Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our trolly tour of St. Louis. The driver was very knowledgable and personable. He shared lots of interesting information and was very responsive to our questions. He was ready to start the tour on time and had us back at our pickup site at the agreed upon time. Our trolly was very clean and comfortable. Thank you.

Very interesting venue. The sweet spot would be for kids about five to twelve years of age. Booking was extremely easy through GetMyGuide. We parked for $15 in a building right next to venue.

Trolly took us from the riverboat casino downtown towards Forrest Park. Made a couple stops for some photo ops. Very knowledgeable guide and very friendly and helpful. 10/10 recommend.

Loved it! Well laid out and dignified memorial. Choice artifacts.

Enjoyed the sights and the driver/tour guide did excellent.
