Really great time!

This was really a great tour. We did a tour last year - the Haunted Door County trolley tour - so we thought we'd try the Sturgeon Bay version this year. It was great! All of your tour guides are fantastic, including our guide this year, but the stories told on the Sturgeon Bay tour were much scarier! And we loved that! In fact, my daughter insisted that we dine at the Nautical Inn on Sunday, so that we could hopefully catch a glimpse of the ghost we were told about on the tour. I would highly recommend (and I have already recommended) the Haunted Trolley Tours, as I feel they are very well done, and your guides are extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, and of Door County in general.

It was a less than I expected.
madelyngalle Sat, Sep 27  7:00 PM Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
It was upsetting when I arrived 30 minutes early, only to wait for a group of 8 women, that arrived late. Then they were rude about it. The LOUD, old music at the end was not appreciated. I thought we took a tour of a old house. Another person I was with also thought that we went thru a old house, she said that it was on the internet tour. It was okay about some history lessons, but it was not all that I thought it would be. I would not recommend it.

Not impressed
normanthayer Fri, Sep 26  7:00 PM Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Just stories. Could or could not be true. Definitely not haunted or even scary. Kinda lame since it was billed as a haunted tour. But I went in after reading the reviews and kept an open mind. But still it was lame. Even the very enthusiastic 10 year old seemed to have his bubble burst. :(

Great Experience.

My husband and I really enjoyed the Ghost Trolly Tour. Our tour guide did an outstanding job of narrating the stories and holding our interest. My husband was concerned the tour was going to be silly or for teenagers. He was very impressed and learned some historical facts about the area. We have already recommended to friends for next year.

We will be getting off the trolley 4 times during the tour, but we move at a casual pace. There is minimal to moderate walking for short distances on the tour but comfortable shoes are recommended.

Door County Trolley

Door County Trolley was started in May 2000 by A.J. Frank. After 13 years as a Registered Nurse in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, A.J. decided to start his own trolley tour business. With the support of his wife, family and friends, he moved his family to beautiful Door County, Wisconsin to start his new family business and fulfill a life-long dream of entertaining people. 

Door County Trolley is now in its 11th year in business, has a fleet of 9 trolleys, and offers 10 entertaining "themed trolley tours" throughout the year in Door County, Wisconsin. All Door County Trolley tour guides are thoroughly trained by A.J. and will entertain you from the beginning to the end of your tour.
In addition to the themed trolley tours, trolleys are available for private group tours and wedding charters throughout Wisconsin. Most recently "Step on Guide" services are also available to charter bus groups in the area. 
Our trolley tours have been showcased in USA Today, Midwest Living Magazine and the Chicago Tribune, just to name a few...
