Explore Richmond, Virginia and learn about the city's historical landmarks on a 2-hour history tour aboard a classic trolley car. Your guide shares commentary about the history of one of the oldest cities in the United States as you roll past landmarks such as the State Capitol, Monument Avenue, and St. John's Church. Choose from two departures on the weekend and one on weekdays.
What to Expect

Some of the sites you will see and hear about are the State Capitol, Monument Avenue, St. John's Church, Libby Hill, the Valentine, the White House and the Museum of the Confederacy, the museum district, and many more! Sit back, relax and enjoy the best Richmond has to offer!
