This buggy ride - there were 4 of us - is a great way to see the historical city of Fernandina and its gracious homes without having to walk it yourself. Jim was our horse and Rita our driver....both great company. Rita knew a lot about the houses we passed - beautiful old Victorians - some of which are still... More

This tour was really good. Cindy is very knowledgable and her horse Jazz is super friendly. We took the tour on Christmas Eve which made everything extra pretty because of the Christmas lights. I really enjoyed it. The tour made me want to know more about the area.

We had a great time learning about the different houses and history of the town. Shelby was a great guide and knew the history well. She made us laugh and smile and we had a fantastic time. It was a beautiful night for a carriage ride which made it even better.

A must do if you staying at Amelia Island. Cyndi has so much local and institutional knowledge of the town, the houses and founding families. Wonderful experience and perfect for a couples romantic prelude to dinner out on the town. She will drop you right off in front of your restaurant. Beats a limo any day.

We loved our ride with Cyndi and her horse, All That Jazz! My husband and I took the tour with our 3 kids (11, 7, and 2). Although my toddler was lulled to sleep right away the rest of us enjoyed hearing about the historic homes and the families who lived and still live there. The standard tour was 30... More
