The tour was well worth the time and money. The leader knew her subject very well and was a pleasant person.

This tour was a lovely introduction to Mobile. We were only in town for two nights so it was a great way to experience the food and history in a short period of time. We enjoyed our host Lee and everyone on the tour. Thank you all for a wonderful afternoon.

Ok could have been better
Patricia_C, Sep 2022
The experience wasn't bad but it wasn't as fun or informative as it could have been. Our tour guide was very nice but not the best tour guide.
Response from Host, Sep 2022

When they say you will be full by the end they are not kidding! My group of eight had a fabulous time. We went for our Mothers birthday...80 years old and had lived in Mobile her entire life and even she learned some things about the city.

Backyard fun
Elena_D, Jun 2021
So great! I really can't give Catherine enough stars. She's a pro! Having not lived in Mobile for too long, I learned about and saw things that I still didn't know existed, like the big peanuts in the window above the Peanut Shack! Only one suggestion--bring enough Moon Pies for the out-of-towners so they know what you're talking about! :-D
Response from Host, Jun 2021
She is awesome! We’re so glad to have her on our team! That’s a great suggestion since we lost our Moon Pie store. Thank you for coming!

We enjoyed our time with our tour guide, Ryan. It was a great opportunity to learn about Mobile History. It was a good pace and duration for our 8mo old daughter as well. Great food and interesting history. I recommend doing this your first day in Mobile, so you know where to visit the following days.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
Hey Chris. Thanks so much for the kind words. I’m so glad you enjoyed your tour with Ryan!
