Been to Louisville before but never realized how much I didn't know about the city until trolley-ing (is that a word?) with Joey yesterday. Knowledgeable, personal and down to earth, he acted as if it were the first time he'd seen the city as well... which was refreshing. Couldn't have been more pleased with the service. My wife usually drags me on these things and in this particular instance, I'm really glad she did. Thanks Joey and Trolley de'Ville!

We are a local non-profit that recruits public school teachers to the Louisville area. We wanted to take our out-of-state candidates on a highlights tour of the city, and Trolley de 'Ville really came through for us and exceeded expectations. Joey was very responsive and knowledgable, and worked with me to put together a fabulous 2-hour tour of the city. We got to see everything we wanted to and then some! The trolley itself had a lot of character and very comfortable seats. We had a full load of 29 passengers, but everyone was comfortable for the duration of the ride. We were so impressed with the tour that we have booked with these folks for another three tours across the winter and spring. Highly, highly recommend!!

We booked this Holiday Lights tour and it really was a let down. We drove by the Big 4 Bridge but did not stop to see the light show. We drove by one nice light display but the driver did not even mention it. We were suppose to see "Louisville's beautiful "Holiday in the City" nightly event at Metro Hall and Jefferson Square featuring an ice skating rink, spectacular lights and the city's giant Christmas tree" I think we drove by this but again we did not stop or slow down to enjoy the lights. I don't think we went by the "Wonderful city views from Ashland Park in Clarksville." If we did the driver did not make mention of it. The driver was more interested in getting us to take a trolley tour in the summer time. Maybe the tours in the summer are better, but skip their Holiday Lights Tour. After the tour we drove over to Indiana and got pictures and watch the Big 4 Bridge change all different colors.

Hi Tim,
Sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your trolley ride. Can you please let us know the date and time of your trolley ride so we may look into this issue? The trolley ride is intended to be a 1 hour leisurely ride with Christmas music, a holiday movie on the monitor and the seasonal lights and decorations outside. We do not stop at the Big 4 Bridge but should have certainly driven by very slowly so the lights can be enjoyed. Our one stop at Widow's Walk Coffee Shop in Clarksville is at Ashland Park and is directly across the river from Louisville where customers get a great view of the illuminated skyline. Your drive through downtown Louisville is also intended to be very slow, but not a stop. This is to ensure that we have you back at the Hilton Garden Inn right on time. Please let us know when you rode the trolley so we may discuss these issues with the driver. Thanks for taking the time to let us know.

Hi Suzy and thanks for your review of our Trolley Ghost Tour. I'm happy to hear you and your friends enjoyed it. David is indeed a great tour guide and story teller. I'd recommend his books as well.
