Well worth the $15.00 per person! Driver was friendly and knowledgable! Provided insight into just how much the Mayo brothers and family have done to advance medicine as well as make Rochester a growing city with more Mayo expansion continuing! Mayo is the largest employer in Minnesota! Beautiful buildings and a wonderful story! The Mayowood Mansion was awesome but did... More

I rode the trolley with co-workers for our annual appreciation for the leaders in our organization. This was a great team building exercise and so convenient as we worked in groups and did not have to worry about parking downtown. The pick up and drop off time was perfect! On our tour the guide talked a lot about Rochester's history... More

I was in a wedding and the couple booked this trolley for the ride from the church to the reception (with a couple stops along the way) and we had a fantastic time! The driver was excellent and the trolley was extremely fun and comfortable!

Tour also included down town so we learned about Saint Mary's and Mayo Clinic. The tour provides so much information I would never have known had I... More

This little tour is an excellent way to get a quick grasp of the Rochester area and its history. Complete loop takes about 1 1/2 hours and there is the ability to get off and see the Maywood Manson (as well as a couple of other stops) and continue the tour afterward. The driver/guide was a very pleasant and enthusiastic... More

From the time we got on the driver was full of interesting facts about the area! He took us all around the area. When we got off to see Mayowood he said he would be back at a certain time he was there at that time! The trolley was comfortable and fun to ride!
