We did the 75 minute scenic tour, but it was longer than that. I had done this in the past but my other half hadn't. Our driver (Don) was very good...knowledgeable, funny, personable, and easy to listen to. Most of this tour is spent in Peninsula State Park and you go get to see some fabulous views from scenic overlooks. Have a camera ! My only 'con' to this tour is I wish it would go to more areas of the county. I would still recommend anyone to do a trolley tour !

Fun and educational while taking in the DC beauty

A nice activity to fill the long weekend in Door County. The trolley was comfortable and warm on the windy day. Our guide was awesome - full of fun stories, history and jokes. Also, a very safe driver which is much appreciated when you don't have seat belts! We saw lots of beautiful sites and had a few quick opportunities for pictures, would have liked a couple more stops to really take in the sites. My two criticisms would be to have the guide always give a side of the trolley that we should be looking at (John had many moments of 'over here' or pointing that was hard to spot through the crowd). We didn't cover a lot of ground so it would have been nice if our return route was different than our original route, just to see something different. John was great, he was clear and answered questions.

A lot of fun and beautiful scenery!

The scenic tour was great mostly because of our tour guide, Bob. He was fun, interesting and also gave us recommendations for other places of interest, restaurants, etc.

We also took the Lighthouse Trolley Tour which incorporated much of the scenery and stories from the scenic tour. And John, our trolley driver, was outstanding!

Both are well worth the time and money. Next time in Door County we're planning on the wine tasting tour.

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.

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...
