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!

Was staying in Rochester after my transplant and took the historic trolley a couple times when family and friends were visiting. It was very educational, we all enjoyed it. Definitely worth the time.

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!

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
