Owner description: 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.

Absolutely excellent information on the culture, history and events that shaped the area. Rod is a bundle of energy who communicated especially well. He also will help give insight on local shopping and restaurants. Do not miss his tour.

St Simons Island has a history that goes back hundreds of years. Taking the Colonial Island Trolley Tour is the perfect way to learn about the history of the island and her people, all from the comfort of the bright orange trolley. Rod is a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. His presentation is well planned and held my interest from start to finish. Do you know why some of the churches on St Simons have blue windows? What does a 'don't ask ~ won't sell' sign mean? Take the tour and discover the answers to these questions and so much more!

My wife and I have lived here for 16 years and sometimes take out of town guests on a trolley tour. We had never been on the Colonial Island tour, so we took some new guests for a Sat afternoon outing. Capt Rod proved to be not only an excellent and enthusiastic guide, but one who truly loved showing our beautiful island at it's best and most historic. Highly recommend his tour and suggest taking the afternoon run, as it gives him the freedom to make a stop or two (like Christ Church) extra as he doesn't have to worry about another run later in the day.

Saint Simons Colonial Island Trolley Tours is the BEST attraction on the island. This is the tour to take if you are more interested in the history of the island than where to buy T-shirts and flip flops! Captain Rod knows his history and has an awesome way of presenting it.

As a third grade teacher, I plan on using pictures I captured to teach both habitats, as well as history. Being able to connect content to real world examples in my classroom is important to me!

This tour will allow me to make these connections. This tour focuses on Georgia history, geology, and geography. A MUST DO!!!
