Come join us and enjoy the beautiful Riverside Avondale area of Jacksonville on this engaging tour.

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.

What a fun afternoon we had on the Riverside Avondale Preservation Tour! We were looking for something fun to do on Black Friday and decided to give the Tuk Tuk a try. 2 members of our party live in Avondale and thought we knew just about all there was to know about our neighborhood. We quickly realized how much there was to learn. Toni was an amazing and fun tour guide. She knew so much about the architecture and history of the area and seemed genuinely excited to share it with us. We highly recommend this tour to newcomers and lifelong residents alike.

We had so much fun with Toni, our tour guide, putt-ing through the most architecturally fascinating neighborhoods. Toni is very knowledgeable and was able to customize the tour when she understood, by talking with us as we putt-ed along, what historical and architectural tidbits we found of particular interest. It takes a very skilled and knowledgeable guide to be able to do that and it certainly made the tour FABULOUS for us! I have no idea what details she might have left out nor what she added. All I know is that around every corner and at every stop informative interesting things fell out of Toni’s mouth and into my ears. And, she waited for us to ask more questions, to which she mostly had the answers and told us when she didn’t, before moving on to the next place to see.
Go Tuk’n! You won’t regret it!
