Downtown History Tour at the Luminary Hotel

Quick Details

Inclusions: Souvenir cardboard fan, night tour


Fort Myers’ historic downtown area was once the site of a Seminole and then a Civil War fort!

From fort to dusty cattle town to the building boom of the Roaring Twenties, from depression to post-WWII prosperity to urban decay, and ultimately to its modern incarnation as one of the most beautiful historic districts in Florida, Fort Myers is a town rich in history, architecture, art and amenities.

On this 90-minute tour, you will learn your way around not only this charming town, but also around the intrigues and rivalries of the men who built it. It’s a fascinating journey.

Have you heard about the True Tours Fan Club? Each tour with us includes a souvenir cardboard fan that’s your ticket to discounts on your purchase of services or merchandise at local establishments. Show the fan, get a discount. It’s that easy.


Our fans will help keep you cool in the Florida sunshine, but you may want to bring along a bottle of water, also. In hot weather, hats and sunscreen will help keep you comfortable along this easy stroll with plenty of shady benches along the way.
