Hershey Trolley Works offers sight-seeing, chocolate-tasting, historical tours of Hershey, PA.  A quick note about reviews: Hershey Trolley Works is based at Hershey's Chocolate World, so many reviews of the trolley are embedded in overall reviews of Chocolate World.

Every tour allows guests to see the Hershey Kiss Streetlights, Mr. Hershey's Mansion, Mr. Hershey's original chocolate factory (still the world's largest), and more. In addition, guests are introduced to the inspiring legacy of Milton Hershey, an honest-to-goodness American dream experience.  

Current Tours Offered:

January-Memorial Day Weekend; History & Chocolate Tour (Approximately 60 Minutes):

The H&C Tour is an hour-long, historical, sight-seeing, chocolate-tasting tour, that travels on a 12 mile loop around the town of Hershey. An in-depth perspective of the life, times and philanthropy of Milton S. Hershey, the founder of The Hershey Company, is given uniquely by turn-of-the-century historian conductors. Highlights include: personaliized stories by veteran guides, question and answer opportunities, several sections of the Milton Hershey School campus, an exclusive stop at the Visitor's Center of Founder's Hall (before 2:30 PM) and candy tasting.

Memorial Day Weekend-Labor Day; Summer Trolley Adventure (Approx. 45 Minutes) and The Premium Excursion (Approx. 80 Minutes):

The Summer Trolley Adventure has been a Hershey institution for more than 25 years. It's a 45-minute sight-seeing tour around the town of Hershey. Two tour actors present a living history show that engages guests in the Milton Hershey story through characters, singing, sketches and candy-testing and story-telling. In the high season of July, tours are typically departing every 15 minutes from Hershey's Chocolate World™ from 9:45 AM to 7:45 PM.

The Premium Excursion is similar to the off-season History & Chocolate tour, but it gives our guests MORE of everything they love from before. There's more story-telling, more sight-seeing, more chocolate-tasting, more EVERYTHING. This tour was just premiered in the first week of July 2014, but has already been critically acclaimed. Guests have compared it to historical tours in national park areas like Gettysburg.

You'll also have the opportunity to meet special characters who bring the story of Milton Hershey to life in unique, engaging ways.
