“Fascinating historical tour of the island” - Captain Rod did an amazing job of relaying the historical highlights of St. Simons Island. The more than 90 minutes he spent in endless factual information transfer kept everyone captivated while he transported us back in time. I highly recommend this tour of the island if you want to learn as much as possible in a short period of time.

“What a great time!!” - Capt. Rod treated us to at least 90 minutes of history, great scenery, fun anecdotes and just a really welcoming tour of St Simon's Island. He truly loves the island and its history. He also must truly love his clients and the people who live on the island because we felt like we had a friend when we finished our tour. He is full of amazing facts and tells the story of the island and its people with a fun and also fascinating story. He doesn't just relay a rote story....he stops, turns around and makes you feel as though he is talking to you as a friend. We have done many wonderful tours in many cities as that helps us feel at home in a new place, but this tour is probably about the best we have done and more than worth the ticket price. Will repeat if when we go again just for the fun. Highly recommended ,,, tell Capt. Rod his Norman OKlahoma friends say hi!

“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!

“Local resident's review” - My wife and I have lived here for 16 years and sometimes take out of town guests on a trolley tour. We had never been on the Colonial Island tour, so we took some new guests for a Sat afternoon outing. Capt Rod proved to be not only an excellent and enthusiastic guide, but one who truly loved showing our beautiful island at it's best and most historic. Highly recommend his tour and suggest taking the afternoon run, as it gives him the freedom to make a stop or two (like Christ Church) extra as he doesn't have to worry about another run later in the day.

“The best way to be indoctrinated to St Simon's Island!” - Captain Rod's narration of the history of the island, the geographical features, the variety of restaurants and the overall indoctrination to the Island was outstanding. His very detailed explanations of events and the history held our attention from the beginning to the end of the tour. All of his information was highlighted with a delightful sense of humor that made the tour even more enjoyable.
