Would totally take this tour again!!!

Great tour, great value, great time!

Our guide Nita was very knowledgeable and quite a personality--she knew the area very well and understood how to play to her crowd. We really enjoyed the cemetery portion and the old homes--even though it was quite hot, a good time was had by all!...More
