Where do we board the Trolley Pub?
Can we drink on board?
You may, but you have to follow the rules. No hard alcohol or glass. All alcohol is BYOB. Alcoholic beverages must remain on board at all times. Bring your own ice chest or use ours. You are also free to bring food on board. Use common sense, you can’t drink on the street. Do not get overly intoxicated or you will be kicked off. Do not show up to a Trolley Pub tour intoxicated or you will not be let on board.
How many people can fit on the Trolley Pub?
How do I reschedule/cancel my tour?
Paddle Pub and Trolley Pub now offer trip insurance, which will allow you flexibility in the case your plans change, or if the tour needs to be canceled due to the inclement weather.
Trip insurance will also allow you to receive a full refund in the event of a Severe Weather Warning from the National Weather Service during the time of your scheduled tour results in a cancellation on our end. You may also voluntarily cancel your tour for any reason up to 7 days prior to your tour for a full refund.
To purchase trip insurance, simply select the add on “Trip Insurance” during checkout. Please note that for mixer tours, you will need to select the number of tickets you would like to insure to cover all the tickets.
Without trip insurance, all sales are final – no exceptions. In the case a tour needs to be canceled on our end in the event of severe weather and you do not have trip insurance, you will receive a credit for a future tour at any TourScale location (Trolley Pub, Paddle Pub, Tiki Pub) in the country. Currently, we have tours in over 30 cities across the US.
