      Not a hop on hop off bus tour.
      Not a true hop on hop off tour. Only got out of the van 3 stops. One of the stops being the Visitors Center. Tour was not in the retro bus it was in a van. Disappointed.

      Get to Know Pensacola like you never did
      Terry was the best tour guide! We really enjoyed the tour and his commentary. He was sweet and knowledgeable! This tour is a must do. The bus was air conditioned, the tour was informative, and fun. You get to see lots and make stops along the way. Totally recommend

      Great tour!
      I really enjoyed this tour. We got to see so many things that ordinarily I wouldn't have known to look for! Mr Terry Sanders, our driver/tour guide was simply AMAZING. He was so knowledgeable and his love for Pensacola really shone through. I wish we could have stayed longer so I could have gone on the ghost tour!

      Florida's Greatest Secret
      The tour was wonderful! Terry, our tour guide, treated us like royalty. He was very knowledgeable and added a great deal of information from his own research. We learned so much and considered this time and money well spent. I am excited to take one of his other tours the next time we come to Pensacola, the hidden gem of the state of Florida.

      "An Unforgettable Ghost Investigating Adventure: Exploring the Paranormal on My Son's 18th Birthday"
      I took my son Ghost Investigating on his 18th birthday as a surprise trip, following a last-minute suggestion from a complete stranger. And I am so glad I did. Were there ghosts? I don't know; that's for the individual to decide. But there were definitely very specific unexplainable things that happened, which were very personal to me. The house is old—1900s old—and it's beautiful! Even if you aren't into Ghost Hunting, the house and history alone are enough to enjoy. Almost everything there is original, which is exciting for ghost hunters because those are triggers for the afterlife to become active. The house is huge, with secret rooms, and the history is rich. Upon walking in, I was immediately hit with a heaviness and a somewhat nauseated, dizzy feeling. I can only describe it as being under sedation or a narcotic without food in your stomach. Or maybe similar to the Gravitron carnival ride at your local fair when you try to lift your head off the pads at full speed. My personal experience will not be anyone else's, and I am pretty sure I was the only one on that trip who felt this way. I felt like this almost the entirety of the adventure, but I didn't want to ruin it for my kid, so I sat (because I had to) 90% of the time. We were given several ghost-hunting tools, like temperature lasers, EMF detectors, touch-activated objects that light up, and even a Spirit Box. Most of the items went off or did things no one could explain, and that was exciting. What hit me hard was the Spirit Box. Two messages came through that were very specific to me and were about situations that aren't public knowledge. The tour guide, Mama Ivy (who is fantastic!), was extremely knowledgeable and upbeat. You can tell she loves what she does, and another surprise to me, I had met her as a kid! I really didn't expect so much from the trip, but it blew me away. The messages were very important, and the time I spent with my family was unforgettable. And my 18-year-old? He LOVED it and he wants to come back. I would recommend anyone to go on this trip; it was calm, the lights stayed on (because the ghosts wanted them on), and it was fun as the spirits apparently have huge personalities, some that are sarcastic and funny.

      Terry was the greatest tour guide! Such an enjoyable time! Terry made the trip perfect for my family. He knew everything about the area (part of the family's local), & has a servants heart. Wonderful day!

      We truly enjoyed our tour. Our guide was wonderful and went above and beyond for all the guests. The only recommendations I would suggest would be a more professional exterior and signage.

      Friendly staff
      We were signed up to do the ghost tour but it was canceled because there weren’t enough people signed up. Ivy called us and gave us options, and we chose the hop on/off tour. Ivy and our bus driver (I cannot remember his name!) were super friendly and knowledgeable. It was a fun way to see Pensacola and learn about the history.

      Good tour- but not a hop on/off option
      Very informative tour of Pensacola more suited for middle-aged to older couples. The tour guide was very informative and pointed out several parts of Pensacola that you might otherwise miss. The name “Hop on Hop off” is misleading, since you will travel through all of the stops, and then are allowed to take the next tour to the point where you want to get off.

      Very enjoyable!
      Loved all the stops that was included and learned a lot! It wasn’t hop on/off per se due to the time we when, but you could request a drop off and they would come to pick you up. You get a lot of perks with the bracket you! I would book now😉

    Love the tour! The guide entertained us with interesting, spooky tales as he drove us around the city. We visited some pretty intense sights and were invited to walk around in the cemetery and visit a historic house! Was awesome. Will definitely book another tour with the company (they have several to choose from). Was great!

    My wife and I had a great time on the Ghosts and Graveyard tour! The tour was comprised of an hour and a half of stories from both the tour video and the driver. About halfway through the tour we were able to step out of the bus for a few minutes to walk through part of the St. John Cemetery. Would recommend as a fun date!

    Very interesting tour of various haunted places around the city culminating in a spooky sojourn in St John’s cemetery. I wish I could remember where the haunted houses were. It would be awesome if the video was provided for sale. I would even buy a list of the addresses.

    The tour was well worth the $25 per person that we paid! Ivey was a great gal, and very knowledgeable about the homes and the stories of the area. The 2 tour is by air conditioned van and most of the info is on the big screen video, so not much walking. Very enjoyable!

    The tour guide was amazing, very funny, and made the overall experience that much better. If you’re in the area I highly recommend checking them out! She gave us extra info that wasn’t on the video and chatted with her charges. Overall an amazing experience highly recommend!

    I went to visit a friend in Pensacola and signed us up for this. We both enjoyed the ghost stories and I really liked being able to stop at one of the Victorian homes that was believed to be haunted...I didnt experience anything while there, but the house was beautiful and the host grew up and still lives in the house. I also liked knowing where the haunted places were so during the rest of my visit I kept looking for ghostly experiences...I didn't have any, but liked the idea. I enjoy horror movies so I was not afraid at any point, just fun.

    I was excited to go on this tour but my friend was not, she is not a fan of ghost tours but agreed to go. We both really enjoyed it. It was a good deal of history and details about the city and its former residents. It was interesting and our guide was hilarious. So glad we went!!

    It was very cheesy. You basically just drive around while a video plays. You'll stop in front of someone's house while the video tells you about a murder that happened there amd then you drive again. You only stop once at a graveyard, which was pretty cool, but I would've rather just done that ourselves so we had time to walk around.

    This was by far the absolute best tour I have been on anywhere. If I could give it 10 stars I would! The bus was clean , comfortable and not to crowded only 13 people per tour. There were large TV screens on the bus with a narrator explaining everything which was so much better than the normal driver being the narrator. Although Ivy was fabulous, she added to the narration and took us into the graveyard. She was super GREAT!!!!! We live here and I can't wait to go on the rest of their tours. Highly recommend.

    I was in town for just a few days and this was the perfect way to see and tour Pensacola! We rode in a vintage 1953 bus and for two hours drove thru all the old, historic neighborhoods and downtown area, seeing all the beautiful houses and historic landmarks. Each seat has a screen that tells the haunted history of all the places you are seeing, but our driver was wonderful and pulled over many times to tell us more facts and stories! St John's graveyard was my favorite spot. It's an old, charming but spooky, Gothic graveyard that is still used today. You'll get to get off the bus and walk around a bit. Take lots of photos! You'll never know when you may capture a mysterious orb or see something you didn't see with the naked eye!
    All in all, I had a great time and this was the perfect way to see all the parts of town and the downtown area when you don't have a lot of time to explore on your own. I highly recommend it!
