Being the most festive trolley in all of the land comes with a few rules of the road.


  • All trolley riders must be 21 or older.  We will ID at check in.  No exceptions.
  • No glass containers allowed.  No hard liquor allowed.
  • BYOB drinks/cooler must be HANDHELD (no larger than a lunchbox), and must NOT be brought into ANY bar.  The bars are welcoming us with open arms, let’s keep it that way.  BYOB cooler/drinks allowed ON THE TROLLEY ONLY.
  • We expect you to follow all DORA policies (Downtown Outdoor Refreshment area).  Our stops will be within the DORA district
  • We will be making two festive bar stops, which will be offering drink specials themselves.  Please do not bring more than 3 drinks per person for this reason, and consider grabbing a drink at each bar to help support an industry that has had a challenging few years.  Let’s spread the cheer!


Full payment is required at the time of booking for the Holiday Trolley.

Cancellations more than 14 days prior to your tour can receive either a full refund or free reschedule.

Downtown Holiday Fun

So other than HandleBar Toledo Holiday Trolley Tours what other fun stuff can you get into in Downtown Toledo during the 2022 Holiday Season?

Other than the Holiday Trolley – here are 3 activities we recommend downtown this holiday season.

Idea #1 – Book a Party Bike Tour of Downtown Toledo with The HandleBar Toledo

  • Did you know that we still offer our party bike tours through December to go along with Holiday Trolley Tours?  Is your group down for an entirely outdoor adventure downtown (with bar stops mixed in as desired to warmup)?  Do you believe that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad outfits?  If so, a Party Bike tour with the HandleBar Toledo might just be perfect for your private group party.
  • There are honestly an endless list of places to check out downtown, and that can feel overwhelming.   That said, we’re happy to guide you to all of the best and most fun spots over the course of your 2 hour HandleBar Toledo party bike tour.
  • Cruise UpTown and check out the always festive Adams St.  Perhaps the most friendly bar anywhere since Cheers, Manhattan’s Pub and Cheer , located along Adams, will welcome you with open arms and strong pours to warm you up.  Looking for creative Christmas and holiday gifts along the way?  Wander across the street into House of Dow , which offers some of the most unique items you could hope to find anywhere!
  • Put your pedal pants back on from there and turn the volume on the HandleBar Party Bike stereo up to 11, and cruise your way over to the Warehouse District.  Pedal around the ballpark and stop by the Bronze Boar for a festive holiday drink and perhaps some live music!  Warm up with a taco from one of the many taco trucks that frequent this area!
  • Head out toward Promenade Park and stop for a photo with the giant and epically lit up Christmas tree!
  • Wrap things up with a trip to the 12th floor of the Renaissance for a breathtaking view from The Heights bar!

Idea #2:  Head to a Toledo Walleye Game! 

  • The Walleye are back and better than ever for 2022
  • Head to to snag your tickets

Idea #3: Take a dog friendly adventure to Middlegrounds Metropark

  • Your dog is part of your family and deserves some holiday fun too!  Head to downtown’s riverfront MiddleGrounds Metro Park for a hike along the river with your family (including that dog of yours!) Keep Fido on a leash please!
  • That is, until you get to downtown’s only dog park, located at Middlegrounds!  Pick a side (big dog or small dog) and let your pup make friends and run leash free!  Play fetch with your dog and his 5 new pals under the High Level Bridge.
  • Head home, pop in a movie, and watch your happy but wiped-out hound immediately fall asleep as he dreams of holiday fun with his pals.
