We enjoyed this tour of the Galena area. The tour guide was energetic and very knowledgeable of the Galena history. Take this tour first, then decide where else you'd like to visit.

I have been on two different historical Galena Trolley Tours and had different experiences each time. Each offered unique information about the town and the various buildings. During the first tour (which I took in 2014), I was able to learn a ton about Galena brick and architecture. The tour that I just took (2016) was more centered on history... More

We had a wonderful trolley driver that was very knowledgeable about Galena and it's history. The open air windows were wonderful and they have rain curtains if its' cold or rainy. 88 degrees there today. It was a lovely time

This trolley tour was very informative . Doug, our tour guide was on top of everything. Lots of beautiful houses and many historic landmarks. The woman who sells the tickets at the trolley depot needs an attitude adjustment . No smiles, just a few grunts.
