and made our wedding weekend very special. Alison and Tony were phenomenal. Tony had such a fun personality and all of our guests raved about his tour. What a great team and I can't say enough for what they did for my family and guests. Thank you, Jolly Trolley!! 10/10.

The Friday Harbor Trolley is great for first time visitors. The driver/tour guide is knowledgeable and you will see more of the attractions in less time. Trolley tours coincide with the ferry arrival times.

If you're going to the San Juan Islands, this is a MUST. Not only is it the best way to see all of San Juan, but Tony is a really cool guy! He knows about the island and is accommodating and fun! The videos that they show are packed with interesting information about the island. Hands down our Jolly Trolley tour was the highlight of our trip. Thank you guys!!!

The videos plus the excellent comments provided by the driver gave a great introduction to what San Juan Island has to offer. We have been visiting this island for decades and had been to most of the places on the tour and still learned many things we never knew.
