So, this is my second visit and review of the Hershey Trolley Works. And because my first experience was 10/10 awesome and this time was about 7/10, my review may sound a little more negative than it needs to because the first time was SO...More

We took the 75 minute tour which takes you to a few more places than the 45 minute one. If you don't like sitting on hard, wooden seats for 75 minutes with no chance to stand up, i'd recommend the 45 minute tour. The tour...More

Not just a tour but a liitle bit of Broadway too. Very informative but, better yet, are the two enthusiastic presenters who show their creativity and excellent signing voices to entertain along the way (and the chocolate they shared was great too). Highly recommended.

An informative 45 minute ride around town with fun tour guides. The guides are in character and there is occasional singing. It was slightly cheesy and I loved every second of it. Great for all ages.

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.
