My husband and I took this tour yesterday and we really enjoyed the whole experience. Carla is a fun and knowledgeable guide. She made the time fun and we learned a lot about Biloxi and Hurricane Katrina's effect on the town. She provided blankets which where a good thing even with the sun and warm temperatures since it gets windy... More

Goes through town with a local guide that can tell you anything and everything about Biloxi. See actual water marks throughout town from Katrina and feel the warm Southern Hospitality from the locals along the way. Awesome Tour!!!

We took the Biloxi Tour Train to get a feel for the city. We had a wonderful time. The tour is an open-air train; dress accordingly! The guide, Carla, is a Biloxi native and is very proud of her city. She gave us a great history of the area and pointed out numerous points of interest. Honestly, we would have... More

Karla was our tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area, museums and eateries. She's been doing this tour for 21 years. She also provided us with blankets as it was a bit chilly! Great information given and she encouraged everyone on the tour to go back and visit on our own as well which we did.

This was an excellent tour of Biloxi, Mississippi. We did not have a lot of information on Biloxi prior to the tour and Carla gave us so much on the history of the area. She was very energetic, informative and entertaining. A definitely must do if you are in the area.

Just a friendly suggestion if you take this tour. Do not talk while the tour guide Carla is speaking. She will kindly yet firmly put a stop to it. Tour is only $15 . You can go across the street and get a $1 coupon from the tourist center(very nice place). Saw some history of the city and stopped at... More

I feel like this is the worst tour I have ever been on. The tour did not go anywhere actually historic or interesting for the most part. Although we saw some interesting places, Ms. Carla mostly took us to some very odd places for a historic tour. For example, we spent about 20 minutes in a graveyard with no significant... More

Perfect way to spend a few hours with a very informative tour guide, in an open-air "train" being brought deep into neighborhoods with various placed pointed out which I probably wouldn't have noticed on my own. Learned so much of the old history of Biloxi, as well as the more recent history, especially the effects of Katrina. Miss Carla doesn't... More

Every time is different and i learn something else about Biloxi. This is a fun entertaining, yet simple tour. No big bells or whistles you ride the train, make a few stops, learn facts about Biloxi and get to meet new people. HIGHLY recommend it!
