Huge Disappointment – Poor Customer Service
Julie_C, Sept 2022
I called the tour company (City Sights) an hour before the tour started to confirm our reservation for 5 people. I called again, 6 minutes before the tour started and stated that due to construction and traffic, our GPS stated we would arrive 1 minute late. I asked if they would wait for us. The gentleman on the phone stated no, they will not wait for us. The 5 of us started running to the pick-up location, only to watch the trolley pull away before we got there!!
Response from Host, Sept 2022
We are very sorry that you missed the trolley and your refund was processed. As you know, we cannot control traffic and other conditions that effect your late arrival time. Everyone else was able to show up on time. You may not have received our last minute telephone call to you just prior to leaving.

Janet_B, Sept 2022
Very entertaining and fun. All stuff were very frindke, talented. They tell the story of the past by acting it out and singing. They were the clothes of that era and act it out. Enjoyed it very much.

This experience exceeded our expectations. There was comedy, singing, great views, and they gave a lot about Salt Lake City history. Not only will I recommend this again but I have already!

I loved the energy and creativity of the story telling by all three tour hosts. The tour of the amazing Catholic church and the Capital were worth the stop.
Did not disappoint
Lisa_F, Sept 2022
This was so much fun! Riding on a real trolley and learning about the city's history is definitely an event you don't want to skip.
Tons of fun!
Beth_P, Sept 2022
So fun and interactive! We learned a bunch about SLC and it’s history. Our guides were hilarious and super talented!
A great fun time
Christine_M, Sept 2022

First time visit
Rebecca_R, Sept 2022
The hosts were very delightful and sincerely knew the history of Salt Lake City. We enjoyed their entertaining presentation!
Great fun,not like any other tour
Steven_M, Aug 2022
Not like any other tour I have been on before. We were kept entertained by the actors during the tour but at the same time informed of the history of the City
zaki_s, Aug 2022
the capital building was the best part i wish it was easier to look outside the windows at the attractions because the trolley windows kinda make it hard to look up
SLC Trolley Tour
Doris_K, Aug 2022
An entertaining tour. It was hard to see the attractions through the trolley and it seemed to move too fast. We may have enjoyed the sold out bus tour better.

Great tour!
Christopher_L, Jul 2022
The three hosts were wonderful. The Hokey education made the tour wonderful. Good stops along the way , great views. Thanks from NM!!
Great little tour!
Dora_G, Jul 2022
This was a good little tour of Salt Lake City. You learn a lot but because the bus is closed you don’t see a whole bunch. You get off at two or three different spots which makes the trip worth it. All the Information you learn is great and the performers and great too!
Loved it!
Michael_G, Jul 2022
Best option for parking is the Radisson ramp. It’s $6 and your vehicle stays cool and safe. Great tour featuring narrative information, music, skits, and impersonations of famous folks who shaped or visited SLC. Enjoyed the option to get off and go into several buildings.
A great tour… with a fun show!
John_H, Jul 2022
This experience is a must! I was on the 1:30pm tour yesterday and I just really enjoyed it. I took a day after a business trip to enjoy salt lake and I’m so glad I did this. It may be a little cheesy and goofy at times but it was a lot of fun! The conductor was my favourite. He just did so many characters and he brought each one to life. He is a great personality. However, the three of them make a great team and I loved the way they bounced off each other. The tour was informative too, and the places we stopped were not places I would have thought to stop at myself, so I really appreciated that.
Vacation Highlight
Pam_M, Jul 2022
I did the tour with my granddaughter; Im visiting from VA; she lives here. We both learned so much about SLC history!! The entertaining way it was presented kept us engaged. Highly recommend this tour!!
Best way to see the city
Yolanda_P, Jul 2022
Best way to see the city in the hot summers! Lots of stops for picture and get the history of the city with a little humor and lovely cast! This is not your regular city tour it’s live theater so there are costume changes and character changes that bring the stories and history to life!
Great Tour
Pamela_B, Jul 2022
This tour if really enjoyable, with lots of information about SLC, singing, jokes. The tour guides were really nice and so willing to take pictures for you. I'd really recommend this tour and would take it again.

Jeff_K, Jul 2022
We really enjoyed this trolley tour. The hosts were very entertaining, and they told so much history and trivia of Salt Lake City. We loved that we made stops to go into the Capital and Cathedral briefly. We’ve been on many tours and this is definitely one of our favorites. Totally recommend.
Great way to spend the morning!
Kathleen_B, Jul 2022
Lovely trip around Salt Lake City. I enjoyed learning the city’s history in such a fun way. Each member of the tour brought talent and laughter to the story.
