We had Connie as our driver. Connie is very knowledgable about Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island. She speaks very clearly and is personable without using excessive jokes, corny stories etc. The trolley has wooden benches as one would expect. If you have trouble sitting on wood for very long, you might bring a cushion. Personally I found the tour so... More

Our tour with Connie (Tour Guide) was a great way to find out all the behind the scenes history of the island. We had seen quite a bit of the historic district but after talking to Connie we realized this was the best way to experience the history of the island. It was "Great" I would surely take advantage of... More

We took the Amelia Island Trolley on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in late October, and it was a truly enjoyable and relaxing way to see lovely Amelia island. Our tour director did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the Island, and we got a chance to see some beautiful historic Victorian homes and historic sites on our tour... More

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.

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.
