My sister and I enjoyed this tour. Our driver was very knowledgeable and personable. It was nice to see all the sights and not have to drive and find parking at all the stops! A great way to get an over view of downtown salt lake.

Thanks for your review. Often the front seats are the first ones to be occupied. Usually guests enjoy being aside the actors. If you were to mention this to the conductor, you can trade seats with others that want to sit a little closer to the front of the trolley.
