The surprise of Fernandina!
, Jun 2022
Loved the tour and the history. The tour guide was awesome as well. He was friendly and passionate about history and his jokes were pretty good too. The flow of the tour was great. The walking distance was just right, not too long or too short. The early morning tour was completed before the massive heat.

Timothy was amazing. We didn’t even realize the tour lasted a little longer than 1.5 hours. The amount of information he has on this Island is extraordinary. This is an absolute must if you want to know everything about how Amelia Island came to be and the incredible history of the eight flags.

Entertaining walking tour!

We throughly enjoyed our walking tour with Timothy! We spent 3 days on Amelia Island and this activity really set the tone for our whole trip! Timothy was very knowledgeable about Amelia Island and his delivery was fun and interesting! It’s obvious he knows a lot of locals on the island and stays current! Our tour was in the middle of the afternoon! We appreciated Timothy accommodating us so we could stand in the shade to keep cool! He even stopped at a local restaurant so we could get a water! Timothy was prompt and friendly! We will definitely schedule another tour when we return to Amelia Island!
