Many of our trolley tours feature the very streets where Muscatine's electric streetcars ran (1893-1929) and pass by such interesting sites as the historic Downtown and West Hill areas, the last streetcar barn (on Heinz property at Clay Street and Isett Avenue), past and present factories, plus spectacular views of the Mississippi River. Narrator guides are available by special arrangement.
See the streetcar lines of 1917.

OUT-OF-TOWN WEDDINGS
Yes! We will take the trolley anywhere within 50 "air miles" around Muscatine, but we must add an additional charge for delivery and return when going out of town (top speed is about 35 mph). For example, Davenport or Iowa City is $150 in addition to the regular charter rate. Ask about other locations; delivery charge approximately $75 per hour. CLICK HERE for Vehicles and Prices

WANT YOUR
ANSWER FASTER?
Bookings are done on a strictly first-come basis (from my first contact with you), and the first one for any particular date can be scheduled quickly. (Check availability at the Muscatine Celebrations Calendar.) Additional charters may be possible on a particular day, but require careful negotiation with the first party. I will tell you if you are first, but I cannot promise fast action beyond that on any inquiries received after the first booking is made. For best results, send e-mail or leave a detailed voicemail message with the dates and times you want plus your phone and e-mail contact information. E-mail inquiries receive faster, more complete attention than requests for a return phone call. Thanks for understanding! -Dan

You'd look mighty fine in one of these!
