It was with some excitement that we boarded the first trolley scheduled an August morning in Rochester. For little cash we could get a sense of many wonderful and historical places.

1 hr overview of Rochester, MN. Includes history of Mayo Clinic, historic houses and just how the area developed. Was a great tour guide, lots of interesting stops. And there was an Irish festival going on downtown! Definitely worth the money and time to get a perspective on how a premier medical location in the US got its start.

I went with my son on a special tour organized through the ABC & Toy Zone. It was a lot of fun. He enjoyed the ride through town and the destination event. I'd recommend a family tour or another ride on the trolley.

I took the one hour Mayo Historical Trolley Tour while visiting in Rochester. It was a good introduction to the city as the tour guide provided great historical information and we were able to see the major sights of the city. The tour is $10.00 and is a hop on hop off type of bus with ticket good for the... More
