Captain Rod was a pleasure from beginning to end. He may not have been born on the island, but my guess is that made him work even harder to know the extensive history of SSI. I really appreciated something I overheard him tell another customer...More

The trolley tour, narrated by Capt. Rod, was both entertaining and educational. He never missed a beat, inserted fun facts, and gave us a good sense of the island, past and present. Morning and money well spent.

This tour is worth every cent of admission. Captain Rod is an encyclopedic source for the history and current information of St. Simons Island. The trolley is very comfortable for the tour.
