See and learn about Eureka Springs, up close and personal on our open-air, trolley style trams. Each tour is fully narrated by a fun, knowledgeable local guide. The tour makes 2 stops. First stop is a the 1886 Crescent Hotel, where there will be ample time to look around inside and outside the hotel, as well as enjoying the view of the beautiful Ozark mountains and the Christ of the Ozarks Statue. The second stop is at one of the historic cold water springs. The tram is "covered" but open on the sides. This makes it great for being able to see the beautiful homes, buildings, limestone walls and sidewalks and the tree covered hillsides throughout this amazing historic district. Find out, too, why Robert Ripley, of Ripley's Believe it Or Not, called Eureka Springs one of the 10 Most Unusual Towns he ever visited in the United States.

Tour was very informative and entertaining. Our tour guide, Christy, was great! Lot's of detailed information and insiders knowledge about Eureka Springs. An absolute "MUST" if you're new to town or want to learn about the history of the area.

We had a fantastic time riding the tram and learning the history of Eureka Springs. We had the best time listening to Tim Garrison's lively and funny stories about the unique town we hope to call home. I highly recommend this tour!

Tim Garrison, our tour guide, was absolutely wonderful. The tour was a perfect activity to do while in Eureka Springs. My boyfriend and I learned so much about the history of the business district and historic homes in the area and we were both so glad we did this tour!

Tim Garrison, the tour guide , is delightful. He knows the history of the town and puts comedy into his tour. The tram driver, didnt get his name, was as friendly as the tour guide. I would go again. Interesting town. Tram is open air so dress warm or cooler depending on weather

Cynthia, thank you so much for the awesome review! We love getting great reviews like yours. Tim loves them too! I want to let you know why we don't rent or provide blankets on the damp and cool/cold days. It strictly due to safety and liability issues. We used to provide them on really cold days, but people would let... More

Tim Garrison was our tour guide and did a wonderful job. A combination of friendliness and knowledge, Garrison regaled us with both historical facts and personal experiences that brought the town to life. The tour is very relaxed... and it was nice to get an overview of the town without having to find parking at each stop. If you are... More

Go down to the trolley depot on 62 west and find out when the talking tour is, buy a ticket and get on board. Even the "not open air" trolleys are fun. One friend got car sick so we left her at a stop and picked her up on the way back. The trolleys are wonderful!
