My husband and I surprised my father with a tour of Amish-owned businesses located in SE Minnesota. The tour guide was very friendly, knew each of the families whose homes/businesses we visited, and made a point of knowing each tour go-er's name. The tour included stopping at an Amish-owned green house, carpentry shop, rug-maker's home, and chocolatier's farmhouse. The tour... More

This 75 minute tour of the Rochester area provided a lot of historical information and gave you a good idea of the area's attractions. There is the opportunity to jump off for a while to visit some of the sites, including a local mall. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.

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. The tour about the city was great and we were pleased about the stop at Mayowood. However, because of a concession made to some tourists who delayed the departure,... More

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.

This $10 trolley tour of the city of Rochester was a great way to see the sights and hear the history. However, we didn't get the full tour and were disappointed not to have been taken down the historical Mayowood Mansion corridor...so, we drove there on our own the next day. Look up the Mayowood Mansion tour schedule--I recommend taking... More

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.
