Okay, here we go. To begin, there are actually two trolley companies in Richmond. We went to RVA Trolley the day of our tour only to find that there is another trolley company and that was the one we were booked on. Not such a big deal really, stuff happens, right? One minor detail we learned later, was that RVA... More

We only had a short time so this was a great way to see the city and get orientated. A very good guide who also pointed out the best places to visit. Understand how Richmond got its name and why it was not only the capital of the Confederacy but also its power house.

BTW its in front of Starbucks . When all passengers were boarded, our driver told us that our tour would probably be done about 2 o'clock not 1... More

Made arrangements for 20 seniors to take this tour. Web site said the cost would be $21 and the tour would last 1.5 hours. We were charged $25 and the tour lasted 3 hours. 3/4 of my 20 guests left the tour early because they had not paid enough parking fees for the length of the tour AND were bored... More

I thought this would be a great way to show my cousin from CA Richmond and we went on the Monday afternoon tour 10/17. The noise from the trolley, drowned out the announcer, even when the volume was turned up. (we are not hard of hearing either). The ride was uncomfortable and seats needed more cushioning, and the air conditioning... More

We took this tour on a weekday so the trolley wasn't even half full. Our driver was Wanda and our guide was Melissa. They were both great. Melissa was very knowledgeable. We have lived a outside of Richmond all of our lives and we learned a lot.
