About Jacksonville Walking Tours
Tuesday 10am Jacksonville History tour, Thursday 10am Art & Architecture tour and Friday 8pm River City Haunts ghost tour. Both Tues/Thurs tours go into the secret underground tunnels; the buildings we enter are like characters you meet along the way. All walking tours meet at the bottom of the Jacksonville Landing escalators at 9:45am. Walking distance about 1 mile. Best place to park is at the Landing's lot, under the Main Street Bridge ($2 for first 3 hours). Tues/Thurs tours finish before noon and are rain OR shine since most of the tour is inside of buildings. Email or Call to reserve.

This walking tour had all the history gems and came in a package with funny jokes and food weather. All of a sudden, Jax emerged as the first Hollywood and a city of secret tunnels. Molly is super knowledgeable and tactful. All in all, highly recommended.

This was an excellent tour that gave an overview of all of Jacksonville. We went to most of the neighborhoods, saw great architecture, sampled chocolate coated popcorn, saw the roots of the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd, home of the Jax Jaguars, and the Episcopal Cathedral! Gary is extremely knowledgeable about the city and has many tours to fit different interests. Highly recommended.

I was a corporate host to one of our International teams and the history tour was a great activity! The group really loved the bank vault visit and the history of the banks downtown in general. Another highlight is the map room in the library. It is a must see. Thanks to Gary for all the history gems.

We greatly appreciate the Review and hope you will come back to do one of our other private tours that are popular with corporate groups, e.g. "Legends, Liars & Lagers" walking tour. No all of our 90 tours are listed so we send the list to group leaders as requested. Have a wonderful day.

We greatly appreciate the Review. You are correct, while we incorporate a couple of resting stops during the tour, this is a walking tour going around 12 blocks so wear comfortable shoes. Thx

I booked this tour for my team and we really enjoyed it - as a Jacksonville native, I was surprised with some of the things I didn't know - the bank vault was cool and the library map room was a site to see - Gary knows his history - do not miss this! Also, stop at Welcome Jacksonville tourist center downtown for lots of interesting info. Even though it was hot, Gary made sure to take us into the AC and stop at shady spots whenever possible. Cant say enough good things about this tour. definitely recommend!

We greatly appreciate the Review. So much fun to take both locals and out of town guests on a tour that has something for everyone. Everyone likes a group photo in the secret vault. There are more flavors of tours we can do for groups. Have a wonderful day!
