Took the tour yesterday. Prices were reasonable. Driver was very knowledgeable and took us on both sides of the river. Was not as smooth as a Cadillac but it was comfortable. We learned a lot about the town. Well worth the price of tickets.

Our driver was entertaining with his facts about Galena's history. He had a couple of samples to pass around showing us about what he was talking. The trolley was comfortable but I think it went too fast for any pictures.

The driver was knowledgeable and got to see a lot of the town and historic homes. Time did not allow us to ask the driver many questions.

This was an interesting tour. Cost only about $20 per person and we learned quite a bit about Galena history. It's a little less than an hour long and was a nice break from all the walking and shopping.

We took the 2.5 hour tour that included the Dowling, Grant & Belvedere. The homes were interesting but at the Belvedere and Grant home the tour guides spoke way too fast. We expected more of a tour of general Galena sites and history but there...More

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.
