"“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."

"“Very interesting Tour with A Plus Tour Guide!!” - Capt. Rod was excellent and the trolley was very nice and clean. He could not have been more entertaining and all of my children 15,12 and 9) absolutely loved it. Capt. Rod is so personable, friendly and knowledgable about the island and its history, we were sorry to see it end. If you are heading to St. Simons this tour is a Must Do!"

"“Enjoyed this tour very much-worth every penny” - I had seen this tour on Tripadvisor and saw the excellent reviews so I mentioned it to my travelling companions, at first they were a little taken aback by the price, but I assured them that the reviews on tripadvisor were very good and that is was an historical tour as well as a sightseeing tour. So they said ok they would try it. My entire party was very happy we did, they really enjoyed it. After the tour, we felt like we knew more about St Simon's island than anybody else. Capt Rod the tour guy was excellent, he was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that we couldn't help but learn something from him. Because of this tour, we now want to return to St Simon's Island and explore all the sights he took us too on our own. If you go to St. Simons be sure to take this tour."

"“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."
