We enjoyed our Trolley Scenic tour. We traveled into Peninsula State Park where we made several stops to view the great fall colors. The weather was perfect and the guide was knowledgeable, and easy to hear and understand. He also recommended several local attractions, restaurants, and activities.

The scenic trolly tour was really nice - one suggestion would be to maybe add a little extra time to the trip and stop at the last sight and allow people to walk up the tower at teh end of the state park before leaving.

Our trolley tour went through Penninsula State Park and the neighboring towns. Our guide was very informative. He explained a lot of interesting facts about the park and the neighboring towns. Since this was our first time to Door County we decided to take the trolley tour before we headed out on our own. GOOD CHOICE! It made the rest of our trip very enjoyable and fun. Thank You

Very much enjoyed by all in our group and learned alot about the area! Our trolley tour guide was very knowledgeable regarding the area. Received great recommendations on restaurants to try. Would definitely recommend taking this tour first to learn about the area, before the other Door County Trolley Tours.

We were in Door County, WI to celebrate my cousin's wedding. She invited us all to get tickets for a scenic trolley ride. The driver, John, was very nice and knowledgeable. He offered advice about specific locations and restaurants to visit, as well as lots of interesting stories about Door County and it's geography. He even kept my 3 year old daughter invested in the tour by having her sit up front with her cousin! All in all, it was a fun and easy tourist activity.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
