“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!

“Very Enjoyable Trolley Ride!”- Capt. Rod is a wonderful driver/guide. He makes sure the attractive trolley is meticulously cleaned before anyone boards, warmly welcomes his riders, and enthusiastically gives them a tour of the sights and history of St Simon's Island. His history and story-telling keep your interest throughout the 90 minute ride. He also recommends several excellent restaurants in the area to try. (We went to Southern Soul and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere).

“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.
