Start to finish a walk (OK, ride) on the wild side of Cumberland Island--the only side that's left and well worth the price. Our van seated 12 comfortably and was cool enough on a sweltering June day, but be prepared for a bumpy ride. Our...More

We had Mike as our guide. While waiting on the ferry back, in the rain, I chatted with his cohort Juane, and she was a neat lady. So I think either guide would be good. He was great! Lots of great history about the island....More

I admit I was nervous - all the talk on the website about bumpy ride, ticks, bathrooms few and far between. These things are not nearly as frightening as they sound. For our trip, things did not look great in terms of weather (hot, humid...More

Can you go for only part of the tour I do have a bad neck I'm thinking I mainly want to see the horses so is this for me ?

There are no paved roads on Cumberland. It is all packed sand. The tour is bumpy on the northern end of the island due to tree roots. You do have to do the whole tour once onboard. If your primary goal is to see the horses... More
