The historical information provided during the tour is second to none. The way in which Bob, our tour guide/trolley driver, delivered the information kept us interested throughout the event. His appearance/costume were most fitting. Would highly recommend this tour.

Bob was just spooky enough to set the mood, his delivery was that of a fine storyteller and his asides showed he had a sense of humor.

The tour was fun and Ed was a good tour guide. However, my seat was unacceptable. My friend and I had to sit in the seat up by the driver that faces sideways, there was no room for our feet and it was very uncomfortable. I don't know what the mix up was but I hope tickets aren't sold to fill this seat.

Bob our tour guide made the trip the best, from the spooky music in between stops, to his story telling and knowledge of past door county history, and him singing all the monster mixes on the ride home. Would highly recommend, you learn about some Door County History as well as go through some spooky houses, and cemeteries.

The tour was just over two hours and moved along at an acceptable pace. The guide was very friendly and humorous. He was well versed with the subject at hand. My 9 yr old granddaughter was with and she enjoyed the tour. Was money well spent, would recommend to others.

Bob was a great tour guide - he dressed the part, told very interesting and historical stories about the ghosts of Door County and had a great sing along on the way back from the last story location. Because of the weather, we only got out at 2 of the 4 locations that people usually get out on - one being a house and one being the graveyard where most of the story characters are buried. This tour is definitely worth the money!

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...
