Description:

See and learn about Eureka Springs, up close and personal on our open-air,...

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.

Definetly take this tour before visiting the downtown area. Fred our tour guide was very informative. The tour took you down the narrow streets which gives you an insight into where you might want to park and enjoy the historic district. It also stopped at the historic Crescent hotel which provided great views and history.

We took the tram tour on a Saturday and it was a beautiful day for it. Our tour guide, Tim Garrison was entertaining and informative. I wish we would've known about following the red curb to The Crescent Hotel the night before instead of relying on GPS...lol. It was probably my favorite thing we did while we were in Eureka...

Eureka Springs is full of wonderful Victorian architecture and very steep streets, so this tram tour is the best way to see the beautiful homes and to learn about the history of the town. The tour included a stop at a big, historic hotel with a fabulous view, plus a stop at a spring. I loved the tour and would... More

This tram tour is good. Fred our guide was very informative of the history of the town. We toured the historic part of the town. We saw where the springs were and that in the 1970"s the government made them shut them down. The town was known for the healing springs. We saw some historic homes and the historic downtown....

Sitting and relaxing on the tram while Fred gave us an historical but entertaining tour was a delight on a sunny afternoon in Eureka Springs. We loved seeing the variety of architecture as we rolled up and down those fabulous hills! We would never have seen so much if we had ventured out on our own. Thanks, Fred!

We had a great time on the tour. Fred (the tour guide) was a real delight! Gave us great historical information as well as current events. You can just here his passion! Only disappointment was that you can no longer see the springs that put Eureka Springs on the map. NO KNOCK against Fred or the team company. Just want... More
