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.

I LOVED this experience! Even my 6 year old daughter had a great time! It was very informational for us, even though we are from PA and have travelled to Hershey for many years! The treats of candy throughout the tour were great too!

As guided tours go, this was one of the best I have ever experienced! Our guide, a 3rd generation Hershey native, was just terrific -- even if his jokes were deliberately corny. His knowledge of the areas' history was impressive. No question went unanswered! And the multiple flights of chocolate and caramel made the trip even more delightful. Ic annot... More

The gentleman who was our tour guide was hilarious. He and his wife were house parents in the Hershey school for fifteen years! If you want to know the wonderful history of Milton Hershey, the Hershey Company and his wonderful school, this is well-worth your time. The town of Hershey is lovely and so the tour is very scenic as... More

This ride tells the story of Mr. Hershey which was quite informative. The "actors" make it entertaining...but just a tad on the hokey side.

This was a great way to learn about the town and especially about Milton Hershey and his wife Catherine. The tour was about 45 minutes with treats along the way. We saw quite a few sights and it was well worth the $14.95 we paid. The tour guide was great and he had us laughing quite a bit. We took... More

Hershey's wife was a big part of who he was and why things are here in Hershey especially the school. The layout of the town and the factories is covered in the tour. Take the tour and it will all make sense.

We were told by several people at our hotel that the trolley tour was the one thing that we should do if we were short on time. It is a wonderful overview of all that is Hershey. It's about a 90 minute ride through the town. Our tour guide was a young man, third generation born and raised in Hershey... More

Very good tour conducted by an ex house parent for the students at Hershey. He loved his job and his commentary was comical and very informative.
