“Great tour of downtown St. Louis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The Trolley Tour is about 90 minutes and is a nice overview of the downtown area of St. Louis. When going to a new city, I like to find a good overview tour that will give me some familiarity with the city so that I can later explore in detail the areas that I really like. While many of these tours are "hop on - hop off" this one wasn't but did have one or two stops where we could get off the trolley to take photos. The driver and guide was very knowledgeable of the St. Louis area, and used a lot of humor to tell his story of the local history. At the end of the tour I was very pleased with the time spent and knowing much more about St. Louis than I did when I arrived!

“Great Tour with just the right amount of "corn"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We took this tour and really enjoyed it. Our trolley was full. Here's a tip; get your tickets early. The driver had to turn a couple of people away.

“Ride as one of the first activities - Free Parking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Park for free in front of the Lumiere Casino - there is a guard - just pull up to the gate and he'll let you in. You can pick up water or soda just inside the casino - to the left of the entrance. You could leave your vehicle here after the tour too and walk over to the Arch / Bush stadium. The tour guide pointed out interesting buildings downtown and historical events that had occurred at the locations - we saw city park, Forest Park included a 10-min stop at the art museum. Highly recommend you take the trolley first to give you insight to the area - where you may / may not want to go. We changed our plans based on the information we learned. Good for all ages -

“Great Way to See St Louis Highlights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

If you don't have a car, St. Louis is not an easy city to get around. The public transportation system is not the most convenient and the taxis are expensive. The Trolley Tour is 90 minutes long, leaves from the Lumiere Casino's front entrance. You buy the tickets at the gift shop. The tour takes you to the highlights, tho' it's not a "hop on/hop off" type. It gives you the lay of the land. I highly recommend it.

“Good tips for the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Was very enjoyable, our tour guide Dusty, did a great job. Lots of laughs and good information about the city. Glad we took the tour, then we knew where we wanted to go back to on our own.
