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.

Take the Trolley ride! When ever we travel we try to take a trolley ride first thing. The tour shows you places you may miss on your own. Kevin was a great guide and gave us a snapshot history of St Simons with humor. I wonder if he ever married the Russian model? I guess you'll have to take the... More

The trolley tour was fun and informative (and beautiful), it's great if you're visiting and know nothing about where to go or what to do. Plus it's very affordable. Really worth your time!

My family loves this type of activity, fun, laughs, and history lessons. Even my boys, 17 & 12 enjoy, learn & talk about it long after we've stepped off the trolley. Bunny was our guide and she's just terrific and personable. Purchased tickets on line, made it very easy.
