We took the midday one hour tour. It was a nice overview of Galena. The cost was $18/adult which was the same price as the other trolley tour company across the street. It was a nice little tour but I do not feel it was worth the $18, I would say maybe $10.

This tour was about one hour and covered a great deal of the town. But the best part was our guide, who had such funny comments and also gave us great information about the history of the town. The trolley will go up to the higher areas of the town, so if you do not want to walk all those... More

This trolley tour was excellent. The guide was very informative and knew a lot of history about each site. Helped us to know what the history of Galena is and what sites we wanted to visit on our trip.

Taken this tour many times. Always terrific. Each tour guide brings their own take on the town and it's history. Comfortable ride in all seasons. I highly recommend this tour.

We've been to Galena several times, but this was the first time for the trolley tour. It was well worth the hour spent, to learn a little history of Galena and to see the beautiful homes in town.

If you're not familiar with Galena, then start your visit with their 1 hour tour. Johnny was a great tour guide and you'll learn lots.

The tour was very informative! It takes about 1 hour and gives you the opportunity to really see the historical district of Galena. The only thing I wish was that at some of the stops we had more time to take good pics. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. I don't think the tour is really appropriate for the... More

We are believers in taking advantage of overview tours in new places we visit. So we took this tour the 1st day we arrived. Very good overall info on area & history. However, it seemed the driver went a little overboard pointing out his "best pick" restaurants...
