    Old school west at its best
    Gina_M, Mar 2024
    Guide was awesome he was so knowledgeable and kind . Took us everywhere we wanted to see. I’m definitely would recommend it to a friend and we will definitely be coming back again.
    Nice little trolley tour - skip the shootout
    KristinWinkler_S, Mar 2024
    Short but comprehensive tour of Tombstone; guide was informative and entertaining. Skip the shootout show, though, that can be bundled with it. We’d hoped it would be a historical reenactment of the famous shootout but instead it was more of a silly little play. Kids might enjoy it but adults, not so much! Full of pratfalls and scatalogical humor.

    Chuck was an entertaining driver. 25 minute tour of the area and its history. Typical of these types of tours.
    couldn’t take trip!
    Paula_H, Oct 2023
    None as we were competing with those who booked live versus online! Paid 30 and couldn’t get a refund!
    Very knowledgeable guide
    Al_M, Oct 2023
    Our guide, Chuck was very knowledgeable. His anecdotes added to the highlights of the tour. The trolley was comfortable. Sights were easy to see.
    Enjoyed the tour, liked...
    Jennifer_N, Jul 2023
    Enjoyed the tour, liked the price for 2 Seniors. The only negative was that the microphone was cutting in and out and it was hard to hear.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Happy to hear you had a nice tour. Thank you for the information about the microphone. Sometimes the driver/historian doesn’t realize that the speakers are not working properly. We will definitely look into this ASAP. Happy trails.

    Our Tombstone Visit
    Gerald_A, May 2023
    Entertaining and informative guide/driver. Also, he really looked the part for Tombstone. We learned a lot about the history of this historic place.
    The Trolley nice start to visiting Tombstone. Don't remember the tour guide's name, but he was an able cowboy and guide.
    Michael_M, May 2023
    The many armed and friendly cowboys walking around between their various acts lent a nice air of authenticity to the Tombstone experience. Well done.
    Interesting town
    jack_w, Apr 2023
    Interesting facts but the ride seemed to go by fast. Could drive a little bit slower past some of the historical sites. It was priced just right.
    Informative tour
    Candace_R, Apr 2023
    Our driver was dressed for the occasion and very knowledgeable. I enjoyed the tour. Would do it again
    Very Informative
    Douglas_v, Mar 2023
    Very informative and worth the money. When you check in ask about upgrading to a combo ticket for the gun fight.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    We are happy that you enjoyed the tour. I think there is a lot more to Tombstone then folks expect. Our trolley cars cover close to 4 miles on our route, including Boothill Graveyard. You’re right, upgrading our historical trolley tour ticket to the Wyatt combo will provide half price admission to our Old Tombstone comedy gunfight show. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Happy Trails
    Short But Sweet
    Karen_D, Jan 2023
    The trip was very informative but only lasted a half hour. Our guide was enthusiastic. The town itself really gives you a flavor of the Old West.
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    Thank you for the great review. We are happy that you rode along with us. Our conductors enjoy sharing Tombstone‘s rich history, Legends, and lore. Happy Trails!

    Great Tombstone Tour
    Tiffany_W, Nov 2021
    Really enjoyed the stores and history of Tombstone. Learned the real reason they called it the "Town to Tough to Die". Great little tour. Pretty fast. Wish we could've taken more time. Hard to get pictures, but still worth it.
    Tombstone tour
    Lynette_D, Oct 2021
    The historical tour was very interesting and enlightening, HOWEVER, the driver's microphone was too close to his mouth so everything he said was very muffled.
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    We are happy that you enjoyed your tour. Thank you for the technical advice. We will pass that on to our drivers! Happy Trails!
    Brenda_O, Aug 2021
    I really enjoy the ride but i would’ve preferred for them to make the ride a little more exciting. Also to go around more places and get like a brochure on what to expect from the ride
    If you have time and desire to learn about Tombstone
    Stephen_R, Jul 2021
    A great way to begin your tour of Tombstone. The ride is not very long but it is not too much to spend. I did enjoy the taste of Tombstone and it ends right by where there is a staged gunfight.
    Really fun experience
    Guy_D, May 2021
    The driver was fantastic. Funny and informative. Very interesting history. Full trolley but not uncomfortable

    From $15.00
