My mom and I enjoyed the trolley tour. We did the scenic tour and learned about the area. It would have been better to have it longer and your more of the island. We saw Fish Creek, Ephraim and Peninsula Park. The tour guide was very knowledgable and funny.

To begin with, the driver was great! He had a good sense of humor and a knowledge of the area. The fall colors were near peak, the day was sunny, and a good time was had.

Scenic Tour and LIghthouse Tour both were awesome!
lilblossom44 Sun, Oct 5  11:00 AM Female 50-59 Local Individual
 
My sister and I attended both tours and enjoyed them. Very informative! The drivers were awesome and new a lot about the area. It was nice to be able to look around and take in the scenery without having to worry about directions, traffic, etc that comes along with driving. It was a great way to hear about places that we didn't know about before and now want to visit the next time we are back. I can't wait to go back and sign up for some of the other tours that are offered.

Our tours run rain or shine, and are always enjoyable no matter what the weather is like. Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. However, if the weather is not cooperative we will spend little or no time off the trolley.

Yes, guests can bring their own snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the tour. (Alcoholic beverages are not permitted.) We ask that people do their best to be neat and remove any trash after the tour is over. Please note there is limited storage space on the trolley so coolers are not permitted on board.
Does the trolley have heat and air conditioning?
The trolley is heated and enclosed for year round use, however, there is no air conditioning. Please keep in mind that since we are near the water and the windows do open, hot days are rarely a problem. On summer days with the windows open, you can experience the feel of the old-time trolleys.
How much time do we spend on the trolley?
Guests have the opportunity to get off the trolley two times on the scenic limestone bluffs for photographs, so don't forget to bring your cameras.

If someone in your group has limited mobility and you have specific questions or concerns, please click on the "Contact DoorTrolley" link for more information before purchasing tickets.
How much walking will we do on the tour?
There is very little to no walking required on this tour. All the great vistas are right outside the trolley windows.
Can I store a stroller or wheelchair on the trolley?
There is limited storage space available on the trolley, so there isn't room to store large objects like wheelchairs and strollers.

About

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...
