Hershey Trolley Works is based in Hershey's Chocolate World, and all of our tours start and end there. We offer sightseeing, chocolate tasting, historical explorations of the inspiring story of Hershey 364 days a year.

During the summer and seasonal weekend of fall and Christmas, our format is a family friendly 45 minute show on the trolley where two actors bring the story to life in a uniquely entertaining way.

We also offer a more in depth 75 minute excursion on the trolley, guided by one of our highly entertaining conductors throughout the spring and fall,with limited offerings in summer as well.

We ran into a significant amount of construction trying to get to Chocolate World for the trolley tour. Since we were one of the last to get on the trolley, all the seats to the front of the bus were taken. The aisle way was very narrow and folks were spilling off their seats. So we could not get to...

This tour shows you what an amazing man Hershey was, as well as what a fun-packed area Hershey, Pa. is. The bus was air conditioned and the guide informative. We had free samples of Hershey Kisses that I never knew existed ! On the tour we saw places we could go from our brochures and got to know where they... More

This was very cute for kids as its not just a traditional tour... There's candy sampling, singing, and comedic relief and costumes. My only advice is to sit in the front.

Great man. Great town. Great story. I really liked the trolley tour. It may be a little on the silly side with antics from tour guides, but it's great fun. Highly recommend this tour.

We were in town for a hockey tournament and needed to kill some time between games, so we decided to try the one hour version of the trolley tour. We hoped our kids ages 12 and 8 would learn some of the history and see some sights. However, we were not prepared for how corny the acting was, complete with... More

Went with my husband and two young children. Both kids loved the costumes and songs, my husband enjoyed the history, and I thought the actors were hilarious. We all loved the candy samples! The tour was the perfect length to keep us entertained for the entire time without dragging on or lacking content.

Have visited Chocolate World Several times but have never done the tour. Family enjoyed the tour which included actors portraying characters important in the Hershey story with drive through explanations and Hershey chocolate samples. No stops to get out on the 45 minute tour but even included sing alongs. Fun family activity. Leaves right from Chocolate World front curb.

We did the Chocolate Historical Trolley Tour and learned a TON. I thought it was fantastic and super informative. Good overview to the town of Hershey as well as the Hershey company. You also get free candy! Loved.

A good way to learn a quick overview of Milton Hershey and the town of Hershey. The conductor of the trolley plays many roles and is very entertaining. I remember going on this trolley as a child and was happy to share the experience with my children.
