I visit Galena a couple times a year and have joined the trolley tour 2 or 3 times - each time is just as great as the first. It's a great way to pick up fun historical facts about the town and see the sights....More

Tour is very interesting, fun and informative. It helped us decide what areas of Galena that we needed to explore more. I’d recommend doing the tour as soon as you arrive so you can then plan what you’d like to do and see.

We had come up to Galena for the first time and when we saw the Galena Trolley Tours, we thought that we would see Galena that way. Galena just happens to have a couple of hills, so it can be a bit easier. The prices...More

Me, my husband and daughter loved this tour. We did the longer tour to get a good feel of Galena. We always do this tour and the drivers are awesome! Very informative and keep us laughing.

I am not a trolley tour kind of person, but I really enjoyed this tour. With Galena's steep hillsides, this was a great way to see the town, and hear the stories of the people who established it, and lived here.

I would recommend this as a first stop upon arriving in Galena. Great way to introduce yourself to the downtown and immediate area - great stories and informative tour. We took the 1-hour tour and then decided what we wanted to visit again.

This is a very nice way to see the city and for the beginner, I recommend the one hour tour...they are open to questions as you travel about without being irritated or fear of loosing their place on the script!

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.
