Thu, Jul 16  7:00 PM Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
 
We were having a difficult time getting around due to lack of cell service and we got lost on the way to the tour. I called the tour to tell them our predicament and the young man told me we were about 15 minutes away (making us 10 minutes late) and we should hurry as fast as we could. When we got there 10 minutes late, the doors were locked . When I was about to leave a young man came out and told us he sent the trolley 5 minutes earlier. I asked him if someone could drive us up to where the trolley stopped so we could catch part of the tour, he said no one had time for that. I asked him if there was any chance of a refund and flatly said no and shut the door.

So we were 10 minutes late for the tour and I accept responsibility for that. The tour had no responsibility to refund our money and I accept that. However, if you have my money and have given me nothing for it, there is absolutely no reason to be rude to me as well. There were multiple ways he could have dealt with me. Disrespect and rudeness would not be my choice. While my wife and I will be spending many more summers in Door County, we will not be giving any more money to Door County Trolley.
 
Door County Trolley responded:
We appreciate your business and are sorry that happened. As noted on your e-ticket, our tour leaves promptly at 7 p.m. and states to arrive 30 minutes prior to departure. We held the trolley as long as possible, waited with a trolley full of guests even 10 minutes later than we were scheduled to leave and had to depart. We discussed with you that there was nothing more we could do since the trolley had already departed after waiting for your arrival. Because we were sold out and turned a number of people away that could have attended the tour, we have a No Refund policy. We'd like to have you back in the future to experience all Door County Trolley has to offer.

Yes, we highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance as tours often sell out. To ensure you get the day and time you want, we suggest purchasing well in advance. Tickets can be purchased using a Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
What happens if it rains?
Our tours run rain or shine and are always enjoyable no matter what the weather is like. Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather, though, as we will spend a portion of the tour off the trolley, as we tour the various "spirited" locations.
If an event is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?
We do not provide a waiting list. If a date is sold out, there is always a chance that we may add an additional event. Please contact us by clicking on the “Contact DoorTrolley” link to the left of the page to let us know what date you are interested in.

Does the trolley have heat and air conditioning?
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.

Less than half the tour is actually spent on the trolley. Trolley riders get off the trolley 4 times during the tour and spend 10-20 minutes at each stop. Weather appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended.

No, unfortunately there is no bathroom aboard the trolley. But there are bathroom facilities available at 2 stops on the Ghost Tour.
Is the trolley handicap accessible?
Unfortunately, our old-time trolley is not wheelchair accessible as there are approximately 3 steps up into the vehicle. However, we will be glad to help anyone who may need assistance.

If someone in your group has limited mobility and you have specific questions or concerns, please click on the "Contact DoorTrolley" link for more information before purchasing tickets.
How much walking will we do on the tour?
Guests will be getting off the trolley 4 times during the tour. Minimal to moderate walking will be required for short distances on the tour. Weather appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended.
Can I store anything on the trolley?

Are cameras or video cameras allowed on the tour?
We encourage the use of cameras and video cameras on this tour. There are many great opportunities to take photographs of both Door County's scenic and "spirited" places that we visit.

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...
