“Very interesting Tour with A Plus Tour Guide!!” - Capt. Rod was excellent and the trolley was very nice and clean. He could not have been more entertaining and all of my children 15,12 and 9) absolutely loved it. Capt. Rod is so personable, friendly and knowledgable about the island and its history, we were sorry to see it end. If you are heading to St. Simons this tour is a Must Do!

“Best tour with the most knowledgeable guide!” - This was my second tour with Rod and was well worth the time. He is so very knowledgeable about everything on the island. And, in addition, he is a wonderful story-teller. I have been going to St. Simons for a number of years and have actually toured with the "other" trolley. But there is no comparison to Colonial Island tours & Capt. Rod. Take time to spend with him and plan on being entertained and educated. Keep up the good work Rod!

“Fun and informative!” I have been coming to St. Simons for 35 years but had never taken the trolley tour. We finally decided it was time to take one of the tours and learn more about the island. We are so happy we chose Capt. Rod's tour. He was excellent. He was very informative and made the tour fun! I would highly recommend his tour to anyone.

“good historical tour of Saint Simons” - We took the early 10-10:30am tour with Captain Rod. He is a very good tour guide keeping everyone engaged. We learned a great deal about the island and saw several places that we wanted to go back to explore as well as good suggestions on where to eat. Definitely worth the $20 fee.
