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

I really liked this tour! You can drive around Hershey as much as you want but this tour really puts the place into perspective. You get to see the history of the area and the early life of Mr Hershey. You learn from his beginnings to his heirs. The Hershey School is presented and what Mr Hershey left as his... More

Inexpensive, and really sweet. Santa claus came on the trolley and gave all the kids gifts. Sang songs and jingled bells

The tour was very informative. Learned a lot about Milton Hershey and history in Hershey. The guide was good, however, he did repeat himself a few times. Loved the Hershey chocolate that they gave out during the tour. The trolley ride was ok. It is a trolley after all, so not very comfortable seats. I recommend that everyone do this... More

The Christmas Trolley skit was fun. Though I was a little disappointed in a 30 minute ride & no actual Christmas theme; such as decorations for this ride

We went in the fall so the amusement park is closed. No worries, lots to do. First a free ride to see the process of making chocolate, with a free kit kat bar at the end. We were then off to a trolley ride. The rise cost $15 for adults and probably most appropriate for older kids. Lots of history... More

Chocolate World draws you to Hershey, PA, but learning the history of the town and the story of Milton Hershey and his contributions complete the picture. The conductor guide narrates the tour with humor, interesting stories, historical facts, and rewards you with chocolate throughout. We felt it was well worth our time to do the tour.

We chose the Halloween trolley ride because it was the only time that worked for us but we are so glad we did. Shout out to The two Garys and Wilbur for putting on a great show. Wilbur's antics had us all cracking up!
