CUSTOMER COMMENTS – Unsolicited
customer’s views on their trolley experience:
"We really enjoyed the use
of the trolley as our wedding day transportation.
Everyone loved it! We had many comments on what
a great idea it was. Mr. Murphy did a wonderful
job driving us all around the Naval Academy. We
really enjoyed him. Please tell him thank you.
The trolley was one of my favorite details of
our big day. Thank you for allowing us to use
it!" – Mike and Stacy

"Your trolley was the greatest!
...the trolley showed up at our house twenty minutes
early – what a relief! The driver, Sandy,
was great too. She was calm, reassuring, and professional.
The trolley was clean and beautifully
decorated, exceeding our expectations. We had
a fun and relaxing ride to the church and then
after the ceremony, the trolley was there –
on time! What a pleasure it was doing business
with a professional.
Thank you so much. If you ever
need a reference, I would be happy to sing your
praises." – Karen in Harwood, Md.

Just a note to thank you for our "trolley
experience." It was the perfect start to a perfect
day. Compliments to your service for knowing exactly
what to do when we didn't. Thanks to your driver for
the fun songs on the way to the chapel (which we all
sang to like a bunch of nuts) and finally praise for
your originality at beating hands down the boring limousine....
According to my three year old granddaughter (the flower
girl), "It was the best part!"

Thank you so much for providing transportation
for Anne and Jamie's Naval Academy wedding on Saturday.
The wedding party arrived at the Chapel on time and
we even had some straggling guests join the bridal party
leaving the Loews! The driver was very nice and the
trolley was decorated beautifully! We all enjoyed singing
along with the "wedding" songs as we drove
to the Chapel. It was a great decision to use the trolley
to transport the wedding party. Thank you so much for
a job well done! Sincerely,
-- Becky Magee (MOB)

service to future brides!

Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed your Trolley
for transportation for our New Year's Eve Wedding. It
was sooooo much fun!!! Our driver, Joe Murphy, was a
perfect fit for us. He was on time (matter of fact a
little early), had a great sense of humor and accommodated
us in every way. We couldn't have asked for more!!!
The Trolley looked beautiful with with all the lights
and flowers and we LOVED, LOVED, the sign on the side
"Going To The Chapel"!!!! So cute. Your company
has been a delight to work with and very professional.
I recommend Annapolis Trolley to anyone who wants to
transport a group in the area. Thanks again for being
in Annapolis. We give you guys a A++++++

forward to a tour in the future on a nice, sunny day!
All the best and know how appreciative we are for your
calm in a storm!
