The tour covers some of the places that I never expected to be mentioned in a tour like this. I expected the same old grand locations, and, sure, there is the occasional usual haunt mentioned, but I was surprised how many other places in the same area are truly fascinating and have really good stories. Trust me, for a history buff, this tour is PURE GOLD! I really enjoyed this tour.
