I had done this trolley tour over 15 years ago and have been wanting to share it with my family ever since. The ride was a dream come true! Martha, our tour guide and driver was a wealth of information for 2 hours and a safe driver, too. We traveled parts of Cleveland we had never seen before and saw... More

While the cost of the tour is quite reasonable, location is easily accessible, and tour is extremely informative, the Silver Bells Plus Tour fell short of our expectations. By reading the information and viewing the photos online, we were under the impression that this was a holiday lights tour trip, which it was not. The tour guide was quite informative,... More

Our Trolley driver was simply fabulous. Well, of course, as a teacher, she did an outstanding job introducing us to the City, the buildings and the history. I felt like I was getting a lot of great juice, and who doesn't like the occasional great gossip. As often as I have been to Cleveland, I never took this tour. I... More

Even though we live in the city my family and I recently took a 2 hour tour on the trolley. (Full disclosure: we won the tickets in a contest). The tour took us to Ohio City, Rockefeller Gardens, Playhouse Theater District, Cleveland Clinic, and the Soldier and Sailors Monument etc. Would I have paid the twenty dollars for the tour?... More

Lolly the Trolley is a ton of fun. A must for anyone who is visiting or living in Ohio. I highly recommend taking the 2 and a half hour trip because you see more. My guide was very informative and funny. Cleveland has so many treasures and sites that will blow your mind.

We started our Cleveland visit with this tour and I was really glad as it gave us an excellent overview of the city and what sights we might want to further explore. Our guide was incredibly informative. She obviously loved her city and enthusiastically shared her knowledge of interesting facts and stories about this great American city. I highly recommend...

Four of us took the 2.5 hour tour in September 2013 on a clear day and simply loved this tour. We were amazed how our lively, informative and charming tour guide (Eve?) was able to navigate the trolley through busy city streets while simultaneously providing us with so much interesting information. If you've never spent any time in Cleveland, this... More

This is a good tour to orient yourself to the city. Although it started from the old part of the town with not much to see for about 10 mins, you quickly come to realize that there is a great history to the town. The trolley had wide windows allowing for picture taking and the tour guide is very informative.
