John and Paula, our tour guides are terrific, went to some restaurants and shops we might have missed on our visit to Mount Dora and they were great. So much fun, we will go back to the places that were on the tour, eat, drink and shop! Thank you John and Paula, we will come back!

“Discovering Mt. Dora”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014

Our first visit to Mt. Dora, and what a pleasant way to spend your day strolling along this warm beautiful small town, with nice and friendly people, and colorful wooden houses, old railway track, and Marina. It was a perfect stop on our way to Clearwater.

Mount Dora is a special little piece of paradise we are proud to call home. Mount Dora was just voted by Smithsonian to be one of the top 20 small towns in the country. A well deserved honor...We have a funny suspicion more and more people are discovering our hidden treasure.

I have been do Mount dora many times and would not have known about alll the little places and history if not for the GREAT tour Jet and Paula put together.
A MUST DO when you visit Mount Dora!
Well worth the money, you couldn't get dinner at just one place in town for the same price.
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

“Taste of Our Town was the highlight of our Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

I have been visiting Mount Dora for my entire life and was hesitant to book a "tourist" tour. However - I'm SO glad we did! Taste of Our Town Mount Dora with Paula and John was so great. We were lucky to have joined a trip of 8 ladies on a reunion - Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Cousins. They were so much fun to be with; Paula and John did a fantastic job of making the trip special for all of us. I think John and my husband Steve had a pretty good time with their haram of ladies. We stopped at many places with quite a lot of cocktail and food tastings. A very good value and more important, a ton of fun! Paula and John offered a good mix of history, little stories and individual attention. Everywhere we went for the entire weekend was filled with really friendly and wonderful people. I can't give this a high enough rating. We can't wait to go back to Mount Dora.

Thank you so much for the raving review. We always say our guests make what we do so easy and so much fun. We are passionate about our town so sharing the beauty, culture, and history is also easy. I too am not a "tour" taker so am glad you found ours to not be the typical. We hope to see you again!

“Fun afternoon with Friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Relaxed, informative tasting and tour of Mt Dora by Paula and John, who are very well versed about their town. Personal experiences and recommendations were provided with humor and sincerity, along with true passion for the love of their town. They truly show this is a labor of love. Our only suggestion would be identify any special needs (vegetarian, celiac, etc) requests during advanced ticket purchase.
