My name is Mandy and I am a third generation resident of this area. In 2017 I started giving tours as a fundraiser to support my local Main Street District. Locals and out of town guests alike have found these tours to be both fun and informative. When I travel outside of Florida, I enjoy taking tours with a local of the area to learn all the history and stories of the town instead of doing the traditional "touristy" things - so I decided to bring that idea home, to the Orlando area. Now I offer a variety tours covering many locations and interests.

My co-host is Alex. Alex was born in Orlando and has a dozen years of professional cooking experience with a degree in history from Appalachian State University. A collector of stories and flavors, Alex is a natural fit as a tour guide to reveal Orlando’s background and best bites.

Mandy’s tour was so enjoyable! Her love and pride for her city and her passion for knowing its historical beginnings is impressive. But what makes it so enjoyable and interesting is how Mandy makes you feel like you’re with a group of your best friends on a beautiful day just hanging out.
