    Daniel was extremely knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. Enjoyed his "storytelling" versus dry infomercial type delivery.
    Response from Host, Dec 2022
    We always try to make our tours an experience that you will remember as being a high point of your vacation. Lots of history and some slightly off beat characters that exerted authority over this small island. I am so delighted that you had a great time and we really appreciate your taking the time out to leave this valuable feedback. It means everything to us to keep the bar really high in content and delivery. Thank you so very much!

    Daniel was a very engaging speaker who knew lots of info on the history of Amelia Island. He gave us extra time on the tour. We enjoyed looking at all the notable/historic homes and hearing why these homes were of interest.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    I really appreciate your great feedback as it’s alway a great welcome when I have a little extra time to introduce a small snippet of the historic homes and people that made the difference as to why this is such an amazing place to tour and visit. The 8 Flags and Historic homes are separate tours, but when time allows a sneak preview, it’s always a fun addition!,

    Ed_P, Apr 2022
    It’s not often that you hit the perfect trifecta of tours ….good weather, small group ,and most importantly a very knowledgeable tour guide, Daniel Daly. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the island’s long history. We travel extensively and this was one of the best tours we’ve taken. We did not want it to be over

    Trip down memory lane
    Gloria_B, Apr 2022
    Cemetery tour and the history of the people buried there. The story of the nuns and the crosses that represented them was amazing. The history of the families that lived in the historical houses.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    The cemetery at Bosque Bello is indeed a fascinating tour in it’s own right. The people that lived in the Historic Downtown area throughout the Golden Years of Fernandina are fascinating and gets you close to a trip back in time. We are always ecstatic and over the moon when we read that having a choice, you chose us and we got it right for your vacation. Please come and see us again on your next visit to the Island.
    Very informative
