I took my mother and son on this tour. Mom has lived in Pensacola for over sixty years and learned so much from the tour. They were able to meet her mobility needs with a lift into the bus, what a plus!! Their business location is in a historical house and filled with fun things to learn, plus a bathroom... More

My husband and I booked the Ghosts and Graveyards Tour after our scheduled food tour was cancelled. We've done other ghost tours in the past and thought it would be interesting. It was a driving tour. We thought our driver would be telling the stories, but all information was shared via video on monitors at our seats. The driver pointed... More

Our group tour was arranged at the very last moment. Not only did this business accommodate us but gave us one of the best city tours anyone in our group has ever experienced. The bus drove us around the city in sequence with the video presentation. Our driver easily answered questions. Wish we were staying longer to take advantage of... More

The North Hills Historic homes tour was really great. Got to go inside I house. Saw many homes and heard the history. Very interesting history. Would do again. Good price.

Went on the fabulous walking tour of Palafox eateries Aug and i must say wish i had worn my overalls instead of casual dress. The samples were delicious and glad we were able to walk off some of our samplings before the next place. Our guide Hunter was very knowledgeable and made for an excellent tour guide buy telling and... More

My wife and I travel often. When we are in a new city, we go on city tours. It lets us see the whole city, then we decide where we want to go back and spend more time. This time we were in Pensacola Florida and tried Retro to Go. Retro to Go was unique. Leroy our bus driver was... More

Leroy was a fabulous tour guide! Very friendly and informative, with a great sense of humor. I wish our stay was longer because we would take another tour with him in a heartbeat (We give him 5+ stars)! We toured the Red Light District. Very interesting tour about a taboo subject in our society. The only thing that would have... More

I concur. LeeRoy is great, and it is sad that so many former brothels have been eliminated due to progress. Back in the early 1970s when they were forming ideas about what to preserve in a downtown historic district, recreating a brothel was seriously discussed because the business shaped Pensacola for decades. At least, with the technology with Go Retro,... More

Wesley and Leeroy provided exceptional service to 42 seniors. Most have lived in the Gulf Coast area for a long time, and Go Retro! was able to show them things they didn't know existed. They were able to help me successfully accomplish my 3 goals when I find activities for my seniors - Educated, Inform and Entertain! Thank you Gentlemen... More

Our group of five had such a fun-filled trip on our groovy bus! The driver was courteous, answered questions and was patient if we wanted to look at something longer, even driving around the block again so that we could get a picture. I would highly recommend this retro bus tour - we took the landmark tour but there are... More

While the price was very good and all of the sites are shown there was little mention of the fact that Pensacola is one of the oldest cities in the USA. Also since it is a reasonably small city there are only so many sites to see. Good tour guide and each seat has a TV monitor to help with... More

Correct--the Landmarks Tour is full of many sites; so many, that the 15' tall DeLuna statue and its significance of honoring the first 1559 colonists got overlooked inadvertently by this passenger. More
