"“Fantastic Journey” - My husband and I took this trolley tour when we visited in October 2014. Sorry for the delay in writing this but I just had to comment on what a fantastic 90 minute trolley tour this was of the island. I would recommend doing this tour as soon as you arrive so you get a good feel for the island and you will see places on the tour you will want to go back to and spend some time at. We did and would never had stopped at them if we hadn't learned about them from Captain Rod. Rod is quite a story teller and keeps you entertained throughout the tour. He is so enthusiastic you can tell he is in love with this island and all of the history on it. There are two trolley tours in town so be sure you get on the ORANGE trolley. Next time we go back to SSI we will do the tour again as we enjoyed it so much and would probably learn some new things. Capt Rod also gives you some inside scoop on the island restaurants, etc...Have fun!"

"“The best and most informative tour ever taken.” Capt. Rod was very entertaining and informative. I don't think there was anything about the history of the island he didn't know. The tour was one of the most enjoyable we have ever taken. Thanks Captain Rod."

"“Incredible” Captain Rod was incredible and even that is an understatement! It is a must when you visit Saint Simons. Moments before he took off for the next tour...he had me follow him so I could park my truck and trailer so I did not miss the tour. He is a personality that you lean in to catch all the information as he describes with personality and excitement!"

"“A Fantastic Learning Experience” - We enjoy going on a tour when we arrive in places we have never been to before. We find it to be very helpful. This has to have been the very best tour we have been on ever!! Captain Rod's presentation was very informative about the history of this Island. He is very enthusiastic and it is obvious that he really enjoys what he does. He offered us an amazing amount of information as well as suggestions about things we might enjoy as well while we are in vacation. This is an experience not to be missed!"

"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!"

"“Air conditioning in the trolley” This trolley is the only one with air conditioning and Cap'n Ron. He was fun, informative, creative, great storyteller, and a good driver. He was able to bring alive the island of St Simons. When you finish the tour you want to go again. He will make great recommendations for eating"
