My husband booked this tour as a fun family thing to do over the holidays. I was lukewarm about it at first, but as soon as I got on the trolley and Melissa, our tour guide, started talking, I knew I was going to love it. Two hours of intersesting history about our very historic city shared by a guide... More

My sister in law and I live in rural areas not far from Richmond, VA. We do a lot of traveling but don't do much sight seeing close to home. We decided to change that and started with this historic trolley ride in Richmond. Our guide was Stephen. He was extremely knowledgeable and charismatic. We learned a lot and had... More

I was in town for a short while and wanted to get great overview of this terrific city Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining without missing a beat. We were there early December so did not run into a lot of other tourists or any problems booking. Their website seems to give a different address but we managed to... More

Whenever we visit a place that we haven't been to before, we try to take a tour of the city. This two hour tour was very informative. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and constantly told us little tidbits about the city. After taking the tour we were able to go back and see the sights that we wanted to.... More

Our two hour trip around Richmond was guided by Sandy and driven by Cleve. Sandy kept us fascinated with historic details and anecdotes while Cleve kept us safe at every stop. A former teacher, Sandy knew the backstory to every building and event. This is a great overview to the city's attractions and history but it is not your typical... More

Would recommend to anyone traveling in the DC area to take the whole tour first & then get off and on where you want through the course of the day. Only thing we didn't like was that they shut down at 5:00 pm

Emily, the tour guide and KP, the driver, were great! It was a very informative tour. My husband was born and raised in Richmond yet we saw places he had never seen and learned new things. Emily was fantastic....very interactive with those of us on the tour and really knew her stuff. I recommend this tour to everyone...worth every penny!

Great and informative driver and tour leader. It gave us an overall tour of the city and its development. It is better to go in the morning.

We took out of town guests on a historical trolley tour recently with this company. We've lived in Richmond for 20 years and were glad to learn a few things about our city that we did not know. However, there were clearly some statements he made that were out of date and some simply inappropriate. His pitch was as a... More
