Daniel our guide was extremely informative and engaging. He extended the tour for about 1/2 hour longer than advertised.

Really engaging tour! Daniel loves what he does and it shows. He gave us a little bit of the homes tour and the eight flags tour. He was funny, engaging, and informative. I've been going to Amelia Island for years and went to places I had never visited. I would definitely recommend the tour.

Entertaining and informative! Daniel, our tour guide gave us a wealth of information about the area, the people and its history. We had such fun touring in the van. It was very comfortable.

Thank you for your much appreciated 5 star review. There have been many colorful characters and an incredible diversity of history on this island. It is alway our intention to make this a fact based tour but also to inject as much fun as we go to make this a memorable experience for our guests. The vans cleanliness is always a major part of every trip with deep sanitation and the use of aromatherapy scents to create a relaxing atmosphere. Thank you for noticing this as it is a central part to everyday hygiene for the comfort of travelers.

So much great information on this trip—we had no idea about the history of the “real” oldest city in the USA. Daniel was a wonderful, energetic guide.

The island has many twists in regards to history and as you now know, some of those are fascinating to say the least. The Eight Flags that run through our islands history represent some of the most historical moments in American history and it is a pleasure that we take in letting that story unfold. Thank you for taking the time out to leave this 5 start review, it’s really appreciated!
