Pam was our tour guide and did a thorough and excellent job. I was looking for more history on Jacksonville which I thought was lacking on the tour. The amount of walking time was appropriate for what there was to see.

I had a wonderful time getting out and learning about Jacksonville on the Top to Bottom Walking Tour. Born and raised in Jacksonville, I thought I knew a lot about our history but still learned quite a few things on Gary's tour. I even got to see one of the underground bank vaults I've always heard about!

I took the Top to Bottom tour, and loved it. The view of the city, from the highest point, to the historic tunnels of the financial district, gave me an entirely new look at Jacksonville.

I had a really good time and learned a tremendous amount about Jacksonville on my tour. My guide Molly was super knowledgeable and took me to some areas that the public don't normally get to see like the old bank vault and the 42nd floor of the Bank of America Building. I highly recommend this tour to get a general... More

Whether you are a first time visitor to Jacksonville or a lifelong resident, this is a MUST DO tour! Pam was our guide and she was knowledgeable and fun - and went out of her way to make sure we really enjoyed ourselves. From the Landing to the hidden underground bank vaults to the oldest buildings in Jax - with... More

We enjoyed the Top to Bottom walking tour. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the city and its history. The children were engaged all the time and Gary was great at keeping the group very interested.

Highly recommend this tour! My family was looking for something fun and different to do in Jacksonville, and the top-to-bottom tour definitely fit that bill! We loved looking down from the "top" of Jacksonville, and our favorite part was the underground tunnel and old bank vault. We learned a great deal of Jacksonville's history and fun facts from our tour... More

This tour is good for all ages and you will see and learn things about good ole JAX that you never would've guessed! The tour is well-paced physically and verbally and was neither exhausting nor boring. Parking at the Landing is easy and cheap and provides lots of choices for a meal after the walk should you so desire. The... More
