Had a great time on the bus tour, Stephanie was very knowledgeable & kept the ride interesting. The dolphin boat ride was excellent, the captain & second mate made it both informative & entertaining. Saw quiet a few dolphins, even saw them surfing the wave in front of a container ship. The light house tour was nice, very rich in history was a great learning experience & what a great hike up the 178 steps to the top of the light house.

It was a great tour, you get a little bit of historical background knowledge. The trolley driver was very nice. When you get out to Tybee island and on the boat for the dolphin tour the captain tell's you about Tybee and the resident dolphins. It's a very fun experience and you do actually see a lot of dolphins out playing! You get to go to the crab shack for lunch and it is amazing! You also stop by North Beach on tybee and can see the light house if you want. It's good family fun to do this tour.

The boat cruise was great and The Crab Shack. They could space people out. But, the ad is misleading, it states 14 people and you arrive and they put 25 people on a trolley and you are supposed to be social distancing with Covid. We were not properly spaced. If I had known I would have booked this differently.
