Arrived with family after an hours drive, but disappointed in the rather run-down appearance of the town. Went there primarily to go on a 2-hour lake tour, but having arrived and waited for Captain Doolittle (with another family waiting), it would appear that the name is reminiscent of the verb; Captain Doolittle never arrived and no boat trip happened. Strongly advise that you ring to confirm boat trip is running before departing for Mount Dora. If there is absolutely nothing else to do and you have all the time in the world, then Mount Dora might be worth a visit.
