Very comfortable despite chilly morning. Our driver, D J, was excellent. Lot of great sights, good stories, history. Hop on/off or just stay on. Good value. They will let you ride around once, staying on, and then ride again hopping on and off at the spots (of 15, that you want to explore. Recomended.

Our tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed all the food stops, they were all unique places with amazing food! We also felt like the stops were almost all places we wouldn’t have found or gone into otherwise which was great. Overall we were very impressed with the tour!

We had a fabulous time. Lisa was a wonderful teacher and knowledgeable guide. Our tour around the historic district was both fun and educational. A definite must do!

We enjoyed the riverboat cruise very much. The captain provided an interesting and entertaining commentary on what sights we were passing. We even saw some dolphins!
