Best Tour Ever!!!!

David, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us many interesting and fascinating stories about the Sacred Lands site where he grew up. He is also a horticulturist and knew everything about the flora. Peacocks, peahens and chicks were in abundance. This tour was the highlight of my vacation and I will do it again on my next trip to Treasure Island. I am recommending this to all my friends who visit here. This is a “not miss” tour if you are in Tampa/St. Pete.

Local history brought to life through story and stewardship

Our family (couple plus three kids 9,9,7) gained so much from this tour. David, the exclusive guide, shares his family's private historical oasis with you through storytelling and conversation as well as traditional tour facts and information. The life and times of the Tocobago people, with the opportunity to stand on a shell mound and handle shell tools and pottery from the mound, the fascinating journey of Pánfilo de Narváez, the stewardship of David's family property with it's historic brick driveway and ostentation of peacocks as well as the early development of the area with the mystery of Treasure Island, John's Pass and more. After walking the property and taking story breaks at various spots, standing and sitting, we also had time to look at artifacts and books inside where a $1 donation allowed for a can of soda or water bottle. Thank you!

Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable and professional. The grounds are historical and are preserved by his family. We received a wonderful, concise history lesson about the area. David kept our interest with the many historical events that shaped the land his family owns and surrounding areas. The peacocks and peahens were in abundance and not shy. Our friends had recommended the tour and we are recommending to more friends. You will not be disappointed!

The beautiful peacocks were amazing. So many just wandering around and playing. But knowing that a local family is making an effort to maintain this wonderful historical site was fantastic. The little history tour made us want to learn more.
