There is so much construction in the city that it is hard to see many things. Also, the trolley car windows aren't very conducive to seeing well out of them (short and you need to be able to look up to see many of the sites being pointed out). But they played music from the trolley car era and the driver and two guides were dressed in period costumes.

Having said the above, the trolley car itself is delightful and the driver / two tour guides are quite entertaining. They take on the persona of the characters they are talking about. I found them informational and fun.

You were given enough time at both stops you were allowed to disembark. The snack was a nice surprise (ours was water or the little bottles of coke and Cracker Jacks!)

I do recommend the tour if you want to easily get the history of SLC.

Super cute way to get introduced to SLC and the history/points of interest!! Trolley is air conditioned and the costumed staff were quite charming and charismatic! If you have extended time here, do this tour first to get ideas on areas to explore further. The operators are very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. If you had a choice between this tour or a regular bus tour, I would recommend the trolley experience a thousand times over because of the charm. We traveled as a group of 4 adults and one child and we were very comfortable. Tour holds a max of 15 participants. Great way to get introduced to SLC! Five star performance!!

The Trolley Adventure is a MUST for attitude adjustment! It's fun, a tad corny, and surprisingly full of exciting and unique stories about the history of Salt Lake City. We covered a lot of ground, made a few notable stops and were serenaded by our beautiful songstress. The 90 minute tour was well paced and worth every dime!!

It may be hokey, but I love having these guys tell entertaining stories, sometimes with improbable costumes, as we tour a city. Makes the learning fun. They were extremely approachable and a lot of fun to be with.

What a fun way to learn about Salt Lake City! I’ve been on a lot of city tours but never one where different characters from the city’s past told the story. Enjoyable for all ages. Definitely recommend!!

Loved this Trolley tour! The cast members on the trolley did a wonderful job of acting out their respective roles of historical people that were instrumental in Salt Lake City history. We enjoyed the trolley ride, historical points of interest and the special snack the crew provided during the tour. Highly recommend the tour.

Such a great tour!!! Best trolley I have taken. The 2 girls are dressed in costume and you can clearly here everything they are saying. Although it is not a hop on hop off it gives you a great tour of the town with recommendations so you know where to visit afterwards and it makes a couple of cool stops as well.

It was a great guided tour of Salt Lake City. The trolley was a nice, old fashion touch to the tour and the two guides & the driver were fantastic. My favorite part was going in the State Capitol Building and checking out the mansions. We took our older teenagers & young children and everyone had fun. I always suggest guided tours & this was good one. 10/10.

This 1 3/4 hour trolley tour was very good. Our hosts, Mabel, Mark, and the driver were all outstanding, energetic, knowledgable and engaging. We learned a lot of the city and state history in a very fun way. Recommend this tour.
