“Capt. Rod's Trolley Tour of St. Simons Island!” - Capt. Rod is very knowledgeable and knows how to tell a story very well. We learned about the history of St. Simons, and about the interesting people that have lived there. We were well entertained and saw the points of interest we had read about plus information that is not in the normal literature. We highly recommend this tour, a well spent 90 (plus, thank you Capt. Rod) minutes!

“Trolly tour of island” - Awesome. Rod our guide never stopped giving us the history of the island. He was very very good. 90 min tour. Well worth the $20

“Rod is Good!” - He's an excellent tour guide, and he shows you everything worth seeing and will want to go back and visit in more depth, at a reasonable price.

“Learning and Enjoyment Together” - I'm so pleased to be able to highly recommend Captain Rod and Saint Simons Colonial Island Trolley Tours. This was our first trolley tour and he's set the bar high. My mom, who doesn't get out so much these days, thoroughly enjoyed this adventure to Saint Simon. She raved and raved and we all loved learning as we went down the pathways of the island. He treats you like you are the first and only tour of the day, giving you his full interest and attention. It was money well spent and we look forward to coming again and bringing other friends. We are amazed with how he not only knows the info but can share it so easily without referring to a note. Beautiful job and we feel like we've made a new friend too. For me, it makes me want to read deeper into the stories he shared and I know for my daughter, college freshmen, it brings what she's learned to life in a real way. Definitely a thumbs up and I am so glad to have found him and thanks to the other Trip Advisor members for their reviews. We appreciated them and they led us to the best.

“fascinating, awesome insight into St. Simons” - This guy is an amazing tour guide. It's incredible how much he knows about the history of St. Simons and how efficiently, humorously, and memorably he is able to convey it. You will absolutely not be disappointed if you take this tour. You can't help but be entertained and come away having learned tons of fascinating facts. Rod is incredibly friendly and personable, and his enthusiasm and love for St. Simons is palpable. This was by far the coolest thing my boyfriend and I (we're in our mid-twenties) experienced on the island. Highly recommend!
