Great Way to Celebrate Halloween!
Sat, Oct 31, 15  8:15 PM Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My new husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our "Mini-Moon" in Door County, and the Haunted Trolley Tour was definitely a highlight! Our guide was knowledgeable and engaging, and the stories were fascinating and really brought a unique perspective and added depth to our visit. These types of tours are a great "gateway" to any place you are visiting and a wonderful way to get to know the area better. The fact that it was Halloween (our favorite holiday), the rest of the group was equally enthusiastic, and the spooky soundtrack while we drove from spot to spot - all only added to the ambiance and overall enjoyment! We will definitely be back to Door County and we will definitely book another tour with the DC Trolley group!

The tour was very well done and great fun. Our leader ( and driver) was very knowledgeable about the history of Sturgeon Bay. He related a good number of interesting stories that leave no doubt about the existence of ghosts in the area.

A Good Time
Sat, Oct 31, 15  6:00 PM Female 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
5 of us went on Halloween which we thought was appropriate. The weather was terrible but certainly provided atmosphere. Because of the weather we couldn't go to one of the stops and it was hard to see out at some of the stops but our guide told great stories. A bit pricey for what it is and since you can only buy tix on line you get socked with a few extra bucks tacked on. We will definitely try the Haunted DC tour next year and hope it doesn't rain.

We have been wanting to take a tour like this for awhile and finally had the chance. The driver was wonderful and enthusiastic. We would do this again. Even though the weather was cool the trolley was kept warm for all to be comfortable. The only thing that I would recommend would be to have something at the end that highlights what has been talked about. We put together a scrapbook and tried to remember everything but know we have forgotten some. It is dark on the trolley so at times it might be hard to write and for me I didn't bring my purse due to getting on and off didn't want to carry it with so had no paper or pen.

Tour guide was not a good fit.

Wasn't worth the price of the tour. Maybe a different guide would have made it better..He spoke extremely loud and it felt like he was preaching more then telling stories that

Severe disappointment
Sat, Oct 24, 15  6:00 PM Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This was not really a ghost tour as much as it was a local history lesson. While the stories were less than interesting, the stops were even worse. Not worth the money or time.

Tour Guide Was the Problem
Fri, Oct 23, 15  6:00 PM Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My mom did a tour before and loved it, this year she said it was terrible compared to her first tour. Our tour guide was nice but he shouted at us the whole time, it was too loud, he played the same song on repeat and he also dragged the stories on and on with pointless details and then left out major parts of the stories. It would have been fun with a different tour guide.

Enjoyed the ride and stories
Sat, Oct 17, 15  6:00 PM Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The driver/storyteller was a lot of fun, and the trolley was very comfortable despite the cold night. The sound system was actually a bit too loud at times, so hearing the ghost stories was not a problem. The stories went very well with the settings we stopped at, and it was just enough time off the trolley to stretch our legs but not get too frozen in the night wind.

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...
