“Great tour”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Loved seeing Cumberland island. Having a very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide was a plus. Bernie (a volunteer) knew everything we needed to know and wanted to know. Get ready for a very bumpy ride through untouched forests. Hear all about the history of the island and see the church where JFK Jr. was married. Lots of "potty" stops. The only thing I would have liked to do was see the beach, but it wasn't on the tour. It was a day well spent. Book ahead since there are only two vans, each holding ten people, per day.

“the best of Georgia!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This guided tour is probably the best thing we did during 2.5 months in coastal Georgia. Best of all are the extremely knowledgeable National Parks Service guides who provided us with a wealth of fascinating information...that we could be assured was accurate. The tour also offers a handicapped accessible van for those who find it difficult to climb up into the back of a regular van, and the whole tour is quite accessible even for those with limited mobility. Prepare to be bumped around a bit, and pack a quick lunch, because there will no time for dilly dallying on this day packed with amazing experiences! As Canadians, we were jealous that our national Parks are no longer funded to a level that allows them to have such knowledgeable interpreters on site year round.

“Great tour of the north end of the island”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This was a great van tour of the north end of the island. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour if your only going to the island for one day. The tour is full of great stories and history of the island. The ride can get very bumpy because the road is a sand/dirt road and is hard to keep maintained. Make reservations ahead of time for this tour, and it is well worth the $15 per person for the tour.
