Lonnie was entertaining, so personable, informative, thoroughly engaging, humorous, historic, a must do!!! Worth every modest penny and then some. He turned our international group into instant family. He even has the keys to Cuba, for real.

We like to take walking tours of many of the places we visit. While in the Tampa/St. Pete area we booked this tour. We think that this may have been the best one we have taken. For $20 it was worth it.

We didn't use the trolley system, we parked in a nearby garage and walked to the statue to meet our tour guide. Wish I could help you with this but I can't.
