We took this trolley tour as a way to acclimate to where everything was. There was some discussion of Galena history, but the tour is more about the views and seeing where you may want to go, rather than a history lesson.

The driver of the trolley gives the tour & does an excellent job. You will drive around most of the old town on both sides of the river. It is a one hour tour.

Would not have as much appreciation for this area without taking this tour. Loved hearing the history and seeing all the beautiful homes and buildings and the stories surrounding them! Recommend doing it first before you do anything else.

A little on the high side at $20.00 but we found it worth the price. Our driver was very knowledable in all aspects. You see both sides of the river from high atop the hills, wonderful old buildings and rich history. I would recommend it.

I don't think they are heated. We went on a cool morning, and they lowered heavy plastic over the sides to help keep us warm. It did keep the wind out.

I don't think so, but you may want to call and find out if they have other accommodations for people with wheel chairs. There's probably a phone number on their website.
