The day of our tour was just like a summer day in Indiana, 100 F and 100% humidity, but with Brian as our guide we didn't notice. He shared a wealth of information with a touch of humor, so I barely noticed the weather. It helped that he ensured our stops were in the shade.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour today. Vickie, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and brought the history to life. She was very thoughtful about the needs of her group and answered all questions with considerable ease. Would thoroughly recommend.

Great tour with our guide Julie. Very knowledgeable. Patient with all of our questions. Very concerned with our comfort. Added a bonus trip along the waterfront since no cruise ships were docked.
