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

Great way to see Biloxi. Take a tour of all the sites and places in Biloxi. Sit back and relax while the guide explains the details.

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!

This was our first tour of Biloxi after Katrina. The tour guide gave an excellent description of what we were seeing.

Went on a very warm day, bottled water was supplied which helped with the heat. Fragmented story tour guide seemed very distracted and often went on tangents about people trying to steal her material and likeness by recording the tour in the past. Learned more about Biloxi by going to the maritime museum. Could be much better if tour guide... More

She knew her stuff! Only critique I would give is she said "well" too much. It was a fun ride and we did go eat at Burger Burger like she suggested and it was wonderful

I was in conference and the hubby toured with the train. He reviews were so good that the next day 4 of us joined in. The tour was fun and very informative. She told about local lore and the effects of Katina on the people there. It is a treasure in the Biloxi area and worth the same fee.

I recommend this tour to one who visits biloxi. My husband and I went on this tour on 6/28/2014. We had so much fun. We learned alot about the history of Biloxi, its architecture and of course the devistation that hurricane Katrina had on this beautiful city. Some might think that we should have heard more about architecture and history... More

Hardly any historical information whatsoever. Focused on landmarks with little significance, while overlooking important, beautiful architecture. You will be held captive for 2 hours listening to criticism of how the media and government neglected Biloxi after Katrina. There are great things to see and do in Biloxi, but this isn't one of them. Please don't waste your time or money.

Miss Carla, the host of the tour was very friendly and knew a lot of the history of the town, the hurricanes. It was also a cool day and she provided blankets for everyone on the tour which was a great gesture. Would definitely recommend if you are in Biloxi
