We took the northern holiday lights tour and were extremely satisfied! Our tour guide was friendly and engaging! We started off singing a Christmas Carol, which was fun. We also stopped at Santa's house and he came on the trolley to take pics and greet everyone. They knew all the best places to find homes beautifully decorated with lights! I... More

The trolley is decorated in fun Christmas cheer. They brought us all around the Rochester area looking at lights. The driver we had was great and even... More

Mayo Clinic and Rochester has lots of history. Explore it and learn. Worth the price if you have time and want something to do.

I had previously visited Rochester and the Mayo Clinic over 30 times over the last decade and this was my first city tour. Learned quite a bit about the past, sure, but also... More

The tour of Rochester was fascinating and fun. Our guide, Dan, was energetic, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There are many sites worth seeing and a very interesting history lesson about Rochester. This tour was a really nice option for spending spare time between our clinic appointments.

We took a party ride but this company is well known for a variety of tours as... More

We did the microbrewery tour, stopped at four locations, and had a great time! We had a small crowd so it was fun to mingle also.

Well worth the $15.00 per person! Driver was friendly and knowledgable! Provided insight into just how much the Mayo brothers and family have done to advance medicine as well as make Rochester a growing city with more Mayo expansion continuing! Mayo is the largest employer in Minnesota! Beautiful buildings and a wonderful story! The Mayowood Mansion was awesome but did... More
