Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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. We are also the ONLY #1 Ranked Trolley Tour on the island since August 2013 on TripAdvisor. 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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Stairs / lift

Very enjoyable historical tour with an enthusiastic driver and guide. We learned a lot as the 90 minute tour moved quickly from site to site. Excellent way to learn while riding in a comfortable trolley. Highly recommend ordering tickets in advance since the tour fills up fast. Only two tours a day.

Very informative, he is all about customer service. He is fun and interesting. Had two kids along 16 and 10 and both loved it. Captain Rod is definitely in the right job!

Blessings!

What a wonderful educational experience and tour of the Island. Captain Rod was a wealth of knowledge about the history of St. Simons and all the points of interest. There were five of us including our 11 year old Granddaughter and we all came away thinking it was one of the best tours we have taken. The Trolly was very comfortable for the 90 minute ride. I would recommend Colonial Island Trolly Tours to anyone visiting the Island.

My friend and I truly enjoyed the trolley tour with Captain Rod, he was very knowledgeable of the area (both historically and presently). He kept us all engaged (even the several young children that were on board) and got us excited about the history of St. Simons Island. The trolley its self was comfortable and air conditioned. I have been on several trolley tours and this by far was the best! I would highly recommend this tour to others.

My wife and daughter took the trolley while I was working a conference. They thoroughly enjoyed it. They said Rod was very informative and it was a good time.
