Easy way to see Med City, get on hop off and see what you want. The tour was guided and made for a fun day. This was a nice distraction from the doctors and medical that brought you here in the first place.

We had a day less than a day to spend in Rochester. This tour let us see the highlights. (If we would have had more time, it would be a way to decide what we wanted to see in more depth.) We covered quite a distance. Hint: If possible, chose a pick up spot out from the Mayo Clinic area;... More

The trolley company also has bus tours out of the immediate area. Took both a bus tour and a trolley all day tour. Had Nick as a driver on the trolley and tour director on the bus tour. Was excellent in both instances. They are clean and reliable. Was able to see and learn so much from these tours. Highly... More

We took the City of Rochester tour on Friday July 18, 2014 at 10:00 am. I pre-purchased our tickets online for $15 each. We were picked up in front of the downtown Rochester Marriott hotel. Promptly and efficiently entered the open air trolley on a beautiful morning. I have lived in Minnesota for almost my entire life and had never... More

We took this tour and learned so much about the history of the Mayo Clinic and the City of Rochester. The tour guide made it really interesting and he knew lots of awesome and obscure facts about the city, its history and sites. Loved it!

The tour was very informative. My son(17 yoa) and I had a great time, and we had a great tour guide, Carl. He took us to homes and farms. We talked to Amish men, women and kids. We bought Amish goods from people in their homes. All the people were very friendly.

We took a tour up the Mississippi River to Wabasha to see the eagles. Carl was a great tour guide. WE learned lots of interesting things about Minnesota, the Mississippi, parks and other things we saw. We stopped at a great sandwich shop for lunch, had the best ice cream. It rivals Blue Bell. Also got to shop at the... More

I stayed at the Fiksdahl Hotel in Rochester which was an official stop for the tour. I bought a ticket at the front desk and saw, per the trolley poster, that they would stop there at 25 after the hour. It was raining outside so I stayed inside. I saw the trolley whiz past at 22 after the hour without... More
