I am an avid fan of all things history, particularly if that history involves any kind of brush with the paranormal. Let me just say that for years my Mother and I have been coming up to Door County from Milwaukee, during the fall, for a girl's weekend. We are always looking for fun things to do-for new adventures. When I saw the billboards and ads for the Door County Trolley Ghost Tour, I was so excited! The weather was spooky, our tour guide (Bob) was hilarious and was honestly the BEST storyteller. He had everyone thrilled on the trolley. We had a blast, making stops at several locations. We even stopped in the middle of Peninsula State Park, in the pitch black of night, to tour a graveyard. Honestly it was just fun...pure and simple! Lets just put it this way...it was so much fun, I'm still talking about it to friends and family. It was a great experience and I seriously cannot wait to go again next year.

Mixed feelings

Tour was well organized. Driver & host at Noble House did their best, but I just wasn't convinced. Thought it was all a little to contrived. I did enjoy the cemetery at night, but my friends didn't. They were afraid they would trip over a low grave marker. Noble House should have had some light. The stairway was narrow & steep. It should have had at least some dim lighting. Of course, if I'd tripped, I would have just fallen on someone in the crowd. Hard to see anything in the upstairs rooms for the same reason. But, what the heck, it was 2 weeks before Halloween, so we had to go.

Great small time fun!

We thought the ghost tour trolley ride was fun and informative. The host was very nice, and funny but parts of the tour could have moved a little faster. The house tour could have been more organized...they need to direst people better so traffic flows better. We liked the sing-a-long on the way back was fun.

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...
