We lucked out and got the best weather, the best guide and the best day on Cumberland. Many visits over the last 36 years have seen positive changes but the island remains the same. Rest rooms with water, a small museum, chairs, marked paths, boardwalks over dunes add value but the addition of this tour has made the north end... More

You must tour this island; with Mike if possible.:) On this tour you will find so much natural, undisturbed beauty(wild horses are everywhere), as well as such interesting history starting with native Americans progressing thru French, Spanish, English, and eventually American possession.

It turns out that Cumberland Island has a rich history starting at least from the early 1800's. I found out the island's fascinating story from Mike, our tour guide. Mike was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to tell the multi-layered history in a way that was easy to digest. He was one of the best docents I have experienced in... More

My wife and I recently booked the Lands and Legacies tour. It was well worth it! I have been on multiple day trips to Cumberland Island over the years and I was never able to see as much of the island on those visits as we saw in one day on this tour. Our tour guide Mike had a wealth... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking the Land and Legacies tour recently. Mike, our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge and told the story of beautiful Cumberland Island in detail. Although the ride was super bumpy, we hardly noticed at all because of all the interesting info he shared as we drove from each historical sight... More

Excellent tour of the most amazing, breathtaking barrier island off the Georgia coast. Our tour guide, Mike, shared a wealth of knowledge. The wild horses were amazing and plentiful alongside the armadillo, wild turkey and other wildlife. There were too many highlights to recapture. It was an absolute wonderful tour.

Spectacular tour of Cumberland Island and our guide, Mike was fantastic! Great historical overview of this beautiful property, with Mike adding a lot of local color. Our trip was inspired by a book we read about the island and our tour brought everything together.

I'd read the TA reviews of this tour and was pretty confident it'd be what I expected. Well, that was true for sure. I was on the 11/11/16 tour with Captain Mike. On this day the company operated 2 vans which held 12 pax each and was sold out. The total cost of the ferry and tour is about $80... More

I was able to see most of the island on the tour. Otherwise I would have seen a small portion on foot. The tour guide Mike was so knowledgeable and really made the tour fabulous.
