We enjoyed the Top to Bottom walking tour. It was a great opportunity to learn more about the city and its history. The children were engaged all the time and Gary was great at keeping the group very interested.

Highly recommend this tour! My family was looking for something fun and different to do in Jacksonville, and the top-to-bottom tour definitely fit that bill! We loved looking down from the "top" of Jacksonville, and our favorite part was the underground tunnel and old bank vault. We learned a great deal of Jacksonville's history and fun facts from our tour... More

This tour is good for all ages and you will see and learn things about good ole JAX that you never would've guessed! The tour is well-paced physically and verbally and was neither exhausting nor boring. Parking at the Landing is easy and cheap and provides lots of choices for a meal after the walk should you so desire. The... More

Our 3rd-5th grade students had the time of their lives seeing Jacksonville from a whole new perspective. It was a one of a kind field trip where the students not only saw the beautiful city of Jacksonville, but they learned all kinds of history. They loved the sites, the walk, the entertainment and eating at the Landing. I would highly... More

Our group of 37 students (2nd-8th grade) toured Jacksonville today with Mr. Gary Sass and Ms. Pam and had a wonderful time. Students are still excited about walking in the underground tunnels and seeing the beautiful aerial view of Jacksonville! Students were enthralled with the history of Jacksonville! Thank you!

My husband and I just finished the Jacksonville Top to Bottom tour and we loved it. We are Jacksonville natives but still learned many new things about our great city! The best part was the tour of the underground bank vaults and tunnels. And this tour is the only way to see these neat things. There are plenty of stops... More

Even as a Jacksonville native, I learned so much from the Tuesday edition of the "Top to Bottom" tour! The guide, Gary, was funny and engaging, and you can tell he has done his research. I especially enjoyed visiting the underground passageways and the early-nineteenth-century bank vault. The tour lasts just the right amount of time - less than two... More

A very interesting an informative tour through downtown Jacksonville! My husband and I and our adult son all thoroughly enjoyed the variety of information and sites that Pam took us to. We would highly recommend this pleasant way to learn about several aspects of history and culture, especially if you've never been to Jacksonville. Tip: park in the Jacksonville Landings... More
