Carla is passionate about her city. She gives you the history of before and after Katrina; showed us the neighborhoods that are there now and told us about the ones that were destroyed. We would not have known this city without her insight. So glad we happened to meet her.

An easy and comfortable way to see the sites and hear about the community. No worries about parking or maneuvering through unfamiliar streets. I had read a review that said not to sit in the front car because of fumes. Our family ended up in that car and had no issues with any fumes. Seeing the Mardi Gras costumes was... More

Our tour guide was super nice and knows the area well. She tools us around to places we may not have seen if we had gone around on our own. If you get the chance take this tour it is informative and fun.

We just happened to be at the Biloxi Visitor Center when we spotted the Biloxi Tour Train sitting in the parking lot across the street. Because we were in town without a vehicle this was a great way to see downtown Biloxi. Miss Carla is a Biloxi native and had many great stories about her hometown. Our favorite part of... More

Be sure to call if you are interested in taking the tour. The website and the visitors center had wrong information. The tour times listed didn't happen while we were there and the one we ended up doing wasn't listed. Don't sit in the first or second row if you are sensitive to fumes - at times it was uncomfortable... More

As this was my first visit to Biloxi, I was interested in learning about the history of the city. Carla is a hometown girl and was very friendly and people around the city seem to be the same. We were shown the downtown area with a historic narrative, hurricanes Katrina and Camille were covered and we could actually see some... More
