My husband and I enjoyed this tour of the historic town of Galena. Doug, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend doing this as one of your first activities to see the town and learn all about it. Then, you can return to places of interest your learned about while on the tour.

We really enjoyed this hour long historical tour of Galena. The driver was very knowledgeable about the history of Galena and he also added some modern information that was relevant to the tour.

Great tour of Galena, can't beat riding in one of those old time trolleys. Takes me back many years and really makes Galena special. Old time Galena and old time trolleys. Thought the trip was informative as I have never been to Galena. Have to do this tour if you want to really know about Galena.

The staff was a bit unorganized - no one seemed to know what time the trolleys would run - but when we finally got started, it was enjoyable ride. We took the ride Friday, April 3, 2015 and I believe there were 4 tours scheduled that day. For those who wrote in that the business was closed - was it... More

We waited for a few minutes and decided to move on - a good decision as this business looks open (trolleys are parked, sign re. hours is in the window) and we were told by Tri City that they have been out of business for some time. WHY DON'T THEY EVEN POST A SIGN SAYING THEY ARE CLOSED? We saw... More

If this is your first visit to Galena I recommend taking this 1 hour tour. Our driver told us history about the town, area and specific buildings in the town. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining with corny jokes.

I do not see how they are getting all of these "Rave Reviews". They haven't been open in almost a year!
