Come take the "Best Trolley Tour- 2017" on Saint Simons Island according to our guests and the locals as they have elected our tour as the BEST! View it for yourself in Elegant Island Living Magazine. Serving Glynn County since 2011, take a fun historic tour on "William of Orange" the only air conditioned and wheelchair accessible trolley on the island that is locally owned and operated. Visit more of the island and hear more of the history in a 90 minute tour. We go everywhere the other tours go and also into areas the other tours don't take you to share more of the history of the island. Boarding times are 10am and 12pm daily (10am boarding only on Sundays). Open 7 days a week. We board in Pier Village at the end of Mallery St by the blue Sunbrellas right next to the Pier on the very south end of the island. We will be closed July 19th - August 2nd. We will re-open August 3rd.

I loved this 1.5 hour trolley ride. It was a nice review of the island and it's history. As a Eugenia Price fan, I especially loved that they mentioned her and her books.

I do answer questions but unfortunately I have been very busy taking care of family issues, so maybe not as prompt as you like. How about being a bit nicer in that is voluntary not a job. Have a nice day.
