Hershey Trolley Works is based in Hershey's Chocolate World, and all of our tours start and end there. We offer sightseeing, chocolate tasting, historical explorations of the inspiring story of Hershey 364 days a year. During the summer and seasonal weekend of fall and Christmas, our format is a family friendly 45 minute show on the trolley where two actors bring the story to life in a uniquely entertaining way. We also offer a more in depth 75 minute excursion on the trolley, guided by one of our highly entertaining conductors throughout the spring and fall,with limited offerings in summer as well.

Our Experience: This trolley ride is a scripted informational ride about Wilton Hershey. It only drives you by places discussed during the script. You are not allowed to get off the trolley. If you are sitting on the left side of the bus, you can't even see the house he built for his wife and himself. Since the entertainers are... More

We had never been to Hershey and we decided on doing the Trolley Tour. It was kind of cheesy but actually interesting- if you like local history, which I do. I learned quite a bit about Milton Hershey and the town. It was also a very nice break in the day from the crowds at Hershey Chocolate World.

We did this at Christmas with a large portion of our family. They gave us a group discount, got us all on the same trolley and it was a great time for the 4-95 year olds.

Pretty cheesy, but would be good with kids. They do give you a few free pieces of candy along the way.

All of my kids liked it. 8, 5 & 4 year old. But I think they liked it because they got chocolate bar throughout the ride. I would recommend to take a ride at least once.

Have taken this tour a few times. A fun way to spend either 45 minutes or 70 minutes depending on the tour. Learned quite a bit about Milton Hershey and the area. Price was I believe less than $15 per person for the 45 minute one. Wished they had more than a couple of the longer tours each day.

I learned a lot of the history of the city of Hershey (such as the actual name of the city is Derry Township). The trolley narrators were very knowledgable and also handed out chocolate at the different stops.

After being to the park and chocolate world many times before, we decided to take a different tour and hop on the trolley. Our experience was well worth the admission cost. We were treated to a great performance by all actors who told the story of Hershey through many characters. The sampling of candy was an extra special sweetness for... More

The hour and half trolley ride was excellent. We learned so much about Milton Hershey and are amazed that a movie hasn't been made about him. Very interesting and they pass around plenty of chocolate!

Took this tour with the family. It is very entertaining and informative. The tour guides act out several characters and make it very interesting. They also hand out free chocolate on the ride. The trolley was air conditioned. Located at Hershey's Chocolate World.
