We were recently in Atlanta and decided to explore Marietta including this trolley ride. The office clerk was super friendly and helpful. We got a tour guide that was not only well-educated, but humorous! The stories about the different sites were very interesting! The tolley is authentic and definitely made you feel a bit like being 'back in the day'... More

Enjoy a trolley ride around Marietta Georgia and the historical Civil War sites nearby. Tour guide was knowledgeable and very interesting. Trolley seats are wood benches and can get hard.

This tour is a great overview and introduction to Marietta. It takes about an hour. I've done it twice; both times the driver and tour guide were courteous and gracious. They do a great job at explaining the city's history and important landmarks. Very knowledgeable. The seats are wooden. Adds to the charm, but can be a bit uncomfortable if... More

When you take this little trolley ride, you'll get one full hour of treasurable history information. Marietta is full of variable information for your ears. The history entails museums, sites of historical nature, and burial cemeteries. Overall, it is a fabulous tour. Word of cautious: during the tour, the temperature on the trolley is rather chilly. Bring a sweater or... More

A one hour narrated tour of historic Marietta, Georgia while riding in a trolley. Marietta is full of rich history and one will learn all about the museums, historic sites and the confederate cemeteries. We made it a family affair with the grandchildren who fell asleep but loved riding the trolley. Fun for all ages.

This little trolley bus was quite good, however they need to spend more time on the tour. An hour is not long enough and at the Cemertry you want to spend more time to take in, disect and take some photos instead of trying to while driving past some of the monuments.

Very worthwhile time. I wasn't sure what to expect; driving around in a trolley getting talked to? But it was great, especially if you're any kind of a historian buff. The details and knowledge the guides have is amazing, and the safety of the driver was superb. I learned everything about the origin of the stones on the First Baptist... More

What a fabulous experience! The Historic Marietta Trolley folks really know how to do it right -- warm and responsive staff, excellent tour guide (Mary), and good driver (Terry). The owners should be commended for how they have put the trolley experience all together!!
