This tour is fantastic!

This tour, on Halloween night, was so much fun. The tour guide, Ross, is a creative storyteller and I was so pleasantly surprised at how he really gets you thinking about what may or may not be out there in the spiritual sense. My husband and I both thought this was well worth the money. My favorite part was being in the cemetery

in the pitch black of the night. That is something I never thought I would find myself doing on a Halloween night to boot! Freaky!!! I cannot express in words the way that Ross made each story come to life. His tales have a way of allowing you to feel sympathy for the people he described and to feel the depth of their pain regarding the loss of their loved ones. A very fun night!

Tour negatively impacted by other passengers
Sat, Oct 31, 15  8:30 PM Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
A group of four of us went on a ghost tour recently. Our experience was negatively impacted by three loud and obnoxious passengers on our tour. Our tour guide was excellent but he couldn't keep the loud group in check. The ghost tour involves the tour guide telling a number of stories of which gets impacted when there are passengers constantly talking and being disrespectful. We would have enjoyed the tour if it were not for the rhude and obnoxious passengers in the front of the trolley.

entertaining, interactive and best at night for s

Well this was my first time on a haunted tour and it was a blast. The whole weekend rained and was colder than expected so I worried it might be another bust. Luckily, the "spirits"intervened and righted the night to clear and warm up just a bit to make it more comfortable. We had Bob on this tour which most reviews boasted about. Bob was a delight for sure, very informed on the haunted history and very much in character and welcoming to make this an unforgettable experience. He had jokes, he had wit, and he had the facts so what else could you ask for? Well besides driving around the neighboring egg harbor location telling stories we were able to stop at

several locations on our journey. (A few houses, harbor, light house, and a cemetery! We were also informed of a small family cemetery in peninsula state Park that is tucked away only 40 ft off the main road but not broadcasted either.

The night went by at a great pace and photos were encouraged to catch any "activity". I don't want to go on too much to ruin anything but the ride home for us was very fun and interactive. I can't say if all the guides do this and also it was Bobs last tour ever so maybe that made it that much more special, but if any of the guides are half as captivating as Bob then you can't go wrong going on this tour. I definitely recommend the night even though I never went on the day tour but it just seems more appropriate for the setting(to me anyways).

Our family enjoyed the great story telling of our tour guide. Not as much scary as it was good ghost history of Door County. Money well spent. A fun night.

Not Disappointed at all

I think the whole thing was made awesome because of our tour guide - Bob. Too bad that was his last tour. He made the whole thing. Not sure how it would be with other tour guides. I think he was one of a king.

Fun way to spend 2 hours

My wife and I made reservations for the Halloween Night tour. It was a lot of fun! Bob, our tour guide (now retired, we were his last tour), was phenomenal. Great stories and great atmosphere. The Noble house tour in Fish Creek and the lighthouse and cemetary stops in Peninsula State Park were highlights. There was a lot of history to understand and explore later. Highly 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 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...
