This replica of a turn-of-the-century trolley car specializes in a fully narrated, forty-five-minute sightseeing tour of historic Stillwater, and is also available for weddings, charters, and special events.
My husband and I, decided to try out the Stillwater Trolley.
I thought it was somewhat cheese....at first!.
However,we truly enjoyed the experience. Talk about a wonderful slice of Stillwater history(culture, housing, families, industry). When we went back to our B and B (Rivertown Inn), and I couldn't stop talking about our little adventure.
We both enjoyed the learning experience.
If you like history, and your open to trekking around on a trolley..check it out.
My two year old son and I were very excited to go on the trolly ride in Stillwater. We sat in the seat behind the driver!
He showed us to a seat in the back. Miles didn't want "to be distracted if he starts talking, I will be telling a story"
He was very condesending and rude in general. My two year old son started talking while Miles was talking about a house. As I was trying to quite my two yr old Miles stopped the trolly and preceeded to say over the loud speaker " I dont think this working" and repeated this 2 times. You could tell everyone felt very uncomfortable with these remarks. I few of the other passengers turned and said " well he is rude"
Miles get a clue!! if you can't handle or incorporate children into "your tour" you should post on your website NO CHILDREN. Your a complete jerk.
I had tried to book a wedding with the owner of the trolly and never have I met such a huge jerk. He let me take a ride on the tour, as he was the tour guide as well. At one point we ended up walking around the backyard of one of the B and B's--I thought it was a riding tour. While we were there I could not believe how insulting he was to the riders of the trolly. I think he thought he was being cute, but in reality I've never seen such a jerk. Half of the tour was spent at this B and B. My husband and I decided that we would never give this man money, after I told him what a jerk he is. I noticed that the pictures of this tour are by a man named Darcy, are the positive reviews here by a "Darcy" the same person? Darcy must work for the owner?
Hi this is a 5th grader,
We went on the Stillwater Trolley for a field trip and it was the best field trip I have ever been on. It is so beautiful on the trolley and you have wonderful views. The trolley drivers are really nice and they are very funny! We didn't really dislike anything except for the boys kept taking the back. But that doesn't matter. We loved the ride and the people THANK YOU!!!
Me and my boyfriend went on the trolley in June and it was so much fun! We wished it would have been longer than 45 minutes because it was so exciting! Our driver's name was Bobby and he was amazing at telling us the history. Very funny. He made sure that the kids on the trolley had fun as well as the older adults. We will be going back soon.
I love going on the trolley when I go to stillwater! You get to learn some of the history of Stillwater and you get to see alot of historical buildings. You also get to see stillwater from beautiful views. I would recommend this to others. You won't be disappointed!
Well informed and friendly staff, very scenic and loaded with historical information. I would recommend taking the time to ride the trolley by yourself, a date, or with children as it appeals to a widespread audience.
Everytime I ride the Trolley's in Stillwater I learn a little more about the history of the birth place of Minnesota. I plan to take my daughter (6yrs.) back this summer, she really had a great time on the Trolley's las summer.
on labor day, 2008 we boarded the 2 pm tour at the insistence of the nice lady in the booth. I had mentioned that I have a 2 year old and she may get tired of the tour since she mentioned that it would take about 45 mnutes. However, she insisted that the driver is very engaging and will involve the children and they would have a blast. Of coure, after about 20 minutes or so my 2 year old became restless. My husband tried to hold her for her safety as the trolly is moving about through the hills well my daugther began screaming and shorlty after the driver asked us to leave the trolly. I said, are you kicking us off and he said yes. I said nothing else and complied with his demand.My husband, myself and out two, four and six year old walked all the way down the hill in the 90 degree heat and walked over to the booth. Saw the nice lady and explained everything, she was surprised at the driver's behavior and was apologetic and refunded us. Shortly after, we heard the driver named Miles screaming at the lady for refunding us. I felt very discrminated against for this behavior and was very hurt and upset about it. driver never apologized and seemed annoyed with us. there should be a policy not allowing children on such rides othewise I don't think it's appropirate for the way we were treated and humiliated in front of the other passangers.
This trolley tour is expensive at $14 per person. They only take cash, no credit cards accepted. The tour itself goes up and down a few streets and points out nice houses, giving short histories. It just touches on a dozen or so houses, but we didn't get an in-depth look at anything. We just drove by all of them. There was also a brief, strange interlude at a bed and breakfast (the trolley company probably gets cash for making a stop at the B&B). This trolley is definitely a rip-off and doesn't show you anything of the St. Croix Valley. The trolley itself is just a gimmick to attract tourists. Stillwater itself only had a trolley for a few years back in the 1920s. It's not exactly part of the legacy of the town. Don't waste your time with this tour---you can drive around yourself and read the histories of various houses with any decent guidebook.
