You can access the schedule for these informative St. Petersburg walking tours at the St. Petersburg Preservation Society's website. Conducted by knowledgeable St. Petersburg resident volunteers, at $10 per person they are a true bargain. Better yet, join the society and take as many tours in a year as you would like (a 3-month "snowbird," I did this and have... More

We saw someone giving a walking tour on Saturday looked up the web site and took a one hour tour on Friday at noon. It was hosted by Emily, who was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the sites. We are looking forward to taking their other tours soon. (hopefully with Emily)

This is a very interesting and educational tour of the craftsman style homes of Kenwood. We saw many homes from the "before" to "after" renovation stage. Our guide provided interesting commentary about the style and construction of these homes which date back about 90 years. One couple actually invited all of us in to view their renovated home.

Yesterday, we took an historic walking tour with St. Pete Preservation Society and I highly recommend it. The knowledge in our guide was amazing and we learned so much about St. Pete. Our tour was down and around Central Avenue and included the Detroit Hotel, City Hall and Williams Park.

My wife and I found this on TripAdvisor just the night before the tour and it was a valuable find. The Uptown historical architectural tour amazingly took us right down the street where we are staying!

We've done nearly every one that Emily and Peter et al offer, including the varied ones on the third Saturday of the month. It has been a wonderful way to get to know and enjoy the 'neighboring' big city about 45 minutes from where we call 'home'. The suggested donation of $5. is a lovely way to sweep in tourists...

These tours are on Saturdays for the most part during October to May - cooler walking months in our parts. Don't miss them! It's a quick study on the area and a wonderful way to learn about the locale! Friendly, short walks lasting about 2 hours.
