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.

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!

We had family in from out of town and they wanted to take in the experience. We are cranky locals . I was so happy we went along. What a great experience. Definitely a MUST DO!

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
