My hubby rented a trolley for my 30th bday and we took the winery tour. One of the best times I've ever had...friends and family STILL talking about it! Great idea for wedding parties in Rochester!

We were in town for some medical care and had one day between appointments. It was a beautiful day so we checked TripAdvisor for things to do. The Trolley sounded good because we've had good results in other cities. This was no exception. We met the trolley at the Historical Museum because it has free parking. Our trolley driver was...

My mother and I took the trolley tour to kill time on one of our Saturdays in town. It was a relatively inexpensive way to learn the lay of the land. The driver offered humor and history at each of the stops. You do have the option of leaving the trolley and visiting areas to then be picked up by... More

The driver was very friendly and knew his town. Wish we could have used our credit card for purchase. This is 2015 after all - where merchants have a wireless credit card processer...except this trolley. The tour was a nice drive around town as we learned about Rochester and the importance of the Mayo Clinic to the city. I wanted... More

Dan at the Trolly tours and our tour guide were so great! They were accommodating and worked with us to get us to another tour of a historic mansion then back to our hotel by a certain time. The Trolly itself was adorable, comfortable, fun, easy to hear the guide, and had great views out both sides. I never knew... More

The tour lasts about an hour and a half and takes you around town to see various sites. It becomes obvious that the town is there because of the Mayo Clinic. There are several "get off" spots but nothing to really keep your interest for the hour plus until the next trolly comes along. The tour is interesting and you... More

I was very disappointed in this tour. The driver kept referring to notes, even tough he said he had been doing this for 2 years!! It was disconcerting, especially while he was driving. The speakers were not working in the back and we could not here anything. On Sun. There are only 2 spots to hop off, Apache Mall and... More

If you want to see a bit of the city while in Rochester without driving your car around town, you might want to hop on one of the red trolleys and have a relaxing tour of the city. I think it is well worth it!

When I first heard about a trolley company coming to my fair city of Rochester, Minnesota, I was soooo excited to say the least! Rochester literally has nothing to do and to have a trend setting TROLLEY come to town was amazing. Me and a former boyfriend grabbed tickets on our soonest day off and got picked up near St....

The city tour of Rochester was great...very informative! Also went on a fun wine tour in MN and WI and did the Christmas lights tour.
