Though a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour St. Louis in terra firma style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a 75-minute trolley tour for two from St. Louis Fun Trolley Tours (up to a $40 total value). Although this Groupon is valid for all ages, children's tickets normally retail at $10.
St. Louis Fun Trolley Tours takes up to 28 sightseers on a cruise through the city’s main attractions and history-laden districts in its charming trolley tours. Guests hop on board and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of downtown while drivers narrate rides with fascinating facts concerning local history, architecture, and the historical opinions of the local architecture. With departure times scheduled three times throughout the day, the tour initiates guests to the city's famous icons and attractions, riding past sites such as the St. Louis arch, Busch Stadium, and Millionaire's Row. While meandering past the Great Mississippi or the local universities, guests can relax in the seating of the climate-controlled trolley, which keeps rides as cozy and scenic as a cottage nestled into a movie-theater screen.
St. Louis Fun Tours
An authentic trolley with brass rails and bells and outfitted with modern padded seats and air conditioning glides through St. Louis’s historic neighborhoods as knowledgeable tour guides wax poetic about the city’s past and present. Guests gaze out of the trolley’s charming arched windows during the 23-mile ride, catching sight of a much larger arch standing sentry over downtown sites such as St. Louis Union Station and the Mississippi River. Tour guides fling droplets of wisdom like handfuls of rice at famished newlyweds, sharing anecdotes about historic Laclede’s Landing and Forest Park, the site of the 1904 World’s Fair, the first summer Olympic games held in the U.S., and the first forest. The fully narrated tour departs and returns from Lumiere Place Casino on the riverfront.
