See and learn about Eureka Springs, up close and personal on our open-air, trolley style trams. Each tour is fully narrated by a fun, knowledgeable local guide. The tour makes 2 stops. First stop is a the 1886 Crescent Hotel, where there will be ample time to look around inside and outside the hotel, as well as enjoying the view of the beautiful Ozark mountains and the Christ of the Ozarks Statue. The second stop is at one of the historic cold water springs. The tram is "covered" but open on the sides. This makes it great for being able to see the beautiful homes, buildings, limestone walls and sidewalks and the tree covered hillsides throughout this amazing historic district. Find out, too, why Robert Ripley, of Ripley's Believe it Or Not, called Eureka Springs one of the 10 Most Unusual Towns he ever visited in the United States.

If you have never been to Eureka Springs before take this tram first. It will help you to know your surroundings and how best to get around Branson. Tim Garrison is a lot of fun and full of knowledge of the area. Do not be afraid to ask him questions because you may miss out on a humorous story or... More

I highly recommend going on the tram tour. Tim the tour guide was amazing. As a 7th generation resident, he knows his towns history. All ages will enjoy the sites. First at the Crescent Hotel for a potty break and observation deck scenic view. Secondly at the grotto spring. Well worth the reasonable price.

The little kids loved him, the teenagers laughed with him, and the adults were impressed by him. You do not want to drive in down town Eureka Springs, you will want to let... More

Have been to Eureka Springs several times in the past but never taken this tour. The are a lot of hills in Eureka Springs and this is a great and informative way to view the town. It was worth every penny.

I had researched things to do and this was top on my list. It definitely exceeded my expectations. Our your guide Tim Garrison is a 7th generation resident of Eureka Springs. He had a great sense of humor as did our driver. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn the history of Eureka Springs.
