Overview

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.

The tour was very informative and I was glad I was not driving because the traffic is bad! We later drove to some of the attractions ourselves.

We were shown how to get around town. Very useful information. We also got a great history lesson. Bunny also gave us some ideas on what to do next. Richard had the trolley well under control.

Took the tour as a family and had a great time. Bunny was an excellent host and very knowledgeable of the area, and has a great personality. We all enjoyed the 90 minute tour of St. Simons Island.

This is the way to see the island. Our guide had a great "tour guide" personality with humorous anecdotes. You get a great overview of the area and can decide what to return to.

This is a great way to see the island. Moderately inexpensive, all inclusive, hits all of the high spots allowing you to decide what you would like to go back and explore on your own

Good patter by driver/owner? Made it fun. But the trolley went too fast over some very rough roads. Not enough time to really see what the driver was talking about. We sat in the back, open end, to better see and take pictures. More jolts...More
