Awesome tour guide

I ended up being the only person scheduled for my tour, and Daniel still delivered the full experience. He was extremely knowledgeable, answered all of my questions, and even tailored the route in real time based on our conversation. That was probably the best part of the tour—it was a conversation instead of a monologue. I definitely recommend this tour if you want to get a good (and entertaining) overview of the history of Amelia Island. Thanks, Daniel!

Who Knew?

Who knew that Amelia Island had such a rich and varied history and that the architecture was so beautiful and interesting? Daniel was the best guide and clued my wife and me into all the history of the island. He is a wealth of knowledge and kept us comfortable as we drove around in his van exploring the sights. And of course we had to accept his challenge of partaking in the yummy Pirate Punch at the historic Palace Saloon. Thanks Daniel for a great and informative tour!
Eight Flags - Great history lesson!
