Fun, interesting, but overpriced for an hour and a half — much of it just sitting at a cafe talking.
Georgia was so fantastic, beyond expectations . The whole family was totally absorbed by the subject. The information was delivered in a very accessible way. We felt that we all have learned a lot during the visit.
My tour with Georgia was like an excellent college seminar - a true 2-way intellectual experience. She did a great job employing the Socratic method while discussing Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The venue for this tour is in a residential neighborhood, not downtown. As a result, there are few taxis circulating nearby when the tour ends. Might be a good idea when sending confirmation and meeting instructions to customers to let them know in advance that Uber doesn’t operate here, so they should book a pick up taxi in advance.
