Hershey Trolley Works is based in Hershey's Chocolate World, and all of our tours start and end there. We offer sightseeing, chocolate tasting, historical explorations of the inspiring story of Hershey 364 days a year. During the summer and seasonal weekend of fall and Christmas, our format is a family friendly 45 minute show on the trolley where two actors bring the story to life in a uniquely entertaining way. We also offer a more in depth 75 minute excursion on the trolley, guided by one of our highly entertaining conductors throughout the spring and fall,with limited offerings in summer as well.

This is a very educational and enlightening tour. It's definitely a one time activity, but it helps you understand the big picture of Milton Hershey and his historical footprints in the area.

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.
