Went on the tour with a group of seniors. So much to see/do in Hershey, but I'd suggest this tour as a first to-do before hitting anything else. Such a grand story about Milton Hershey's genius and generosity. Seats are a tad hard, but the...More

We did the summertime trolley tour because we have a 7 year old child that went on the tour. The tour guides did a nice job with their skit, while informing you about Milton Hershey's life and contributions. Definitely family friendly and fun.

Great ride, very entertaining. One suggestion, book tour on line ahead of time. We didn't, had to wait three hours for it.

There are not restrooms on the trolley. However we start and end near the front doors of Hershey's Chocolate World, and the restrooms are right inside the door.
