Tom our guide was excellent. Very welcoming and knowledgeable. Took our time with the tour and there was lots of places to sit down as we stopped at each location. I’ve been on a few of these walks and this was definitely one of the best. Simple, easy, educational and fun. He had a folder with photos to show us as we walked around which were relevant and helped explain a lot. Highly recommended if in the area.

As a first-time visitor to the city, the tour provided a great introduction. The vehicle was comfortable and our guide, Preston, was top-notch.
