Great tour of Rochester, MN

The tour of rochester MN is well worth the time. See many landmarks that you may not find on your own. A great way to invest a couple of hours in Rochester.

Perfect for anyone wanting an introduction to Rochester outside of the medical facilities. Driver was extremely accommodating. We took the tour geared to children which included stops at the Children's Museum, two parks (Silver Lake better for older children) and the Farmers Market. Dress warmly if weather is cold. Benches are wooden, no seat belts but travels slowly.

I was in two minds whether or not to take the bus tour. I was on my own and have never done a bus tour before. It was excellent, a good way to see around Rochester and beyond and get a feel for the history of the area. The tour guide was lovely and very funny. Do hop off at... More

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
