Spent $18@ for the tour due to Senior discount. Money well-spent! Great tour of the city by a friendly, funny, and passionate tour guide/driver. Comfortable even in late November as trolly was well-enclosed. Tour was about an hour and 15 minutes. Lots of sites, neighborhoods, and places we'd never even heard of before. Found out there's MUCH more to St. Louis than Busch Stadium and the Gateway Arch!

I was skeptical that a $20 tour of St. Louis would really be a good one, and I was proven wrong! This is a great tour on a "trolley" - a converted bus with heating and ac but looks like an authentic trolley inside and out. The tour was almost 2 hours and covered about 23 miles of St. Louis, several neighborhoods and more than 20 attractions. It's great for people who don't want to, or are unable to walk a distance, to see all of the sights. Good for hitting all the highlights and then going back to spend more time at the attractions you like. Our driver, Dusty, was a great narrator/storyteller, and he was fun. One thing that surprised me is the number of attractions in STL that are ABSOLUTELY FREE! There is no food or drink available on the tour, so I brought a bottle of water and a granola bar. Except for one stop in Forest Park, it is a bit difficult to take pictures from the bus. If you have a big camera I would recommend leaving it at home, and then using it when you go back to the locations on your own. All in all, a great little tour that I would recommend to anyone!

St. Louis Fun Trolley Tours serves as an easy, quick introduction to St. Louis' staples. On the plus side, it's skillfully narrated by a safe, professional driver, makes efficient use of time (a quick hour and a half), and passengers are protected from cold, heat, and rain. The negatives are that the trolley doesn't stop--so no getting out and taking pictures, and the price is a bit high ($18-20/person as of 11/2013). By design, this tour only offers a taste of St. Louis. This is an undervalued city with a lot to offer, so hopefully, after the tour, visitors can spend awhile enjoying the sites, history, food, and hidden treasures. I would especially recommend this tour for older folks. Pickup/drop off is at a casino, wherein you can use the restroom right before or after the tour. Parking is free at the casino.

This was a very enjoyable way to introduce oneself to St. Louis. For an hour and a half you are driven around St. Louis to see the different attractions and neighborhoods. The tour guide interweaves stories, history, and tries to be comical at times.

I've lived in the Metro area my entire life and I learned things about St. Louis and its rich heritage that I never knew. The trolley was very comfortable and Rusty (guide/driver) was very knowledgeable and humorous. As a matter of fact, this was my second trip, After telling my friends about the tour, they wanted to experience it first hand. It's just a wonderful way to see the city! Whether you're a visitor or a resident, you'll enjoy this tour.
