Did the walk and visited 3 spots - Isabel and Anabel’s, the Wyvern and Angela’s (last one has sadly closed); the appetizers were delicious and was adequate for the four participants! Obtained lots of local “pearls” of information from Evie, who certainly knows her local lore! Enjoyed the October tour so much I did another one on November and we visited three totally different spots! I highly recommend any of the tours!!

We did the Historical Haunted Walking Tour of Punta Gorda on March 1, 2019. Evie, our tour guide certainly did her homework and research because she shared tons of interesting information with us. We have lived in the Punta Gorda area for over 20 years and appreciate the facts and respect for history Evie delivered. It is a wonderful journey back through local time... with a focus on the lore of hauntings in the town. Thanks for a wonderful evening! Mary and Henry Ereth

Halloween, one of my favorite times of the year. This Pirate and her First Mate joined Evie, our tour and history guide extraordinaire, on a walkabout to Isabelle and Annabelle's (fresh-made, authentic Mexican food; the owner, Juan, is a gem! He visits table-side to chat and make visitors feel like family), Bella's Bistro (down-home cuisine with a NOLA flair), Ice House (Irish pub with incredible bangers and mash!), Perch 360 (rooftop bar at the Wyvern Hotel - you can see forever up there, the view of the bridge, water, boats, so so beautiful! And the Ruben sandwich with a twist is hard to beat), the Belgian Monk (specialty European beers, and be sure to ask for curry catsup with their famous fries), and tied it all up with a visit to Scoops, a family shop that hand makes all their ice cream. We found a flavor there that my husband hadn't had since he was a young boy! All in all, the places we visited were top-notch, and Evie's expert knowledge of the places to go along with the town history made for such an enjoyable day. We were stuffed at the end of the tour with all the food we ate; all the portions are generous. Dress casual, cool and comfortable for this 2-hour walkabout. A great idea to take kids or any visiting loved ones that have no walking difficulties. A+! You don't want to miss this one.

We had a great time with Evie on the Haunted Pub Walking Tour in Punta Gorda. Evie picked out some great historical stories to share with us about the people and places in Punta Gorda. We had the opportunity to sample food from five restaurants in downtown Punta Gorda. We spoke with the owners/managers, and that was a nice personal touch. My husband and I now have new places to visits for dining. Can't wait to go on some of the other tours offered by SW Florida Walking Tours.

Thank you for coming on our inaugural Haunted Punta Gorda Pub Tour. It was a fun evening, even the part where we got rained on! Looking forward to taking you on more tours around beautiful, historic downtown Punta Gorda!
