"“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!"

"“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."

"“Learned even more island history” - We've vacationed here for many years, have visited SSI points of interest & read about the history of the area. I STILL learned many new historic details from Captain Rod & plan to bring others on this tour! Certainly enjoyed it immensely. VERY INFORMATIVE & enjoyable."

"I have lived in Brunswick (Glynn Co.) for almost 36 years and just took The Colonial Island Trolley yesterday. I learned things about this area that I never knew. I highly recommend this tour for residents and tourist."

"“Best tour with the most knowledgeable guide!” - This was my second tour with Rod and was well worth the time. He is so very knowledgeable about everything on the island. And, in addition, he is a wonderful story-teller. I have been going to St. Simons for a number of years and have actually toured with the "other" trolley. But there is no comparison to Colonial Island tours & Capt. Rod. Take time to spend with him and plan on being entertained and educated. Keep up the good work Rod!"

"“Learning and Enjoyment Together” - I'm so pleased to be able to highly recommend Captain Rod and Saint Simons Colonial Island Trolley Tours. This was our first trolley tour and he's set the bar high. My mom, who doesn't get out so much these days, thoroughly enjoyed this adventure to Saint Simon. She raved and raved and we all loved learning as we went down the pathways of the island. He treats you like you are the first and only tour of the day, giving you his full interest and attention. It was money well spent and we look forward to coming again and bringing other friends. We are amazed with how he not only knows the info but can share it so easily without referring to a note. Beautiful job and we feel like we've made a new friend too. For me, it makes me want to read deeper into the stories he shared and I know for my daughter, college freshmen, it brings what she's learned to life in a real way. Definitely a thumbs up and I am so glad to have found him and thanks to the other Trip Advisor members for their reviews. We appreciated them and they led us to the best."
