This was one of the first 'tourist' things i did in the Pocono region. If you search around online and go to their website you can get a coupon for 10% off. Although there maybe others online as well. They are buses that look like old trolley cars. This might sound cheesy but it does work well. Before your tour... More

We tried to take this tour during Founder's Day. We were told that there was an opening as someone else had not shown up. The woman at the window advised us and two other parties to come back 10 min before the boarding time. When we arrived, the other parties names were scratched off but ours wasn't. When we tried...

We would like to apologize for any misunderstanding regarding reservations on Founders Day. There are actually 2 lists for reservations. 1st list is for those that call ahead - the other is a Wait List in case there are no shows. We hold reservations until the last minute in case people are caught in traffic. The wait list is honored... More

Was unsure what to expect with the 1 hour trolley ride. Was pleasantly surprised, the guide was extremely knowledgeable and couldn't have had a better personality. Some sites were hard to see due to the foliage but it's certainly out of their control. For the price, it's definitely worth taking a ride.

This was recommended by someone and based on the reviews here, we took the tour. The tour guide was nice and did his thing but the sites and materials he had to work with were either not visible due to foliage covering them or not really that interesting, i.e., so and so's house, old church, old school, etc. I found...

Great tour. An hour long tour, learning the history of the area, very enjoyable, if you are looking for something to do, it's a relaxing time, enjoyable and very educational. The tour guide we had was Dawn, she was very friendly.

We took the trolley tour with Phil. It was a terrific tour of the area. Phil imparted a lot of local knowledge with many historical pieces. He showed us photos of what the area used to look like. Phil's manner was excellent. We stopped at two lookout spots to stretch our legs and take some photos. We thought the tour... More

I think we paid $8 per adult and less for a child 3-11 and it was worth it. It was an hour tour with two stops along the way for pictures. The tour guide (Jose) was great adding the right amount of humor and knowledge of the history. The trolley's (3 in all they have) were comfortable to sit in.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our hour plus long trolley trip through the Delaware Water Gap area. We had been there before, but the knowledge of the driver added so much to the experience. Lots of history about the grand old days of the resort area, plus info about the geology, the Native Americans who resided there first, etc. I recommend taking... More

This was a relatively inexpensive way to see the area and hear some of the history. Our driver told stories and pointed out some things we never would have discovered on our own. We were then able to return to these spots ourselves and do some exploring. Highly recommend it to first time visitors.
