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.

The tram provides you with an informative history of Eureka Springs and her amazing places. You can sit back and relax instead of the nail biting drive along the narrow streets of Eureka Springs. Tour guides are interesting and entertaining.

Tim was a great emcee. He has passion for Eureka Springs, and he was also very entertaining. This was my fifth trip to Eureka Springs, and my first time doing the tram tour...and I learned more about Eureka Springs than I ever knew before. I highly recommend this open-air tram tour. You do get to get off and stretch your... More

The tour was okay. I think it was more for the older population. It did have some interesting points with a few good spots to get out and take pictures. It's a good tour if you take it to get a layout of where everything is, get ideas of what you want to go see, and hear a bit of... More

We're back in Eureka Springs for a weekend with friends and of course, we did the historic tram tour! We like this so much hat we go every time we visit. And, every time we get the pleasure of Tim Garrison as our tour guide. He does a great job and I think we learn something new every time we... More

We enjoyed the history and information given on the tour and especially loved letting someone else drive. We made two stops: a little cave with a fault line and the famous haunted Crescent Hotel where we were allowed to freely look around about 20 minutes. The tour points out many interesting houses and takes you through downtown. If it's cooler... More

We loved quirky Eureka Springs! The streets are multi level and are lined with many little shops to browse through. There's a trolley for public transportation. So many little cafes to dine at. Be sure to take the trolley to top of the mountain and visit the 130 year old Crescent Hotel. There's a restaurant on the 4th floor with... More

We had a good tour from a very talkative narrator. He seemed very knowledgeable of the historic places and events. The only problem is that the tour wasn't long enough, it left me wanting to see and hear more. Next time I'll probably go on that same tour! The picture below was the Crescent Moon Hotel 1886.

My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed the 2-hr. tram tour of Eureka Springs (Arkansas) Historic District on Friday, Oct. 28, 2016. Our tour guide, Tim Garrison, was quite knowledgeable and willing and able to share insights about the area that only a native would be likely to know about. He was also very entertaining. The tour provided ample opportunity to... More
