Good way to get your bearings in Jacksonville and learn a bit about the city. Poor mic system, though. Difficult to understand.

The acoustics on this trolley were very poor and at one point gave out entirely and the driver had to stop the tour and change batteries on his headset, which helped at first, but then the volume decreased again. If you were not sitting directly in back of him, it was very hard to hear and impossible to hear if any traffic was passing. He also had a habit of stopping in the sun and telling a story. so that those not in the shade were broiling. What I heard of the tour was entertaining and he pointed out many interesting sites. He should also make a point of making an announcement that others on the tour should refrain from having conversations and that, perhaps cell phones should be turned off. Two gentlemen with hearing aids decided to have their own conversations (probably because they could not hear the tour operator), but that meant there was no chance that those around them could her.

We thought this would be a good 20min diversion for the kids (they were getting antsy going in and out of the cute shops). For $5 per adult, big kids $3 and little kids free, it was excellent value, informative and the driver was fun. Love Jacksonville; very cute spot.

This is a relaxing and interesting way to learn about this historic town. The tour takes you to the outskirts of town, to places further than you might want to walk. Once you have been onboard, you can decide what you want to return to see in more detail. Cute town, nice people living there...all who will be happy to help you with any questions you might have.
