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.

We enjoyed our tram tour with Tim immensely. Not only was he friendly, but we learned the local history, culture, and color of Eureka Springs, with a little humor thrown in. The scattered raindrops did not deter us at all. There are several different routes that cover a large area in and around the historical loop.

Great tour - we have been to Eureka Springs many times, but have never done a tour. Our guide Tim Garrison showed us so many things that we didn't know about the buildings and the town. Would recommend taking this tour on your first visit or even if you are like us and are Eureka Springs veterans.

My granddaughter and I had to park at the ticket Station for the trolley at the entrance to downtown. So we rode the trolley up to downtown. It was our first time to ride the trolley and we really enjoyed it! We had a good time seeing a lot of the homes on the route. Great adventure! I really recommend... More

The tour of Eureka Springs was to excellent and was hosted by Tim Garrison. He is very knowledgable and explained everything you need to know about the area and the Victorian homes. Great idea is to take the tour first and then later on your own visit the spots that appeal to you.

Eureka Springs is a darling town nestled in the Ozark Mountains. It can be a major fall hazard to old adults or anyone with mobility problems. The solution for shopping? Take the trolley at 137 W Van Buren ($6 day pass) to stop 84 and shop down the street. Take Tilley back up and shop the other side of the... More

This is a great first-activity when arriving in Eureka Springs. The tour gave us an overview of the town and a basic sense of direction for things. We saw things we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. We wished for just a little more history or even current events, but overall this is a must-do especially for your first-time visit.

This was a fantastic 1 hour and 30 minute tour. Our guide Tim Garrison was excellent in his knowledge and understanding of the area. We could have chosen a less humid day but the weather did not interfere our learning about the area history.

We wanted to see the Ozark Mtn. Hoe-Down, but found it was closed until the end of Aug. So we went on the tram tour. It was about 90 minutes long and was a tour of the town of Eureka Springs. Tim was our tour guide, and had a great knowledge of Eureka since he had lived there all of... More

We had a blast on our tram tour. My family and I went on a tour, we had so much fun. Even my Grandmother could ride and she is in a wheel chair. The people are so nice and friendly. We are thinking about going again.

Our tour guide, Dinny Bullard was knowledgeable and well informed. He told a story of the history of Eureka Springs that held our interest and made us feel like a part of the story. We were only in town for a day, but left knowing more than enough to make us want to come back and do this again.
