Good tour would recommend it to friends and family, very educational and interesting as well as entertaining
The Trolly Tour was very informative of the different historic sites in Salt Lake City and the guide was hilariously funny with his performance of the different characters in the stories. I highly recommend it :)
Tour was very informative and tour guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. He provided free water and soft drinks and even boxes of Cracker Jacks! Excellent way to spend 90 minutes.
VERY NICE! GREAT GUIDE AND INFORMATION!!!
The trolley itself was super cute and clean, snacks were even provided. The tour driver/guide was quite knowledgeable and very friendly. I gave only 4 stars because there was a particular historical event that the driver/guide was telling us about that didn't sound right to me I'm a history fan. I later Googled the information and in fact the driver/guide was incorrect. It wasn't a huge deal but it makes me question the validity of some of what I was told.
My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. It told about Salt Lake City came to be and thrive. I learned many things. Our tour guide was very informative, funny and helpful. I would recommend it and have to others in the B and B we are staying at.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the city, and a wonderful bonus was going to the convention center and seeing and listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, accompanied by the amazing Salt Lake City orchestra and a magnificent, hug get organ.
Although the tour was quite good overall there were two issues which would keep me from recommending it. They were with the driver. First, we had a tour at 10:00 and my confirming email said 10:00. I left our hotel planning to be there by 9:45 and was almost there - at 9:37 - when the driver called. I was using the phone for directions in uptown Salt Lake City but took the call. He asked if I wasn't scheduled for a tour and I said yes. He said I was supposed to be there at 9:30. I said I was almost there and needed the phone for directions. He continued to tell me, rudely, I was late and my instructions said to be there at 9:30. I said no they didn't and I needed the phone for my directions. He started to repeat himself and I said I needed the phone for directions and hung up. We arrived by 9:45 and were the only ones on the trolley at the pickup point. He told me again I was late and I showed him my confirming email and the link I was to use as voucher. No where did it mention 9:30. He said I should have read it when I made the reservations. I explained I had not seen any mention of 9:30. He did not accept this and I felt like getting off the trolley but we had paid 66 and wanted the tour. The second problem occurred after we had picked up the other tour members and had come to a street art installation of many signs. He complained that the city had taken out a perfectly good water fall and spent some exhirbitant amount of money on this 'art'. I said I liked it. He said it could have been done by anyone including himself. I said 'but you didn't' which is the only gentle way I could think of to disagree with him. I felt irritated because this was a tour for us to see Salt Lake City, not hear some opinionated guy tell us what is wrong with contemporary art. In all fairness, my sister enjoyed him very much and told him. I suggested a 15 tip because he had gone over time and she enjoyed him. If I had been on my own I would have given him nothing.
