I had a trolley tour as part of my HS 50th Class Reunion. The tour gave us a good sense of the life of this beautiful city and the changes that have occurred there in the last 50 years (plus a lot of good history from earlier times). Our driver/guide was knowledgeable and fun. And yes, we thought he was... More

We had a fantastic experience with Rochester Trolley & Tour Company. We used them for our wedding in Wisconsin. Mike was our driver and was beyond wonderful and helpful! He went way out of his way to help us the whole time. We would highly recommend this company for your next adventure!

I was familiar with the hop on, hop off sight seeing trolly from a recent visit to San Antonio. This experience was ejoyable and much different. There are only 3 scheduled tours each weekend day. Therefore, you can hop off and get back on twice, at most. Each time you hop off, it will be at least 75 minutes before... More

Had our annual tour of Rochester for a Healthcare program for Summer students. Once again our driver for the event was Nick. He does a great job describing the city and the history of Rochester and Mayo Clinic as well. He has a lot of interesting stories to tell throughout the tour and even though he probably has told them... More

We heard a lot about the tour and finally checked it out. It is well worth the time and money. Finding the tickets and pick-up location is a bit vague but people in Downtown Rochester will help you find both. The guide knew his stuff and was also personable. W.ell worth the time

My husband and I were in Rochester for testing at the Mayo Clinic and decided to take the trolley tour to learn more about a city we just lived in for a week. I called a few days ahead of time and the first scheduled stop at the hotel I was staying at wasn't until 11:15. The man I was... More

We did the Haunted Trolley Tour and the Christmas Light Tour. The Haunted Trolley was awesome and we plan to do it again. We got a bit of history along the way and even got to go in the basement of a coffeehouse to see if ghosts/spirits would talk to us. The Christmas Light Tour is a great way to... More

I enjoyed the Trolly tour of Rochester. The tour includes Mayowood, the Silver Lake area and lots more. I enjoyed being able to pay in cash when I boarded the trolley. If you don't have a lot of time to go sightseeing this is a great way to get an overview in 90 mins.
