This was one of the first 'tourist' things i did in the Pocono region. If you search around online and go to their website you can get a coupon for 10% off. Although there maybe others online as well.
They are buses that look like old trolley cars. This might sound cheesy but it does work well. Before your tour use the bathroom on site (Portable bathroom) as whilst there are stops along the way none have bathroom facilities and there are none on the trolleys.
There is food on site and a well stocked gift shop, there is also a load of flyers you can pick up there for money off at other attractions nearby. Indeed your ticket gets you discounts with local businesses anyway. There is mini-golf on site, it's not state of the art but will keep your kids amused.
Anyhow on with the tour, the buses don't have air con on them but the windows do all drop down trolley bus style to give reasonable ventilation. The guide seemed pretty knowledgeable about the areas history. He gives a good running commentary and points out sites of interest and relays their history to you as you drive along. He also stopped in several places and you could get out if you wanted to, the stop overlooking the gap is worth getting out for a photo opp. Be aware that at some times of year (We've done the tour again with visiting family) trees/bushes/leaves can partially obscure the view of a couple of sites but not many.
We learnt a lot from the guide about the areas history (Very popular with Jackie Gleason and co). My daughter aged 5 loved it both times.
Note the trolleys run to much later on in the 'season' than other PA tourist businesses. Free parking on site - my tip - pick somewhere shady!
Lastly the 'Apple Pie Bakery' just a stones throw away is 'Highly' recommended! I now drive an hour just to buy my pies from there! It's not on Trip Advisor so I can't review it!
We never had trouble getting on but I see from other reviews that it may get very busy at times so worth a call to them
