I went with some friends a few weekends ago for a birthday party for the first time and had a blast! I’ve seen people on the Trolley Pubs for several years now and have never had a chance to go, but I highly recommend it! Our driver/guide was Patrick and he did a phenomenal job. He gave us history of the downtown Raleigh area, gave us great bar recommendations, and was very friendly and easy going. Unfortunately one of our friends lost her phone during the tour, but with his and another driver/guide’s help and accommodation to the situation we managed to find it. So if you go, ask for Patrick, he does an awesome job!

Visit the Routes page for details. Just let your driver know where you would like to stop at the start of the tour. Most groups make two stops and stay 25-30 minutes at each stop. These stops will vary based on the group on board, rider requests, and the driver’s discretion.

Isn’t it hard to pedal?
It’s not too bad! We have had groups of all 70+ seniors pedal just fine. If they can do it, you can do it!!!
What if it rains?
Trolley Pub operates rain or shine! If its going to rain, we recommend bringing rain jackets and/or ponchos. It’s still a lot of fun- think of it as an adventure. We only cancel tours if there are unsafe conditions.

You may only drink at the stops, we cannot see any visible alcohol packaging. Bring your own ice chest or use ours. You are also free to bring food on board.

How do I reschedule/cancel my tour?

Paddle Pub/Trolley Pub now offers 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.

There is a weight limit of 275 lbs for the safety of our guests.
