"“Wonderful trolley tour”
We where impressed with Rod he was a wonderful tour guide he really knew his stuff. We learned so much about the island and it's wonderful history. He made you feel you would want to come back to this beautiful place. Thanks rod for a wonderful tour."
"“A fascinating tour” - Captain Rod certainly knows his stuff. We had a smooth ride around the interesting parts of Saint Simons and a fascinating in-depth history of each area, related with infectious enthusiasm by our erudite guide. He even told us the place to get the best coffee - and he was right! We subsequently went back to many of the high spots to explore them for ourselves, fired by his detailed stories.
Do this tour - it's terrific, it's fun and Rod is such an engaging character."
"“Capt. Rod's Trolley Tour of St. Simons Island!” - Capt. Rod is very knowledgeable and knows how to tell a story very well. We learned about the history of St. Simons, and about the interesting people that have lived there. We were well entertained and saw the points of interest we had read about plus information that is not in the normal literature. We highly recommend this tour, a well spent 90 (plus, thank you Capt. Rod) minutes!"
"“Everything a trolley tour should be”
We stopped in St. Simon's for a day and took this tour. "Captain" Rod drove us around the island. His knowledge of history is encyclopedic and he brought the past to life. A very enjoyable time."
"“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."
"“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."
