A very worthwhile morning!
Seth, our guide was knowledgeable, funny and considerate. We were lucky to have him. We enjoyed the tour, learning much about a city that we have lived in for over 20 years. I would definitely recommend this tour to our friends!

A Tour you must take if you want to understand the area
Jun 2021
Our favorite part of the tour was Seth being our guide. His stories and explanations were incredibly detailed as well as being completely fascinating. We learned so much about the important people in the history of Fort Myers. His stories were really exciting and made you feel like you were a part of the action at the time. Seth has a wonderful memory and getting all the information he tells you completely accurate is a passion for him. Seth is amazing!!!

Entertaining & Informative
Jun 2021 • Solo
Entertaining and informative tour! Congenial host, Seth, provided great commentary. Highlights of the 1.5 hour tour were architecture, gov/military, agriculture, demographics, founding history thru today, and the genealogy of major historical citizens. Helpful intro to downtown Fort Myers!

Wonderful Historic Walking Tour
Mar 2021
Three of us were on the Historic Tour today (03/04/2021). The day was rather cool, but the tour was excellent. A wonderful mix of history and humor with great sketches of the people who began today's Fort Myers. Surprisingly, hardly a mention of Edison, Ford, or Firestone ~ There's so much to the city's story independently of those three gentlemen. Gina is an exception tour leader. I would highly recommend this walk!

Wonderful way to spend a morning.
Mar 2020 • Couples
We followed our tour leader Seth around on a beautiful Florida morning and learned the history of many of the beautifully restored buildings in Fort Myers. Seth was quite knowledgable and it was clear he loves both his home town and its history. I would highly recommend this very affordable and interesting tour.

VERY GOOD WALKING TOUR OF FORT MYERS
Mar 2020 • Friends
This walking tour was a very good introduction to the city of Fort Myers, Florida. The guide was very knowledgeable and had several stories to tell about his childhood and family growing up in the city. He was fully professional, but stressed his family history a little more than would be my taste.

Walking Tour
Had a very informative and enlightening tour by Seth of historic Fort Meyers. He not only is a lifelong resident ( cracker) of Fort Meyers but also entertaining. He gave credit to his ancestors who were in the cattle industry. Great tribute to his and our heritage. Seth was very articulate and informative. Brought humor into the tour and was truly loving his job.

The good, the bad and the ugly.
I have mixed thoughts from this tour. The good: very knowledgeable, passionate and capable tour guide (Seth). This is a very informative tour, with many great highlights of Ft. Myers. Seth knows how to manage a group. Here is where I was uncomfortable: Seth is passionate, and sometimes this gets in the way. We met a competing tour on the street. Seth provoked and argument of who had the ‘right’ to the sidewalk. It was very uncomfortable. Seth made sure to tell us that the competing guide did not know what he was talking about. This was unprofessional. Whether this was a competing tour, or even an unauthorized tour, this was not an appropriate response. This confrontation affected Seth for the next 5-10 minutes of the tour. He was seething- and it showed. All things considered- take this tour- you will learn a lot, and have a few laughs. One last pet peeve of mine: I am turned off by tour guides who tell me to only give 5’s on the Tripadvisor reviews.
