Neither one of us had ever taken this trolley ride around the city. It was lots of fun, our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable.

We didn't use their service but had a HORRIBLE experience at a place the Trolley stops. Bob was the driver's name. He saw what happened and witnessed my 3 year old crying. He came over to us and told us about another place similar to the one we we had the bad experience at. He said he called them and... More

We have found from our travels that the trolley tours are never disappointing. Our driver friendly and knew his stuff! Comfortable and beautiful sights. Only complaint, a few plugs for restaurants, one of which we had tried earlier and certainly not what was portrayed. Otherwise very nice. P.S. I should have asked "Why so many fudge shops?"

Took the sunset history tour out of Mackinaw City. Trolley picked us up right in front of our hotel, which was awesome, no driving. Comfortable trolley and our tour guide Mike was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of history about the area. Stopped at an area park for a short stop. Definitely do this one again and priced extremely... More

I really enjoyed this tour. It was the history tour that crosses over the bridge. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and interaining. The bridge crossing was exciting. I enjoy just sitting back and leaving the driving to someone else. This lets me enjoy the bridge crossing more.

We enjoyed our one hour day tour. The weather was horrible but our driver made it great. He even went the extra mile moving the trolley so we wouldn't have to wade through the standing water. Great info on the history of the city and a great way to see the city. Would recommend!

Every time I take my son to Mackinaw City, we take the trolley ride across the bridge at night. They call this their Sunset Tour, and it is our favorite. (We've done their historical tour, too, and it's also good.) I love this ride, especially on a nice warm night because the breeze blows through the windows of the trolley... More
