Doo's Amazing Tours Offers a New View on City Tours

By Kelly Church

Why tour the city of St. Petersburg, FL on foot when you can do it on a pair of your own wheels or by water? Doo's Amazing Tours is a mobile tour company, granting people the ability to visit a new city while veering from the traditional mode of transportation, . The company has won several local business awards, including the Best of St. Petersburg Award for Sightseeing and Tours.

"St. Petersburg is such an historically rich city that has some of the most beautiful preserves and beaches in all of the world," Scopacasa says. "We offer a variety of tours from Historical Segway Tours, Mangrove Kayaking Tours, River Tours, Nature Preserve Bike Tours and Paddle Board Tours."

By taking a tour through Doo's Amazing Tours, visitors of St. Petersburg can see ancient burial mounds dating all the way back to 700 A.D., multiple ecosystems, wildlife and city architecture. Each tour is also rich in history, giving those on the tour the background of the city, all the important information of its founding and quirky stories you couldn't hear from anyone but a local.

Segway tours come with three options, depending on the duration of time the guest wants to spend on the segway and how far they want to travel. Tours on segways range from five miles to 12 miles and span the city's most natural and beautiful scenes. Bike tours take guests through the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, an "oasis" in the heart of the state's most densely populated county.

This tour is the best way to see all types of ecosystems and wildlife. Kayak tours are the shorter, sweeter version of an all-day tour. These two-hour trips are on the waters of Weedon Island and guests get to float by ancient burial mounds and through hidden mangrove tunnels. Paddleboards are another option, going through Coffee Pot Bayou, the number one spot for learning to paddle board while enjoying the company of the natural sea life.

Another option through Doo's Amazing Tours is the Natural Spring River Tour. Patrons experience a natural spring "so deep that the bottom has never been found." Travelling on a kayak or a paddleboard, tourists will spend four to five hours floating down a natural lazy river over crystal-clear waters.

"It's definitely a must do when you're visiting the area," Scopacasa says. "On the tour you will get to experience fresh crystal blue water that year round is a comfortable 74 degrees. Of course, one of the highlights of the tours are the manatees which swim up the river daily. This tour is a perfect way to see a little bit of 'old Florida' designed for all ages."

To experience a day with Doo's Amazing Tours, call to reserve your spot. For groups larger than six people, the company offers bundling packages. Gather your best group of friends and start touring the historic city of St. Petersburg on anything but your feet.
