    This was a fun and informative tour with our guide (Andrew) offering a vast amount of knowledge on how these communities were formed, as well as how historic events helped shape them into what they are today. He showed us several points of interest and simply had an upbeat and fun personality, which only added to the experience.

    Our guide was great! (Still trying to find his name. He was around 30-35 y/o, He grew up in the area, he’s part Italian, also part Cuban I think). He was extremely knowledgeable about history of the area, beginning from the initial settlers, various changes over time, ongoing through modern day events. He provided excellent visuals that showed the changes over time. Information about architecture was fascinating. Very informative about cultural issues, including food. He also treated everyone to Asian Dumplings that were fantastic. Highly recommend taking this tour!
