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.

There was only one stop at which we got off the trolley – Founder’s Hall. However, we were told by the young woman we bought our tickets from... More

If you want free chocolate take this tour. If you want to learn about Mr. Hershey take this tour. I learned so much about Mr. Hershey and his wife.

Was very impressed by the town and by Milton Hershey and his school. What a wonderful man. Not only did he help children, he seemed to help his employees and really cared. The trolley tour was fun.

The tour guide was very good and provided a lot of information. The pass out candy during the ride. I thought the price was fair. We took the tour on a rainy day but I would recommend avoiding the tour on rainy days. I was surprised that the trolley didn't have the ability for the windows to be kept clear.... More

You will learn some very interesting facts about Hershey and the surrounding area as well as how Milton Hershey earned his fame. The staff is friendly, funny, and knows a ton of facts.

it was fun to ride the trolley around and learn about Hershey. They feed you candy four different times on the trolley and at the end of your ride as you depart you get a whole regular size candy bar too..

We opted to take that tour last week as we had a few hours to enjoy and relax in Hershey on our way to DC. Our Tour Guide was very funny and very knowledgeable on the history of this iconic American company. The tour itself was not to long and entertaining enough to keep everyone';'s attention for about 45 minutes.... More

We loved this part of our Hershey tour, well worth the cost. It was over an hour and the conductor was funny, extremely knowledgeable and also gave out Hershey chocolates. The Trolley took us all over the area, past the old factory, workers' homes, past the gorgeous gardens nd we got to stop and enter the school. Bring the family,... More
