Captain Rod and Co-Pilot Rhonda were an absolute treat! - Amanda Yu and I had an awesome time aboard their Saint Simons Colonial Island Trolley Tours trolley. The trip was so informative and Captain Rod's delivery of knowledge and history was great. We would definitely recommend this version of touring over the other options based on them alone. Now, the trolley is air conditioned and is super comfortable. That's an added bonus. We will be back and we are going to book a trip with Captain Rod and Rhonda! Thank you for the wonderful time. We learned so much!
“Do NOT pass this up!!!” - I was informed about this tour by the Visitor's Center Attendant who highly recommended it to me and he did me a great service. The tour was incredibly informative and entertaining. He kept an amazing pace and the information and sights flowed seamlessly. Not only did I get quite a history and geography lesson, I was given many great locations to shop, lodge and dine. You could not ask for a better way to begin a visit to St. Simons Island!
“THE ONLY WAY TO GO” - If you are on St. Simons Island for a day, this trolley tour is a must. Circling though the shopping area, various sites and eateries are recommended. Historical events and locations are named and seen, with a stop at Christ Episcopal Church. Our driver was very well informed and helpful. As all tours, you can sit back and relax while the driver manages the traffic. After the tour, we were able to then drive to spots we wanted to visit. Driving on the island is easy and parking is freely available. The cost was $20.00 and the tour took 90 minutes. The trolley parks near the fishing dock.
“A fantastic tour of the island!” - Rod is an amazing, interesting historian. Through his well narrated stories, the island's history comes alive. The trolley tour transports one through the island's roads where he describes the sights in detail. The 90 minutes of the tour pass quickly because he holds the attention of all aboard. Truly his investment in drawing visitors into the magic of St Simon's Island could not be more apparent. This tour is well worth the $20 cost for adults. Having been on many such tours in many cities over the years, this tour offered the most in terms of the varied sights but also, as importantly, the depth of knowledge and story-telling competence of the narrator. We enjoyed every minute.
“Very informative” - Captain Rod is a GREAT tour guide! I had never been to St Simons and had no idea of the deep history of the island. Rod brought it to life and made it so interesting. Cannot wait to bring my Hubby back to experience this tour!
