Riverside Avondale Tour

Each tour supports and gives back to the Riverside Avondale Preservation to help contribute to the ongoing preservation efforts in the area. Come join us and enjoy the beautiful Riverside Avondale area of Jacksonville on this engaging tour. Learn about the architecture and history that make this area one of the most unique in Jacksonville. Discover the hidden gems that you’ll want to tell your friends about again and again. Love southern rock? Well, you are in for a treat for that as well. To top it off, you’ll be riding in our luxury, eco-friendly, Tuk Tuks. This is a tour you don’t want to miss.

Our Maxwell House Coffee factory is one of its last remaining manufacturing plants in the country. Although it was not founded here, it is a very important component of our history. The original family, the Cheeks, still occupy a home in the Riverside community and is a wonderful component of this tour. There are many different styles throughout the communities you will visit and multiple parks that are some of our city’s hidden gems. Southern Rock grew out of this area and you’ll get to see the garage where several of them got their start. This three-hour tour covers many miles but you won’t have to do a thing. Just sit back and enjoy your time learning about these wonderful areas of our city, while riding in our luxury tuk tuks.

If you’re interested in diving deeper into Jax’s rich history, the Downtown Jacksonville City Tour will take you back in time.

We had such an enjoyable afternoon with our guide, Toni, Going Tuk’n all over the Historic downtown areas of Riverside and Avondale. Toni was such a warm and engaging guide, as well as very knowledgeable about Jacksonville. She provided us with lots of history about the area. If you are visiting Jacksonville, this is definitely an area to see, and Tuk’n is the way to go! You will learn so much and have so much fun! Thank you, Toni! Our tour with you was a highlight of our time spent in Jacksonville!

The tuk tuk experience comes to the US with an exciting twist and the safety customers expect from a fun vehicle like this one. Just an amazing experience and our drive / guide Debbie was endearing. One of the most memorable and wonderful times we have ever had.


Such an awesome experience! Our driver was so fun and made sure we were all comfy for the ride. The seats were heated and blankets were provided so that we all stayed cozy and warm. If you are looking for a fun way to tour the area then this is definitely the way to go!
