Three friends were visiting Richmond and decided to take a Trolley Tour, so I joined them. I have lived in Richmond 23 years and had never taken this tour. I enjoyed it as much as my guests enjoyed it. I highly recommend this tour for...More

This tour was absolutely HORRIBLE! I wouldn't advise anyone to take this tour. I was definitely blindsided because after paying $25.00, you expect something decent. This was more in the $5.00-$10.00 range. From the beginning the tour was not organized, I was expecting to ride...More

We were so looking forward to the tour, as we have done well with trolley tours in other areas. Our guide was E L Butterworth. One would think with history as rich as Richmond has, that there would be so much to be said. Instead,...More

$35 was a little over priced but it was worth it. Our guide was knowledgeable about the city and the tour crisscrossed it to show you where you can find some really neat places and provide a quick history lesson about the city. Richmond reminded...More

Okay, here we go. To begin, there are actually two trolley companies in Richmond. We went to RVA Trolley the day of our tour only to find that there is another trolley company and that was the one we were booked on. Not such a...More
