Bob is an amazing storyteller. It is obvious he loves what he does. The tour was a perfect mix of local lore and performance. I'm curious to learn more about Door County's colorful history. I would highly recommend this tour for kids and adults.

Bob was a wonderful guide!! He was very enthusiastic and passionate when he told the stories. He has been doing this a while so the personal experiences and feedback from others experiences helped make the stories. Its neat to hear about the history of the Door County families area through these stories. LOVED the sign along on the way back from the light house ...that trip back to the station could have been quiet and boring but instead was GREAT fun. He encourages participation from all. We even went in search of the Pioneer Cemetery before we left town AND would have never known it was there(we made a little rock formation for little Hugh). We Highly recommended and when we return to the area we will DEFINATELY look forward to other trolley tours with Bob. THANK YOU

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...
