Saint Barnabas chapel, cemetery, and the various homes were my favorites. Dave gave very interesting tidbits about the everything! We would do the tour again because it was that good!


Dave was our tour guide/driver & he did an excellent job. Informative & entertaining . It was my husband & my 44th wedding anniversary- we have been to Fredericksburg many times but it was fun to see the historic side & we enjoyed it.


Great little tour with good narration. Saved us from walking and the tour was free. Such a neat town. I recommend taking this


Tour guide was gracious, personable and knowledgeable. Great way to see the city. We were running late due to not being familiar with the area; Dave called to check in with us and even waited a couple minutes for us to arrive.


In terms of Viator - perfect! As always!!! Quite disappointed we got a blue “people van” vs a trolley. Definitely impacted our impression of what we were hoping for. Know this was not a Viator issue but more of a Fredricksburg trolley decision. Still disapppinting. Tour guide (Rebecca) was very good.


It was our first time to visit Fredericksburg. We walked the main street and visited the museum the first day, watched the total eclipse the second day, and, at the last minute, booked this tour! The trolley is a comfortable ride, and Dave is a fantastic tour guide! He took us to many places that we hadn't seen. He was very knowledgeable about the community. Highly recommend!


I enjoyed the entire tour. I have been to Fredericksburg many times but I learned new things about the area and saw new things


Tour guide/driver was knowledgeable about the area and very informative. Great way to learn about your surroundings in a stress free environment.


The bus was great and the driver/guide was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed the ride and commentary. Much better than expected!


We thoroughly enjoyed Dave, our tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and enthused about Fredericksburg history, and gave us a detailed tour of the city. The highlight of our tour was the stop at the black church. Gary was very informative and gave us a lot of information about the restoration of the building and the grounds. The entire experience was most memorable for us and our guests from Wisconsin.
