Owner description: Since 1993, the St. Simons Trolley Company has conducted the original and definitive tour of St. Simons Island. Exuding Southern charm, Bunny, a genuine Southern Belle and direct descendant of Pocohontas, provides a hilariously funny, yet well informed narrative of life in the Old South. Kevin the King adds his own twist to the stories of southern heritage and is actually funnier than Bunny. With either one, you're guaranteed a professional and highly interesting tour. Tour beautiful St. Simons Island on the oldest and most acclaimed tour on the island. This is the original historical trolley tour, operating for 23 years in nostalgic, vintage 1930's wooden trolleys. The drive-by tour includes 36 points of interest including the highlight of the tour, a WALKING TOUR OF CHRIST CHURCH CHURCHYARD at historic Christ Church (except Mondays). Other sites include the Lighthouse, one of only three working lighthouses in Georgia; Bloody Marsh, site of the famous 1742 battle where the fate of the Southern Colonies was decided; Fort Frederica, the colonial town and fort settled by General James Edward Oglethorpe; and Retreat Plantation, where relics from the slavery era still exist. We speak SOUTHERN! The St. Simons Trolley tour is one of the most acclaimed in the South. To enjoy the island in true southern fashion, join us on the St. Simons Trolley. You will truly enjoy the entertaining and informative narrative of 400 years of island history and folklore as you ride along in the newly refurbished, original, vintage Green Trolley. We also point out the best places to eat, shop, and play. It's the perfect way to see and experience island life, while getting a good overview of the entire island.

This tour is amazing! Typically, I'm not a huge fan of trolley tours however, this tour was exceptional! Bunny was a fabulous guide & our driver (who's name I cannot remember) was also great! They made everyone feel at home and welcome. It was a great way to see the island and learn about great spots before venturing out on our own. I highly reccomend this tour!

Great tour of SSI with a tour guide, Kevin, who was both knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. This tour will get you acquainted with the general layout of the Island, it's historic past and present day offerings. If there's one trolley tour to take, this is the one!

We have been to SSI many times, but this was the first time for the SSI Trolley Tour...what a great tour. Bunny was fabulous....knowledgeable and funny. We learned a lot we didn't know about the island and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

What a fantastic tour of St. Simons! Just the right length, perfect amount of history mixed with hilarious anecdotes. Bunny leads these tours and you can tell she knows the island like the back of her hand and loves the island as well. If you have a choice, go with Bunny!

I was in St. Simons about a month ago and took this trolley tour. I rode this trolley on the recommendation of one of the local salespeople near the pier. It was the most expensive trolley tour and yet had no AIR! The trolley was incredibly hot and the only way to get a breeze was to have the windows open. I felt that the tour was a bit rushed in order to have the breeze blowing. The guide was friendly - perhaps a bit too much so. I was traveling alone that day and felt uncomfortable with attention and touch that I felt was a bit too 'familiar' for a guest. Facts took a bit of dramatic license, but were for the most point historically accurate. The front of the trolly was messy with trash and cleaning products. I would not recommend this tour.
