Overview
More
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.

Eureka Springs is very confusing at first. Streets make no sense and they crisscross a lot and have loops and s-curves. Furthermore the historic district streets are very narrow, parking is minimal and cars park on the side of street in opposite directions. Ride this...More

Even when you order tickets online, you must go inside the little building to get additional tickets. Although we booked in mid March, our tram was full. I wish I had sat on the outside to get better photos. The hostess was energetic and welcoming...More

This is a fun and different way to travel around the town, passion play and Thorn Crown Chapel in Eureka Springs. It's a good way to talk and go where ever you like in the city.

The tour on the tram was great. So much information about this small town. The tour guide Christie B was a hometown girl. She knew all the ins and the outs of the place. Highly recommend.

Booking online is simple, fast and saves you time when you get there to pick up your actual tickets. There is free parking while you are on the tour, also.
