We took the 2 hour tour & had a blast. We toured from the Flats and Warehouse District all the way to the east side to University Circle and the Art Museum. Lois, our tour guide, was very informative and fun. (And we did give her a run for her money in the side comment area!) I highly recommend this... More

A damper was put on this experience to to the odd behavior of a staff member. When I went to pay for my tickets (1 adult/ 2 children) and handed her two $2 off coupons from online, the employee (Sheryl), stated the coupon is only good for adults. I was completely fine with this and understood. Since I had printed... More

This almost 3 hour tour shows you what you need to know about Cleveland. It's history, it's people, local landmarks, emerging artists. Coll places to hang out, eat and enjoy yourself. This is a must if you are visiting the city for the first time and want to know about where to go and what to see. You won't regret... More

An excellent service, especially for us as visitors. Love that is is free, that is runs every 10 minutes and that it has numerous stops and a couple of different lines to help you get around town. Trolleys are clean and driver's friendly.

My husband and I decided to be tourists in our own city and take the one-hour tour. The tour driver probably started with a bit of a disadvantage, since my husband prides himself on the amount of Cleveland knowledge that he has. We did learn a few new things - the fact that Ignatius College turned into John Carroll University.... More

I am biased, I once drove for the company. That said, Lolly has a lot to offer. You can rent them for weddings, large group activities and other events. They have regular trolley trips. Travel the city and learn the history of the area, visit the gardens and other city sites. They have special trips for Christmas. Call! You may... More

My parents were in town and we wanted to show them the city. Lolly does a great job showing us around and telling us the history. Would recommend.

Hard location to get to if you don't have a car as you must then taxi to pick up spot. But worth it in that the tour covers a lot of the city which is really designed as small neighbourhoods with significant distances between them, requiring a car. I am used to walking around cities but that does not work... More

For 2 1/2 hours we rode in a comfortable seat with a perfect view out the open windows of Lolly the Trolley. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable, humorous and made the trip fun. He drove us all around the center of Cleveland telling us about the buildings we were seeing. Then we drove down Euclid Ave. to University Circle, learning all... More

Call to reserve a spot on this tour. Depending on the day and the season, there are different tour times. We took the 2-1/2 hour tour which begins and ends in the Flats area near the river. Our driver told us facts the entire time, so we learned a great deal of history and saw many important buildings, sculptures, gardens,... More
