Tom’s tour was excellent, entertaining and informative. We had a great time strolling around the historic part of St. Augustine. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the city but also gave us tips on restaurants and other things to see in the area. We would highly recommend taking Tom’s tour if you are in St. Petersburg.

We had an incredible time! The scenic beauty, variety of wildlife, and stunning historic sights were simply amazing. Mac was our friendly guide, and his vast knowledge of the ecology and history of the area was awesome!!!! He made us feel very welcome. We would do this again any day!

Michelle was our super friendly and throughly knowledgeable guide. The time flew by and it was worth it to understand what one would personally like to spend more time exploring in St. Agustine.

Extremely knowledgeable guide who made the walk great fun.
