We are proud to offer the first and original Historic Hendersonville Tour. (By the way, we also have a Wine Tour). This is our town and we would like to show you what makes it special. This is not a "dusty ole' dates" tour. Our 90 minute trolley tour is jammed packed with historical tidbits, oddities, appropriate reverence and pure fun. You will love the ole timey charm of the 85 year old Curb Market, the quiet solitude of the first Episcopal Church in Western North Carolina and the nostalgic Historic Train Station with its amazing model railroad exhibit. All Aboard!

Our first surprise after booking the Trolley Company for $60.00 to take us to the Winter Lights Tour at the North Carolina Arboretum, was that the trolley ride was a good 30 minutes to our final destination, we had already driven 20 minutes to meet the Trolley! The Trolley itself was decorated nicely for Christmas and the driver was very... More

Having visited many of the Asheville’s craft beer breweries, we were excited to take the Western North Carolina Wine Tours, The Wine and Dine Tour. We met the van at Asheville’s Westgate Shopping Center. Our Tour took us two different wineries outside of Asheville. Driving to the wineries, we learn some trivia about the history of wine in North Carolina.... More

We opted for the Wine & Dine Tour from the various Western Carolina Wine Tours (French Broad Vignerons). Picking us up at the Westgate Shopping Center in Asheville we enjoy a relaxing van ride to the wineries. Eva, our driver and guide gives us some educational tidbits on wines in North Carolina and its recent growth. Driving up a steep... More

Our bus was met at our hotel by Eva, a tour guide representing The Trolley Company of Hendersonville, NC. She stepped aboard and took us on one of the best tours of an area that I have ever experienced. She had local historical knowledge coupled with the ability to tailor her tour to the interests of the people on the... More

Thank you so much JustPeachy. It was such a pleasure to be with your group. It was inspirational to observe a senior group without the "senior." I hope I will be that cheerful and interested in new horizons in those golden moments of my life. Please do come back and visit with us again. I miss you. More

I wanted to personally thank the Trolley Company for the outstanding service provided to me, my wife and those in the wedding party. Our driver Zack was early, provided outstanding service and was genuinely excited to be a part of our special evening. They were very accommodating from the very beginning and were very easy to work with and book.... More

Our senior adult group loved the trolley tour! Many said that this was the best part of our trip. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and showed us lots of stuff we would not have seen if we had not been with her. And we wound up at the chocolate factory - yum!

Discrimination is descrimination. When people use to refuse to serve blacks they said it was not descrimination but that doesn't make it any less true then when you say you do not descrimination. Refusing to serve some people but serving others is descrimination. (Look it up in the dictionary) If you do not want to serve the whole community perhaps... More

Sir, I am not sure why you are responding to this tour. You did not take the tour. No one is descriminated from taking the tour. I am not sure why Trip Advisor is allowing individuals who have not taken the tour or been prevented from taking the tour to leave a review. More

A friend and I took this wine tour and enjoyed it immensely. The trolley picks you up at the Visitors Information Center in town and proceeds to 2 local wineries. We enjoyed wine tasting at St. Paul Winery, then after a bit of time to purchase any wines you may wish, we traveled on to Burntshirt Winery. Here we also... More

Won't provide transportation for same sex couples on their wedding day. Book somewhere that praises love for your big day. Good luck, Eva. Your trolley's on the wrong track, sister.

We booked The Trolley Company for a friend’s bachelorette party and it was an amazing experience. Our guide was extremely nice, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. We started with apple picking, then made our way to two local wineries. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a great visit in Hendersonville and surrounding area!
