“The worst!!! Billy the driver needs to be fired!!!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Billy, apparently the driver, was happy when we paid $65 for a ghost tour. He ended up bringing his rude partner and their dog on the tour and when my 8 year old asked if the dog could have some food - as the women was feeding it cheeto's (chips) - she was totally rude to me and my daughter and I told the driver what his partner said and he turned around and said "You have some issues that you need to get checked"....How rude for someone who is a tour guide, driver, whatever he is, to say something so rude for no reason in front of my child. I shall be taking this further with the Commerce in Tombstone as under any circumstances he should have never said something so mean, and over a dog that they had on the tour!!!

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your daytime historical tour. I think we understand the problem thanks to your review. Our new driver barely learned the Historical tour script when we allowed him to also drive for our ghost tour. Sadly he has adapted his day historical script with our ghost script! Please ride again soon, on us. I promise a better experience and a better trained conductor. Happy Trails!

“What a great way to start!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I had just gotten into town when we noticed the trolley about to take off. We took the opportunity to jump on and boy are we glad that we did. We had never been through town before on our own so we weren't really sure of what we wanted to see and do. This tour helped us decide where to go next. The ride was pleasant and it was easy to identify points of interest to visit later. Our tour guide, Dick, was very nice and made the tour interesting and engaging. The ticket also got us into the helldorado gunfight which features our driver as a main character. This tour really kicked our trip off to a great start. Thanks Dick!

“Fastest way to see Tombstone”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

This was excellent from start to finish.
Staff all over Tombstone were able to tell you when and where the Trolley bus left and there were several a day, leaving you plenty of time to visit other attractions in Tombstone.
It was open, so it was easy to take pictures of everything we passed. It was great getting an experienced guide to tell us what we were passing. The trolleybus always stopped where we needed to for pictures and this was great.
It was also intriguing how when the trolleybus passed someone or a car/ house, they ALWAYS nodded, took their hats off/ waved/ generally acknowledged us.
ps it was a very reasonable price indeed for what we got!

“Tombstone Trolley”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Great historical tour! Learn the history of Tombstone outside of Allen St. Very informative. Highly recommend this and the Stagecoach. Covers the whole town! Drops you off at Boothill and picks you back up. Great attraction!

“Do this first!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

Great intro to Tombstone, AZ. There is so much history to this town, and the Tombstone Trolley is an amazing way to learn about the Wild West gunfights and other pieces of the incredibly interesting history of Tombstone. Do this first thing so you can find out what there is to do in town. We could see that our tour guide was very knowledgable and loved what he was doing.

Side note: there is a combo package for the trolley tour and Helldorado town gunfights. $10 for the package, and I would definitely recommend doing both!
