Meet your tour in downtown Pensacola and climb on board a 1930 Ford transit bus (or another vehicle) for an experience unlike any other. The tour begins at the Fort George Historic Site, a British fort built in 1778 to protect the city. The fort no longer exists, but part of it was later recreated to mark its original location.

Much of the North Hill neighborhood was a battlefield in its earliest days. In fact, locals still unearth artifacts from that era today.

See various styles of architecture, including pine shake roofs. Learn why and when asbestos shingles were popular. Check out interior styles and hear an assortment of interesting stories involving everything from roman candles to azaleas.

One mansion has no central heat. Find out why. There’s also a rehabbed ‘hippy house’ and homes belonging to Marilyn Monroe’s mother and Wallis Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor and an American socialite. And the ‘Jingle Bells’ house, whose owner was the son of composer James Pierpont, who penned the tune in 1850.

This fun, engaging tour is perfect for those interested in buying an old house—or anyone who is simply enthralled by this unique Pensacola neighborhood.

Took tour on January 6th with 3 other family members. The tour was informative and the houses were nice to see. The video you watch while on the bus gave interesting facts about the homes. At the end of the tour you get to go in one of the homes it is owned by the owner of Go Retro. It was a bonus to get to go inside one of the homes but we were not allowed upstairs. It was a little odd since a family currently lives in the house but the owner was gracious and answered our questions. The bus has some sort of water leak so one of us had to move seats, the driver was apologetic. It would have been nice to have the bus warmed up when we got on as it was very cold. The driver was accommodating for taking pictures and gave us information about other sites to see in the area.
