We had visited Eureka Springs a couple of times before but our visit in early November was the best. Not only was the weather perfect, a beautiful fall day, but we took the tram tour, a perfect combination. Our guide Tim Garrison was a great ambassador for Eureka Springs and we were never bored as he was both informative and... More

I brought my group and Joe was our tour director. He is a 2nd or 3rd generation native of Eureka Springs and he made our trip to Eureka. He gave us insight to this quaint little town that made you start planning your next trip before you even left. He also gave us valuable suggestions for shopping as well as... More

This is THE best way to begin ones introduction to the Springs. Exploring the area by car is a hassle, the roads are narrow, steep and winding. Also, parking can be a pain. If you walk, take a ride to the top and meander down through the shopping area. Uphill can be exhausting, especially if one is of a "certain... More

Our tour guide, Tim Garrison, was simply terrific - sense of humor, easy to understand, very knowledgeable regarding the history - key people and sights - that make up a unique location. He really made the Tour a fun learning experience!

The tram operators did not provide much information, but they did provide exactly what we needed, hop on hop off transportation around the town of Eureka Springs. It would have been extremely difficult to find our way around by auto, and also find parking. The tram service is well worth the fee.

In reading your review I believe you may be getting the Eureka Springs Trolley's confused with the Tram Tours. The trolley's are strictly transportation. They... More

We were placed in the very capable hands of Tim Garrison a life-long resident. A slow winding trip by many beautiful Victorian homes, the Crescent Hotel and a sunken grotto. Tim pointed out hidden sites that we would have never noticed on our own, including ground level ornamentations in the shopping district that we had just walked by a few... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review. You are correct, people need to take the historic district tram tour as early in their visit to Eureka Springs as they can. It will help them learn their way around town, and find out a lot of interesting facts and history of Eureka Springs. And, as you know, hearing about... More

It was cold but even with that it was 1.5 hours long and the time flew by. WE had an excellent driver that got us through all the narrow winding streets of old town Eureka Springs. Our narrator was a very nice older man that knew about a lot of the houses and hotels and could tell neat stories to... More

I enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was pleasant, personable, and knowledgeable. I enjoyed looking at the old homes and hearing about their history alongside the town history. We were staying at the Crescent Hotel so the stop there wasn't really necessary for us, but I'm sure people who aren't staying there were glad to see it. We used... More

Tim Garrison was a wonderful tour guide. He has a great voice and was easy to hear and understand. The tour was very informative and we got to see more on the tour than we ever would have had we driven.
