Rhiner/Laufenberg party
Mon, May 9  1:00 PM Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
We all had a great time. I live here and the Laufenbergs visit often, but it was great to have someone else drive us around and tell us a little more about the area than we already knew. John/Brian was an excellent tour guide. He spoke clearly and succinctly and has a very good knowledge of the area. Good sense of humor also.

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 16th year in business, has a fleet of 12 trolleys, and offers 11 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...
