I have been to St. Louis many times, always driving, always wondering "What is that? What is THAT?" as I pass by one interesting-looking place after another. This was my first trolley tour of the city. On a trolley tour I get to relax and rubberneck and really LEARN about the city I am touring. This is the third tour I have taken in the third city. NOW, when I visit a city, the FIRST thing I do is look for a trolley tour, then follow it up by returning to the most interesting locations pointed out on the tour.

Museum was awesome!!! It had real artifacts from the Titanic and showed their appraised value. Was a lot of info to take in but loved it!!!

Sign up early; very popular. Saw sites from the Arch to Forest Park. Helped us decide what to do the rest of our trip.

This is a great tour! The driver was very knowledgeable and gave some fabulous insight into the city.

Loved the experience! From the character cards to the items even the employees where all excellent!
