The 1981 film “Honky Tonk Freeway” was filmed in Mount Dora, and many Mount Dora buildings were temporarily painted pink for the film’s set. Mount Dora is famous locally for its antique shops and cafes. The Dora Canal and its local nature  along the lakes was featured on the PBS show “Central Florida Road Trip, Tavares Edition”.

    "Pontoon and Shopping - Fun Afternoon"
    Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. The boat tour was nice, didn't know that this was an option until we found Original Orlando Tours. Mount Dora is a historically beautiful city.

    "Mount Dora Boat Tour"
    This was a welcome change from the theme parks. Our driver picked us up on time and was very informative about the surrounding area and the time we would be spending in Mount Dora. Really comfortable boat ride and saw lots of gators and animals, even an eagle.

    "Had a blast!!"
    This was so nice! We had a nice comfortable ride from our hotel out to Mount Dora, were able to get on the boat and get our boat tour started right away, saw plenty of beautiful animals and just enjoyed the breeze over the water in general. When we got back to Mount Dora I wasn't sure how we would spend our time at first but our tour guide really knew what he was talking about and gave us some ideas and suggestions which led to us experiencing some local tastes and doing some shopping for authentic souvenirs not just some mickey mouse hats, all in all this was a blast and I can't wait to come back and see what else this tour company has to offer!! Take advantage of the refreshments because it can get pretty hot out!

    "Fantastic Visit "
    The pontoon boat ride was very cool, the captain knew all about the wildlife and we were able to have refreshments aboard! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was full of all sorts of fun facts and made the trip that much better for it. My son really enjoyed the local museum and I found the local history to be fascinating, would definitely do again this trip again.

    "Golden Triangle was a Golden Experience "
    The pick up and drop off were so painless and quick at all points during this trip which is a huge deal for me. Our tour guide was extremely informative about Florida and the areas that we were driving through on the way to Mount Dora. We saw several alligators and a bunch of birds so I count ourselves to have gotten lucky since you never know what'll happen when you're looking for nature. Relaxing and strolling around Mount Dora was great, we were able to get some snacks from a local cafe which had some amazing coffee drinks (my wife doesn't like coffee but she tried mine and then wouldn't give it back I swear) and take some fresh baked goods back to the hotel for a feeling of home if we were tired of the tourist trap stuff, this was perfect and I wouldn't have changed a thing!

    "Go to Bavarian Haus!"
    I would for sure recommend this trip, tons of things to see and do and the alligators come right up to the boat on the tour! If you're a fan of authentic German food, or if you've never tried it, or if you have and weren't a fan, you have to go to the Bavarian Haus and try the strudel, top tier recommendation from our tour guide!

    "Private pick up was worth it "
    Getting picked up at the hotel made this such a conveinient experiece for my wife and I, getting two kids to sit quiet while we try and get an uber to a tour pick up spot has been a nightmare in the past, this way they were able to go right from our hotel room to the action and get straight into the sightseeing without losing their minds and making us lose ours. Transportation made this tour worth it completely.
