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 guide was very talented and knowledgable. The trip included information about the Hershey and Reese's factories, the Milton Hershey School, Milton Hershey's life, and many other interesting facts about the town. There was a steady flow of candy passed through the trolley as well to keep the taste of chocolate on your lips. A great experience, and well worth... More

A nice, relaxing trolley ride through the streets of beautiful Hershey, PA. Our tour guides were great, especially Wilbur. They sang songs and taught us a lot of history about the Hershey family that I didn't know. They also handed out free chocolates along the way, so that helped with the five stars in this review. Definitely recommend this if... More

We have done the regular tour a few times now and we enjoy it every single time. It's extremely entertaining (can't give away the secrets) and you learn a ton about Milton Hershey and all the great work he did. We've been with children and older adults and everyone always loves it.

I have been to Hershey,PA 3 times but this was my first time on the Trolley Tour. My husband had never been and this was an excellent way to combine the life and story of Milton and Catherine Hershey plus see the important sites throughout the town. The tour can range from 45 -75 minutes depending on if you go... More

My husband & I took the tour to get the history of Hershey completely and were very surprised by it. The tour across the town and learning about the Milton School was amazing. I had never heard of the school, Wow!

The trolley tour hit the highlights of Hershey and the story behind Milton Hershey and his wife, worth the time to enjoy a little history that has touched so many children, and employees many in Hershey. All of those who work for Hershey seem to be very happy and extremely helpful.

This was the best way to see the town, learn about Mr. Hershey and eat chocolates. The guides were informative and fun. I was able to sit back, relax, learn, and indulge in candies. What could be better?
