Travelled on a tour of Rochester sights, historical structures, and Mayo family homes. Would recommend it 1000%. Driver was courteous and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. I had previously visited Rochester and the Mayo Clinic over 30 times over the last decade and this was my first city tour. Learned quite a bit about the past, sure, but also... More

The tour of Rochester was fascinating and fun. Our guide, Dan, was energetic, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There are many sites worth seeing and a very interesting history lesson about Rochester. This tour was a really nice option for spending spare time between our clinic appointments.

We did the microbrewery tour, stopped at four locations, and had a great time! We had a small crowd so it was fun to mingle also.

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!
