Decided to take the trolley tour with my folks, who were a bit skeptical. Ended up that we all enjoyed it - our guide was funny and knew so much about the town. I usually don't do trolley tours but after this I am hooked.

We took the trolley ride last year. The driver was very informative and humorous. Very enjoyable. We highly recommend this tour if you are interested in all the history Galena has to offer this quaint little town.

Had a group of 9 adults to take a haunted trolley tour. Totally fun and a great way to see the town of Galena. Make sure that you download a ghost meter app on your phones!!

As we approached the counter, at 10:30 a.m. last Saturday, the sole visible employee was snarling at a women who was asking a simple question about how/whom to turn a voucher into. When I approached, and asked when the next 2 1/2 hour tour was,...More

Our driver, Doug, was well versed on the area and we were able to take this tour on the first day of our visit, which helped us decide which venues we wanted to explore on our own later. I'd give Doug 5+ stars, and the...More

Cost of trolley: sorry, I can not remember. Seems to me over $10.00 per person. Worth it, wonderful tour.

I don't think they are heated. We went on a cool morning, and they lowered heavy plastic over the sides to help keep us warm. It did keep the wind out.

I don't think so, but you may want to call and find out if they have other accommodations for people with wheel chairs. There's probably a phone number on their website.
