Pick up the tour in carpark by the Lighthouse. Tour guide is very good and takes pride in showing visitors around Biloxi. Tour takes you around downtown which is a good way to get your bearings and learn more about the area , although Biloxi doesn`t seem to be that big a place. Also stopped at Hurricane Katrina Memorial. I... More

We are so glad we did this tour. Carla was a delight and we learned so much about Biloxi before and after Katrina in 2005. We appreciate even more what the citizens and city went through and continues to come back from. Resilience us an understatement.

This was on the spot decision, we were coming from the Visitors Center and I saw the train across the street. We drove over and just barely made the tour. It goes down Old Biloxi driving by some of the Old Victorian Homes in the area. It also passes by the vacant spots where homes and businesses were lost to... More

It felt like we had a personal tour of Downtown Bloxi history, although there were about thirty of us on this tour. The tour guide is a life long Biloxi resident and it's easy to see that she loved here home town. She was friendly, humorous and laid back. It's been ten years, but it is clear that she feels...

This was a cute little ride that told good information about the gulf coast. I had lived in Gulfport for a while and took guest on the trip and I learned things that I hadn't known before. It is worth your while if you want to learn more about the coast!

We had a blast. We have been to Biloxi many times but this was our first time on the "train". It was hot, so dress for the weather. Fun time!

My mom and I actually heard about this tour in the visitor's center. We immediately jumped to it! And we enjoyed everything about it. Miss Carla was a sweet dear! She made you feel very welcoming. Not rude for one bit and never made in references as to tipping her. She knew a lot about Biloxi. We are from Louisiana... More

It was lucky for us that a group did not show up for the tour. Therefore, my family could spread out. I was there for a family reunion and 14 members took the tour. Six others went on the Shrimp Tour (They loved it). The tour was chock full of information. Carla was an excellent guide. The homes were quaint... More
