Great drivers full of information to share about the city of Rochester and its landmarks. It’s such a fun way to see the city. They have a variety of tours to choose from. Go with a group or go solo, you’ll have a great time.

My family group of six took the evening Christmas lights tour. Our driver added some extra fun which was good for the younger ones. He also added a lot of interesting history of the areas of Rochester that we visited. An enjoyable tour.
