All of it and our fabulous tour guide! The coach was very clean and most comfortable. Enjoyed having the screen inside coach with prompts to further punctuate Mr. Odom’s information. This was a birthday present and Mr. Odom made it a very special day with his dynamic tour.

My boyfriend and I were able to do this tour while we were in town for Memorial Day. It was our first time to Pensacola so we decided this would be a great way to learn about the area. The day of the tour we ended up being the only customers and we had a GREAT time. So thankful

Our tour involved a pre-recorded narration that did not sync with our tour. Although the driver stopped and started the recording, it was hard to determine where exactly we were. In some cases the driver had to pull over and wait for the recording to catch up or had to point

Thanks for your feedback. Usually the driver is able to sync everything with the route, but at times construction and traffic impede that.

I have never been on a tour where the operator did not speak. The whole tour was from a video that played in the bus. The video was not in-sync with the various "landmarks". The highlight was a stop at the visitors center. We did not ride in a "retro vehicle", we rode in

In the state of Florida, the driver is not allowed to drive and talk at the same time. This is for passengers' safety. Clearly, you did not read the website, which describes what the company does and that the Retro vehicle isn't always available. The driver had to use the larger vehicle because there were so many passengers. Downtown streets can be very tight--sorry the driver hit a curb or two and was not as proficient in his timing; he's new. Most people are amazed about the Pensacola Christian School story--a day school that morphed into a multi-million dollar business. (All you saw was the parking lot, and you did not see or listen to the commentary.) If Go Retro were located where Jeff Bezos had begun Amazon out of his garage, I would want to drive by that. Go Retro could show a photo of what it looked like when he began it, and then you could see what it looks like today. I'm sorry Go Retro couldn't live up to your high expectations.
