Daytime trips depart from 23 Orange Street. Nighttime trips depart from 47 Cordova.

From Saturday, November 19, 2022 to Saturday, January 7, 2023, the Grinch offers his own special take on the holiday, "Hate, hate, hate ... Loathe entirely," during a 45 minute ride aboard an electric vehicle. This family-friendly tour for those not frightened by a grouchy green fellow in a Santa suit, presents a relaxed and often funny way to tour the town and enjoy the holiday. 

With a chip on his shoulder, the Grinch begrudgingly passes through downtown in an open-air electric car where Christmas lights shine bright on all the shops as wreaths, bows, and an entire enchanting city of decor bring the holiday to life. As "Whoville" is in full swing, the Grinch plays Holiday music (only because it's part of his job), while attempting to share his perspectives on the season of joy. 

This trip is presented by The Tasting Tours and they want you to know that this trip does not offer wine, nor is it in a horse-driven carriage.
