We chose the SUV tour, highly recommend. Carrie picked us up on time and we were immediately impressed. The information began before we left the pickup area. There was nothing that Carrie did not know about Indianapolis. Upon our stop at the Motor Speedway, Carrie advised we should get out and take the tour of the track, without this, we... More

There were only two people booked on the tour and (owner) Carrie drove us around for almost 4 hours showing us the highlights of Indianapolis. Very knowledgable and extremely friendly. Great value for money, very personable and nothing seems to be too much to ask.

We toured with Carrie on Sunday, 10/23, after booking on the phone with her Friday afternoon...despite the close to last minute notice, she was kind enough to re-arrange her schedule to accommodate us on a private tour! Two of us and Carrie in her small SUV - very comfortable. She's very knowledgable about the history and culture of Indianapolis, and... More

We originally had reservations with a another competitor trolley tour company for a Sunday. But when we arrived at the pick-up place, we were informed the tour was cancelled and we should come back Tuesday (they do not operate on Mondays). This was too late since we only had Sunday & Monday available. So I researched online for Indianapolis sightseeing... More

I called City Circle Tours the night before I wanted the tour. Carrie called me back and I was the only one booked for the next day. So, the next day, here comes my tour guide, Carrie! She showed me the ins and outs of the city! By the end of the tour, I felt like I had known her... More

This was a perfect tour to take since I was in town for a short time. It was a little more than 3 hours but probably because I was the only passenger. Carrie was the tour guide and she was very knowledgable about all things Indy! I would definitely recommend this tour.

This was the BEST city tour I've ever taken. Since no bus tours were planned, Carrie picked us up at our hotel and conducted a personal tour for 2. While she was extremely knowledgeable about Indianapolis, it was her passion for this fascinating city coupled with her flexibility to accommodate us that made this such a joy. We learned so...

Three of us took what was a private tour (simply based on the number of customers that day) tour of Indianapolis with Carrie of Circle City Tours. I was very happy with this tour -- which she adjusted as we went along based on our interests and inclinations. She even extended our tour a bit longer to show some locations... More

If you are ever in Indianapolis, I recommend taking Carrie's tour first. There are museums, restaurants, a canal walk, you will not know about or will wonder how much time will it take to do this? You may pass pass monuments and wonder about them or may miss them. The monuments are worth seeing and understanding. She points out buildings... More

We were in town for a wedding and decided to stay an extra day. To help orient us to the city, we decided to book Circle City Tours. Our guide, Carrie was fun and knowledgeable and hard to stump. She knows so many facts about the city. The cost is very reasonable and it's wonderful to have a tour that's... More
