Have only been on the Halloween tour and it was one of the best tours I have been on. Our guide was dressed in black (top hat and all) and KNEW his history backwards and frontwards. We departed the trolly a couple of times -toured the Confederate Cemetery at dusk, got out across the street from the Marietta History Museum and learned it was used as a Confederate hospital during the war and there are tales of hearing ghosts, etc at night. Learned that the Square was filled with bodies during the Civil War. We had a group of about 25, they came and picked us up at our church in Roswell and took us back. Fun outing.

I took a group of senior citizens on the tour and they had a fantastic time! The guide was fun and informative and the office staff warm and welcoming. I encourage you to support this business!

This tour was alright. They let you get off the trolley and check out some sites but you never get to go inside any of the houses and you stay on the outskirts of the cemetery. We had "Gory" as our tour guide and she was awful. The stories she told ended abruptly and then she insulted us for not laughing at her jokes. Also after she insulted us she asked for tips. Over all it could have been a cool thing but I think the combination of not being able to go inside places and having a terrible tour guide left us with a bad taste.

We took the Marietta Trolley Company tour of Marietta last month on our trip to visit a friend who recently moved to the area. There were two tours offered during the day. We took the 1:00 tour. The trolley was clean and roomy. Unfortunately, it was really hot the day we took the tour and the air conditioner had a hard time cooling the trolley. The tour lasted a litte over an hour and there were 10 people on the tour all together. There was a driver and a narrator. The driver was friendly and the narrator was informative. I found the tour okay but my friend enjoyed it. If you are interested in learning about the history of Marietta then this tour would interest you.
