Not sure of the name of the tour we took

We took the horse drawn carriage tour and thoroughly enjoyed it and the driver/guide, Renee. She was very informative about the history of the island.

Parked outside was a trolley with a huge capacity, however they were sold out in their little Jeep pulled Tour. Bought tickets for 1PM tour. At 1:00 PM while waiting for more, people got off to use the restrooms. These people did this until 1:20PM. All the tour driver did was wait! When a tour is scheduled for 1:00PM it... More

The Segway fun tour was a highlight of a great Thanksgiving weekend at Jekyll Island for my wife and I. This was our first time riding a Segway and I was eager to try one. The tour operator Karen chatted with us initially to get to know us and then got down to the business of training us properly and... More

This is an interesting part of American history. A very beautiful island with tours of historic mansions built by the super wealthy of late 19th century and early 20th. The trolley tours are tacky and uncomfortable and I did not appreciate our guide subtle hints for tips at the end. Our tour started later than scheduled and we were rushed... More

The other tours may be better but the Trolley Tour was a waste of time. The people involved were very unfriendly. Guess they are used to not having to worry about competition and figure they can act however they want.

We called on the way to Jekyll Island if the trolley tour was still going on since it was a Friday afternoon. The person said yes but failed to say we needed to be there 10 minutes before the tour began. We arrived five minutes before the tour and another family was already trying to buy tickets. They refused to... More

Tour gave background info on island and buildings etc. My husband and I brought out 7 month old along and during the first on site tour the baby got fussy so I excused myself outside so not to interrupt the guide...

Took the ghost tour with 7 family members and friends. We all loved it. Our guides were interesting and very knowledgable of the island. It lasted slightly over a hour and took us to several interesting places on the island. We met the trolley at the restroom area near the Jekyll club hotel, pier area. I booked the tour over... More

Kathy, our Tour Guide was knowledgeable and humorous. The tour drove by all of the wealthy families' cottages, the Club House, and the ruins. The tours were given at 11:00, 1:00, and 3:00. The cost for two adults was just under $34 which included the museum itself, a guided tour of two restored cottages plus entrance to Faith Chapel with... More
