10/10, would recommend no question!

Dealing with Golden State Trolley was an absolute joy and a pleasure from beginning to end! We had our wedding in San Francisco and all of our guests were from out of town, and we wanted to give them an authentic SF experience. As soon as I reached out, Kendra was so incredibly kind, helpful and patient. We even changed our itineraries somewhat last minute, and she was so reassuring that it was completely fine and she would communicate with the drivers.

The day of the wedding, we rented two trolleys - one for our bridal party and one for our guests. Both of our drivers, Julie and George, were the absolute BEST. Julie drove the bridal party trolley and was so sweet, taking pictures of me and telling me how beautiful I looked. She was on time, patient with us as we took pictures and made sure everyone was on time and where we needed to be.

George drove the trolley for our wedding guests, and he was all anyone could talk about at the reception! Our friends said they had an absolute blast and that he even acted out "The Wheels on the Bus" for our friends two-year-old son that was on the trolley. Our guests even told us that they tipped him on top of the gratuity we left for George because that's how much they appreciated his hospitality.

The trolleys are so clean, gorgeous and well cared for, and being able to play your own music is the icing on the cake. You will NOT be disappointed if you choose Golden State Trolley!

Wonderful wedding transportation option in the Bay Area!

Our guests and we had such a great time on the trolley. I kept calling it a “shuttle” beforehand, so that our guest would be surprised when a quintessential SF style trolley showed up! We got to hook up our own playlist to it, and we had snacks and bottled water for our guests! Our driver George was awesome, very friendly and had a positive attitude the whole time, and he was an excellent driver and very punctual. Kendra was my point person who I arranged the service with and she was always quick to respond. If you have 26 or fewer guests I cluding yourselves as a couple, I highly recommend booking with Golden State Trolley! PS they have another one for wine tasting! :)

Definitely recommended!

Kendra, the event coordinator was awesome to work with! She made everything possible for our wedding. She responded back to my questions right away and made my decisions booking the company easier. We would not have chosen any other transportation than Golden State Trolley Co. It was a unique add-on to our wedding and everyone loves it. My husband and I couldn't have been happier!

DO NOT SECOND DOUBT, PLEASE BOOK AND HAVE THEM ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY!!!

Events Manager

Kendra has over 18 years of event planning experience and knows the importance of the "tiny details". As the most recent addition to the Golden State Trolley Team, Kendra is excited to be planning in person events again and helping couples bring a unique and memorable addition to their special day.

Kendra is not only a team member but she is also a client! In 2015 Kendra and her husband Travis booked the trolley to transport their wedding party and out of town guests from the hotel to the winery venue.

"My friends are still talking about how much fun they had not only at our wedding but on the way TO the wedding!" Kendra says, "the best part was that after the reception instead of being sad it was over, we got to hop on the trolley with our best of friends and have a little post party on the way back to the hotel."

Kendra's Wedding Tip: Think about what is most important to YOU and not what you think OTHERS will find important. Our priority was planning a wedding that would allow for moments we would remember for years to come. For us this meant good music so people would dance and not overscheduling the reception so we had enough time to spend with our guests. All in all it was the perfect day!

General Manager

Lisa helped launch Golden State Trolley with her experience in the transportation industry, to the hospitality and wine industry, but her passion is to bring people joy. When it comes to the happiest day of her life, there’s no question, her wedding day. “My daughter says it should be the day she was born but it wasn’t. That day there was pain and joy. But my wedding day, that was pure happiness! I was so in love, marrying my best friend, and with the gown, flowers, dancing and champagne, I felt like a princess!” Lisa wants every bride to feel like a princess and makes sure to quality control every aspect of Golden State Trolley wedding transportation for a flawless execution. As for her marriage, 27 years later her Dutch husband Erik is still her BFF. Together they have 3 grown kids, live in Livermore, CA and are looking forward to attending their own kids’ weddings someday.

Lisa’s Wedding Tip: Be authentic. Break the rules, buck the trends if you want. Create your own custom celebration, but when the day comes let it go and just shine.
