We met our tour guide (Laurie) at The Old Fish House Restaurant. We were given some history of the restaurant by William (filling in for the owner, Lisa), and some delicious free fish samples and a bottle of water. We then left for the walking tour. Laurie is very knowledgeable of the area. It was great fun and a lot... More

We took the tour on Tuesday and it was well done. 1.5 hours and it went fast. Old Fish House, Art Gallery, Community Park, and Fudge Shop Tour guide was very good and thorough. Worth the $18/person

The walking tour of the historic downtown of Fort Myers was informative. Learning about the individuals who developed the downtown area and some of the competition between these folks certainly brought the history alive. Seeing the historic buildings was so interesting. This 90 minute tour involves walking most of the time but you walk along the sidewalks so it is... More

I grew up in Fort Myers and familiar with a lot of the early history so I was interested in how the guide would conduct it. Gina stayed right on with the facts and did not embellish the history with her own interpretation. The tour touched the major "high points" of the downtown history, which about all she could have...

So much fun! Lauri is one of the best tour guides I've ever had. Learned so much about this colorful town that I didn't know previously, even after numerous visits. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The True Tour of Matlacha, a small fishing village/artist colony west of Ft Myers, was excellent ... a great mix of history, ecology, ghost stories, and "old Florida" lore, with a sampling of local fish and fudge thrown in for good measure. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our River District History Tour in Fort Myers. The tour was good value, easy to book and join the group. Our guide was passionate and engaging and she delivered heaps of interesting information in a clear and understandable way. The fans that everyone is given are fun, useful and practical in several ways. We felt that the... More

We took the historic walking tour of Ft. Myers, FL. Our tour guide, Seth, grew up just blocks from downtown and his combination of knowledge and passion for Ft. Myers made this a great experience. We brought friends who winter in the area as they had never been on this tour - they liked it so much they are recommending... More
