Took a ride last minute on the last tour of the day. Glad we did. It was very informative from a very knowledgeable driver/guide.

We learned a lot of the history based on this tour, tour guide had a sense of humor and knowledge about the history of Galena. This is the best way to be able to see and learn and of course not have to drive!

Four of us went on the trolley tour and we all felt that it was a must to understand what Galena is all about. The cost was $18.00 per person and takes about an hour. Since Galena has lots of hills this is the best way to see the architecture and historical sites (unless you want lots of exercise). Our guide was very knowledgable and entertaining.

This is #1 on your trip to Galena! Otherwise there is no point in going. The tour guides take an hour around the City. They will give you the history of Galena in a most informative & entertaining way.

We bought tickets to the haunted ghost trolley tour today because it came highly recommended by the guide at the Dowling House. I have to say it was awful. Our tour guide, Doug, wasted 20 minutes of the 80 minute tour telling silly jokes and reading from note card by flashlight while we sat in the parking lot. He knew very little about the true history of Galena, and even less about the haunted history of the town. We were not even able to see most of the places we drove past because of the plastic window coverings. Unless you are just looking for an expensive ride around town, save your money. I feel like I just got robbed.
