“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.
“Do NOT pass this up!!!” - I was informed about this tour by the Visitor's Center Attendant who highly recommended it to me and he did me a great service. The tour was incredibly informative and entertaining. He kept an amazing pace and the information and sights flowed seamlessly. Not only did I get quite a history and geography lesson, I was given many great locations to shop, lodge and dine. You could not ask for a better way to begin a visit to St. Simons Island!
“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.
“Great knowledge and story telling by Captain Rod” - Don't miss this tour. Captain Rod is very enthusiastic and we were treated like we were his only tour. I don't know how he stays so energized and passionate about his job but he was fantastic! Very knowledgeable of the history and geography of the area. I really enjoyed the trip through the old neighborhood where slave descendants now reside.
“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.
