The trolley was one of the things I was so excited about for our wedding. I had been in the trolley for other weddings I have been in so we knew to bring an IPOD dock, but unfortunately we did not have the best experience. I don’t want to steer brides away as our bad experience was not because of the trolley, but because of the trolley driver. Everything on the trolley was great until we got to our final destination. As we were unloading the trolley it was my turn to get off and the trolley the driver was nowhere to be found. Because of this I had to get off the last step by myself, resulting in me tripping on my dress and falling onto the ground. Luckily I put my arms out to help stop my fall, which I think prevented me from seriously getting hurt. Once I got up I lifted up my dress and my whole entire right knee had been cut, getting blood on my dress and putting me in excruciating pain. Of course I would have thought that the driver would have come to my assistance to help me, but he was still nowhere to be found. Before we knew it the trolley was gone. It seemed to us that driver knew he was in the wrong and wanted to make a getaway before someone got really mad at him. After returning back from our honeymoon, I reached out to Viking Tours. I informed Kirtley of the incident and how I was very upset. Kirtley was very apologetic and said she was going to speak with the owners and review our file. The company was able to work something out with us and thanked me for informing them about the incident. Kirtley reassured me that as a company it is policy that the driver is to stay by the trolley until all members of the bridal party are off, especially the bride. The owners plan to review their company polices with the drivers before every single wedding they have. Although it was not a fun experience for me, I would say if you plan to use a trolley through Viking Tours make sure someone is at the door before getting off.

I knew at the beginning of wedding planning that I wanted a trolley and looked into a few of the local companies. Kirtley in the office was very helpful and responsive. They let me go to the garage to check out the trolleys, and when I went on one, I knew they'd be perfect for our wedding party transportation. The trolley was early to all pick up sites and was such a fun way to travel from church to reception. Trolley was clean but had a bit of a leaky AC unit in the front. Driver was very nice. Enjoyed being able to have champagne in trolley. All in all a great experience!

I hired The Wedding Trolley to take the wedding party around Newport to get pictures and then to pick up guests at local hotels. The trolley was beautiful, very professional, and right on time. The only suggestion I have is to install speakers that run music through them, this would make it AMAZING! Thank you!

Great ride for a big group of people and great rates too!! The trolley arrived 30 minutes early to ensure they'd be here on time which I appreciate. The place we were taking our first look photos was sort of hard to get to so I explained to him as we drove and he was very at ease and followed my directions well. He took us to our first look, the ceremony and then brought us to our reception hall and through the pouring rain and verbal directions our ride was smooth and comfortable.

I would absolutely use them again!

We used the trolley service to transport our wedding party and immediate family around for the day so we could all be together. The trolley was a great idea because it held a lot of people. The downfall of the trolley was that it was a record high heat for our wedding and the trolley air conditioning was broken. Also, our driver had no idea where we were going even tho we had confirmed the travel itinerary months in advance. His driving skills weren't very good either.

When looking into wedding transportation, we didn't even look into limos, but went right for the trolley. We had 12 members of our bridal party, 4 parents, plus myself and my husband. We wanted some type of transportation that would allow us all to be together and the trolley was the PERFECT choice. We were able to bring snacks and champagne on the trolley to enjoy on our way from the ceremony to the reception. It was really great to be able to have all of the most important people in our wedding together and it made for some great pictures. Plus, you pick the itinerary and don't have to worry about anything the rest of the day. I would definitely recommend the trolley to anyone, and the best part is that it was cheaper than a bunch of limos would have been!

The trolley was beautiful and it got us all everywhere on time but oh dear was it hot!! The air condition was in no way sufficient for the size of the trolley. I apologized to my bridal party the whole ride to the chapel because they were dripping in sweat and it wasn't even that hot out-it was so much hotter in the trolley than it was outside. However the staff was incredibly responsive and willing to make changes for us during the planning process.

No complaints! They were early picking all of us up and the driver was very nice. We got a trolley – it picked up the guys and brought them to the church, then brought my BM's and me to the church and then all of us to the reception. We did not reserve it to get us home since we did not want to pay for waiting time at the reception.
