“Classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We enjoyed the classic trolley's the city has available, at a low price. We did an all day pass for $3.50, but ended up walking most of the time. The trolley is a great way to see the downtown area.

“A great way to get around but a great experience as well!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We loved the trolleys! They were practical and cheap and a great way to travel the city. The cars themselves are living antiques in wonderful condition and there were some great characters on the trolley to brighten up the day. All of the trolley drivers were really helpful and happy to tell you when to get off and where to go to see the Memphis attractions. A 'must do' in our view.

“Ride back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Romantic little ride on an old trolley is the only way to travel in memphis. The trolleys were clean, quite and set a nice tone for the day/evening. The trolleys were in restored conditions and the drivers were very helpful in directions and local information. The trolley rides take you around different areas of town so your able to ride the same ones if your just wanting to enjoy a ride on the trolley rather than going to a destination. Very inexpensive for travel and was a lot of fun.

“Brilliant experience and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Although we were fully equipped with hire car and Sat Nav, my wife and I were determined to try the trolley bus at least once whilst we were in Memphis. In fact we used them twice. The buses are working antiques and give a whole new aspect to your visit to Memphis that you don't see in any other way. The buses themselves are old and interesting and the drivers are friendly and helpful. They had to deal with non payers on two occasions which shows the level of poverty in Memphis as the ride is only $1.00 per trip and this could take you all around the loop. To hop on and off the bus all day cost $3.00 which represents brilliant value for money to get around downtown if you don't have a car or don't feel safe enough to walk and it was very evident that people don't walk with good reasons. All in all though the trolley bus was safe with security on the end of a radio and great staff looking after you that made it the choice of a lot of people who had no other form of travel and the buses are one of the best value methods of transportation I have ever travelled on

“What a ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

We took the Main street trolley one night and really enjoyed that old fashioned feeling. Watching the driver work the controls was neat. It was after dark so I'm pretty sure our driver kept a close eye on us for our own safety. Much appreciated.
