A tour of Winona. The driver is also the owner. Lots of interesting stuff you never knew about this historic river town. A great starting point for people new to Winona, so you can branch back out later and investigate the landmarks in depth.

The driver gives the history of Winona, shares stories and jokes and make sure you realize all it has to offer. He goes the extra mile to make sure everyone enjoys themselves. Don't miss this tour!

I recommend the Trester trolley tour to anyone visiting Winona Minnesota. Clarence is a great tour guide who obviously loves what he does and where he lives....He shared stories and historical information while making us laugh. Very worthwhile, entertaining, and enjoyable!

Clarence was full of local historical and other fun information and gave a great tour. The trolley is quaint, clean and comfortable. The trip to the lookout on the hill was well worth the trip. We really enjoyed our trolley trip.

Having gone to St. Teresa College, until I took the Trester Trolley historic tour, I never realized what was in Winona. It must have been because I was studying far too much. The trolley was brought to Winona by Trester, who died, just before it...More
