You may ride the Old Town Trolley Tour as often as you wish. However, we recommend you get off and on as you go and take advantage of the sights. As the day wears on, many attractions will get increasingly busy, so it’s often best to take advantage of the stops as you go. In addition, you will hear essentially the same information presented each time you go on tour, although presented by each driver with their style and flair.
Old Town Trolley Tours of Nashville operates the city’s largest fleet of sightseeing vehicles, allowing them to pick up and drop off more frequently than any other trolley company. The frequency of the trolleys depends on the time of the year and traffic and weather conditions. In addition, trolleys tend to run more frequently on weekends than on weekdays.
The trolleys go around the city continuously, allowing guests to hop off and hop on at the designated stops. When you hop off a trolley to see the sights at a particular stop, that trolley will continue with the tour, and another trolley will arrive shortly to make another pick-up.
Space on the trolleys is limited, but in some cases, it may be acceptable to bring a small suitcase on board. Bear in mind that the trolleys are designed specifically for sightseeing and therefore contain limited storage space (as compared to motor coaches.)
Strollers are allowed, but they must be collapsible and be stored up front with the conductor. Strollers in the aisle ways would constitute a safety hazard.
