“Awesome!” - Captain Rod's Colonial Trolley Tour was fantastic! Learned so much history! He even offered suggestions of places to eat, and we really enjoyed his Eugenia Price book synopsis! Thanks!

“Exceptional overview of St. Simons Island! for tourist and LOCALS!” - If you are interested in the history of St. Simons Island, St. Simons Colonial Island Trolly Tours is a MUST! Captain Rod was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. His gift of storytelling capture our attention and took us back in history explaining the fascinating stories behind this magic place we now call home. It was also a comfortable ride - the bus was and had AC! Thank you Captain Rod for a great adventure!

“Outstanding St. Simon's ambassador” - This is the best way to gain an introduction to the sights and history of St. Simon's before you commit to other attractions. Captain Rod is worth the price of admission alone, but he provides entertaining and very informative commentary that will ground any visitor in the historical and cultural evolution of the island and surrounding country.

“Great knowledge and story telling by Captain Rod” - Don't miss this tour. Captain Rod is very enthusiastic and we were treated like we were his only tour. I don't know how he stays so energized and passionate about his job but he was fantastic! Very knowledgeable of the history and geography of the area. I really enjoyed the trip through the old neighborhood where slave descendants now reside.
