While the price per person...$20...is a little high, our southern belle host gave a wonderful history of the island while driving along beautiful Victorian homes and historical sites. The trip lasts around an hour and a half. The trolley itself is neat but the seats are a little hard...reminded me of my desks in grade school if you know what... More

We always begin a new adventure with a tour if possible. Found it to be the best way to get a feel for the area. This tour, by far, was the best we've ever had. Connie Claxton was personable, knowledgeable and most importantly for us...you could understand every word she spoke. She gave you the facts of houses, business and... More

This is not a hop on hop off trolley tour, so bare that in mind. Lasts about 11/2hrs and you pay as you get on the trolley - no kiosk. Great info about the area, really enjoyed the tour.

First time on the island and we decided to do the Trolley tour to get first hand information on the rich history that it has. I wasn't disappointed at all. Connie was great very informative. Gave us the need to know of the island. We have three small kids ages 6, 4, and 2. They all fell asleep on the... More

We very highly recommend the Trolley Tour with Connie Claxton as the tour guide. She is very friendly and entertaining. The start is conveniently located at the marina end of Centre Street at 11:30 and 2:00. Our tour took an hour and a half, and we saw so many interesting historic houses and buildings, and heard all of their stories.... More

We have been on other trolley tours ( Savvannah, St. Augustine etc. ) and this was the best. Connie, the driver, was great. She was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. She did not feel the need to tell corny jokes like many of the tours do, nor did she talk to her customers like they were 10 years... More

Looking at Amelia Island on a map we decided to go and pay a visit. We noticed a trolley bus parked at the end of the main street and decided to give it a go. There wasn't much information but a notice in the trolley of what time it was leaving. We had to ask the lady in a nearby... More

4 of us couples called in advance about the Trolley. We were told that the trolley has 2 scheduled trips each day of the historic district. We all showed up at the Trolley stop 15 minutes early. The trolley never came. Our first call to the service we spoke with a live person who said the trolley was running a... More

The tour itself is very informative and interesting. Connie was knowledgeable and tried her best to make up for the poor PA system that was very distracting. There are beautiful homes and we got to learn a bit about each of the families that lived there as well as a good history of Fernandina Beach. The bus made some stops... More
