Hi, I moved to Florida right before the state went into lockdown. I am now starting to explore Florida and thought Amelia Island would be a good start on history and the different types of locations that Florida has to offer. I am from snow and desert this is a big difference living in Florida. I took the tour Amelia Island Historic Tour with Daniel and was not disappointed. The information of the Island and the history of the backstories of the people of the island were a great introduction to the island and its history. I will defiantly take this tour again when visiting the island. Thank you, Daniel. Alecia

We spent the morning on our first day in Fernandina Beach taking this tour and it as the perfect way to learn about the history of this amazing place and get our "bearings" around the island! Daniel was a great guide and provided so much information during the tour. Everyone wore their masks while in the van, so we never felt uncomfortable. Highly recommend this tour for first time visitors!
