"“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!"

"“Fun and informative!” I have been coming to St. Simons for 35 years but had never taken the trolley tour. We finally decided it was time to take one of the tours and learn more about the island. We are so happy we chose Capt. Rod's tour. He was excellent. He was very informative and made the tour fun! I would highly recommend his tour to anyone."

"“The Best Thing Going in St. Simon” - The first and best thing we did on the island. Our tour guide was Rod, he did an exceptional job. We enjoyed the ride while hearing about the history of the island. Rod recommended places to shop and eat along the way and we were very pleased with all of the recommendations. Having been our first stop, it was good to get an insiders knowledge of the island, it's people, attractions, dining, and shopping. I could not have asked for more."

"“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.

"“Very Enjoyable Trolley Ride!”- Capt. Rod is a wonderful driver/guide. He makes sure the attractive trolley is meticulously cleaned before anyone boards, warmly welcomes his riders, and enthusiastically gives them a tour of the sights and history of St Simon's Island. His history and story-telling keep your interest throughout the 90 minute ride. He also recommends several excellent restaurants in the area to try. (We went to Southern Soul and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere)."
