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.

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!,

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

I really appreciate the maximum 10 out of 10 and 5 stars for good measure! It’s alway the perfect environment when a small intimate group with a love of local history ride out with us and immerse themselves in the fabulous legends this island has to offer. It’s without a doubt the most magical of islands, with a deep and interesting past. Thank you for taking the time out to leave this review and we look forward to seeing you again on one of our other tours on your next visit to the island.

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.
icon 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.

Your 5 Star review is really appreciated. This Island is truly amazing and it’s history is unlike any other place. From Native Timucuan Indians and being the only place to have flown 8 independent flags over it’s 450 years plus evolution. A great opportunity for us to show you want you want to find out and take away an experience of a lifetime.

Our guide, Daniel, was friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. He made us feel welcome and readily answered our questions about the History of Amelia Island. Perhaps he could show others interesting sites around the island too
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Thank you for your feedback. We're happy you had a good experience on our tour! There are other interesting places to see on Amelia Island, but the 'Eight Flags Road Tour' is only about the eight flags that have flown here over the course of history, and the area we tour was where all the action was. We will be adding other tours in the near future that will explore many other places of the island, so if you come back to visit, look us up and see what's new. Again, thank you for your feedback, and we hope you come back again to enjoy the beauty of Amelia Island!

The tour consisted of a bus ride through the historic areas of Amelia Island with frequent stops at historic homes and a cemetery. We never left the bus to view the interiors of the homes or to walk through the cemetery, Our guide, Daniel, was excellent and provided a detailed history of the historic period when 8 different flags flew on the Island. All in all, we did not find the history to be particularly interesting.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you did not find Amelia Island's history to be interesting. Our guides work very hard to research and provide accurate historical facts and we take great pride in that. As for the historical homes in the area, they are privately owned and we cannot intrude in their personal lives to view the interiors. The historic homes are not part of our tour, and our guides will sometimes add a drive-by view at the end of the tour as a bonus. There are only 3 areas along the tour route that the city allows us to stop and get out, but they limit us to 5 minutes, so we don't often utilize that unless a guest requests to get out and take pictures. Thank you again for your feedback.
