“Informative and comfortable!” - When we visited the island last week we picked this trolley tour to get out of the heat and into the air conditioning and we were not disappointed. Rod thanks for giving us a great tour of the island! We learned a lot and really enjoyed the comfort of your trolley. It is clear you are passionate about providing a great experience.

“Superb tour and worthwhile tour.” - Captain Rod is very personable and engaging, which made for an excellent tour of the island. Initially, I did not want to go on the tour, but it was worthwhile and a wealth of information. It was nice to find out about the island in which we were visiting. Our women's group from our church felt that it was one of the best activities we did. Put this tour on your "To Do" list when you visit. It is well worth the price and then some.

“Colonial Island Trolley Worth the Cost” - Although the trolley cost $20 per person, the tour was worth it. Our driver, Rod, knew the history of the island, as well as general history of the United States. He did a terrific job of both educating us and entertaining us, keeping the pace of the tour flowing well as we navigated the island. We enjoyed the many points of interest as we toured, especially the history of the First African Baptist Church and the Freed slave community. The avenue of the oaks were spectacular and Rod's history of The Battle of Bloody Marsh with General James Oglethorpe was riveting.

“Best tour on St Simon's!” Great tour of St Simon's! Captain Rod was wonderful. He made the tour fun and enjoyable. The history he presents spans several generation and he weaves them all together seamlessly. We learned so much about St. Simon's!!
