Not enough stops. I expected to be able to ride the train to the different tourist attractions but they only have 4 stops

Hello Vicki, Due to the size of the The Conch Tour Train we are limited to 4 stops. Our Old Town Trolley may be a better fit since is offers 15 stops around the island. We offer a satisfaction guarantee located on the customer service page of our website, trolley tours dot com, under the sub heading "our guarantee".
