Nice way to see the town and learn about Mr. Hershey. I learned many things I did not know. The guide running around town was entertaining but the singing was the corny part.

My family of five with young kids (2-7) and two adults ALL LOVED this tour ~ It was such a great tour of Hershey's life ~ We caught glimpses of all sorts of key places in Hershey's life, learned a LOT about him and the birth of Hershey the company, empire, and town. Yes, the seats are hard wood (it's... More

First off this is not a tour of the town and all the buildings. It is more of a Mr. Hershey story....but that was okay just don't be expecting an architecturally tour this is not it. But it was a nice tour of all things Mr. Hershey. Honestly if it was not for the BEST tour guide ever - WILBER!... More

First thing I noticed, having a bad back, was that between the very hard seats and the very bumpy ride, this probably wasn't for me. I had to brace myself the whole time. It also did not feel air conditioned and it was SO hot out. Although my daughter and I really enjoyed the history we heard, the gentleman doing... More

I've been on several trolley tours in the past. This was by far the most uncomfortable and cramped. The trolleys were supposedly air conditioned, but it was very warm inside, and the seats were narrow and hard--sitting on them for 45 minutes was too long. The actors on the tour did a fine job, and gave some good information, but... More

This was a very cute tour, less than an hour. Overall, a little pricey for the amount of time, but I would still recommend it if you have a sense of humor and appreciation for the corny stuff. My 5 and 6 year old did not quite fully engage, but they did like the songs they knew and of course... More

There was information to be learned from this Trolley Works Trip, but the way it was delivered is more suitable for either Elementary/Middle School level or senior citizens may get a kick out of it and the songs you sing. I would have rather had a regular trolley ride with an explanation of what happened where. Once was enough for... More

This tour was well done. I really like how they presented the history of the Hersheys. Very clever and informative.

We took the Hershey trolley tour, this was very informative and the staff that are on the trolley do a great job acting out the information and telling Mr. Hershey's life story. I learned a great deal and enjoyed the actors along the way. This is a must on your trip to Hershey!

One of the highlights of our senior's group bus trip to Lancaster, Pennsylvania was the trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania. We took the Hershey Trolleyworks tour and learned so much behind the man that started all the chocolate at "Hershey". Milton Hershey married Catherine and because of poor health, never had any children of their own. They opened up homes with... More
