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.

We took this tour when we first arrived at St. Simon, wonderful way to begin your stay there. Bunny was our historical guide, she did a wonderful job telling us the history of St. Simon, with a few antidotes thrown in. This is one of the best tour's we have been on in all our travels.

Just what we wanted - a pleasant, fact filled but fun tour of St. Simons Island. The guide Ken is extremely knowledgeable in the many eras of history and inhabitants of this beautiful Island. I was surprised at the depth of historical impact the Civil War and Union Army occupation had here. I also was surprised to find that we... More

We went on the trolley as a group and had a wonderful time. Bunny was our guide and she kept the mood light and fun. She told historical stories with true southern charm. I would highly recommend this tour. Great way to see the 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!

He takes you down the beautiful oak lined roads and shows you the most historic and coolest spots on the island. You have to do this trolley tour! This was my second time and I enjoyed it just as...
