Kendall was an excellent tour guide. She pointed out interests, sang with us, etc. Unfortunately, there was a rowdy group of 15-16 who were not only noisy but used foul language to each other and to the people on the streets. After several warnings by Kendal to the group to stop, they continued. Finally, she had to put them off the tour bus. They were not only angry, but verbally abusive to her. She was very brave and professional.

Nice ride through town to see all of the lights. Christmas carols playing throughout the ride. Very expensive in my opinion. It is charged by row so same price if you have 2 people or 3 or 4. So for us it was $93 go the approximate 45 minute ride. The cookie and cider afterwards were nothing to write home about either.

So much fun on the trolley ride Some cars tried to follow the trolley ride to see all the sites but there are some roads where cars are not allowed Plus on the trolley ride they give you free prison glasses which enhances all the lights, absolutely fabulous This is our first time seeing the lights and we plan to do it again next year on the trolley ride of course Be aware of the historic downtown parking garage it took us nearly an hour to get out Some people at the exit were trying to turn left and the traffic was horrendous so everything backed up in the garage not a real good decision to turn left everybody should be turning right exiting the garage Hope they get this right next year The historic downtown parking garages perfect for the trolley ride
