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.

You learn the history of chocolate, you also learn Milton Hershey and his wife "Kitty" live stories. You receive chocolate during the ride and a full chocolate bar at the... More

These folks bent over backwards to help my elderly, handicapped mother get the tour...we went in a car because Mom can't negotiate the stairs on the trolley. The tour guides were great and we saw so many interesting things. Learned a lot in a fun way. All the candy at the end was a nice treat. Well worth the money.

After a chocolate taste testing at the Chocolate world, my friend and I joined the trolley tour. The conductor was a native of Hershey who shared so much of his experience growing up in Hershey while the local business was also growing into an international business. Very impressive! While still digesting the chocolates at the chocolate world, more chocolates were... More

Beside the two of us, there was a family of four touring from TN. Our tour 'director' Kim made for a very good experience. He provided us a lengthy and informative history of the... More

Have not done the tour for several year, but really enjoyed it the second time as well. It gives you the true in site of Hershey, not just the chocolate. Well worth a trip, but make a reservation.
