Mediocre tour spoils it. Interesting and pleasant to wander around. The tour was a real let down, very uninspiring. Nice to see that at least there was a proper historic district.

My GF and I started at the Wentworth building and bought tickets. We were shown all of the buildings that we could access and also told of the walking tour that would get us into the remaining buildings. What a great deal. We started wandering and had a great conversation with the carpenter who was making a bread bowl. We... More

The area around the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival was set around the Historic Pensacola Village combining history, education, fun, art, shopping! Well worth the effort to park & walk, we loved the historic village!

We really enjoyed our visit to the Historic Pensacola Village. I would highly recommend taking the escorted tour, because if you explore on your own, you will not have admittance to very many of the homes. It was a lovely way to learn about Pensacola's history and the guide was very knowledgeable.

Free to see unless you want to pay for a guided tour. The homes in the area are beautiful and if you're interested in history or even architecture to a certain degree, I would definitely recommend this.

We arrived at the Historic Pensacola Village before it opened at 10:00. So, we had a chance to walk around and look at some of the homes and other parts of the village. There are many places you can walk into without a guide but some of the homes need a guide. We really didn't want to talk the time... More

Take the guided tour offered in the Wentworth Museum. Impressive reconstruction of historic and interesting locations. The walk is easy and educational.

I was overwhelmed by the extent of this area in Pensacola. And while some properties feature displays and docent, most are inhabited by shops and residences. Re-purposed structures abound. Also, you can walk the archeological trail inasmuch as some structures were built over the Spanish and English forts.

We took the tour, 6 of us for $38.00 (I think) well worth it. All the kids that were involved knew their stuff. Being an older gentleman I have been to a FEW of these throughout the country. We even went through some of the other buildings without the tour guide. Impressive and informative.

My wife and I are locals and Historic Pensacola Village is a "must see" for our visiting guests and we always pick up new bits of information ourselves. A guided tour (conducted by students of the University of West Florida) is highly recommended. A self guided tour is also available but the docents add a lot of value to the... More
