"“Highlight of our Saint Simons Island trip” - This was a first class tour. Captain Rod was amazing, by far the most knowledgeable, energetic and passionate tour guide we have ever encountered. A truly enjoyable experience. "

"“Hear the true story of Neptune.” A must do tour of St. Simons Island and the history of the area that goes back 500 years. Captain Rod certainly makes the area and history come alive and his in depth account of the slave Neptune is not only amazing but inspiring. Don't miss this excellent experience."

"“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!"

"“Don't Miss This One!” - The sheer volume of information provided on this tour boggles the mind. For a solid hour and a half, Captain Rod talked about the events and people that shaped St. Simon's Island. From the Spaniards, British, Native Americans, slaves, and even Scots, there is something for everyone! The weather was perfect , the company even more so. This tour is one of the best I've taken - full of information and a very hospitable tour guide. This is a tour worth your time and more importantly, your money. Don't miss it."

"“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."

"“Best tour on St Simon's!” Great tour of St Simon's! Captain Rod was wonderful. He made the tour fun and enjoyable. The history he presents spans several generation and he weaves them all together seamlessly. We learned so much about St. Simon's!!"

"“educational/fun ride!” - Took the tour yesterday and couldn't have been more impressed. Saw and learned lots of things about historical sights we (first time visitors) did not know existed. Went back and visited them on foot today. Thank you 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!"
