Great tour. Irene was everything you want in a tour guide - smart, curious, flexible, personable. She brought the history of the city to life in a memorable way and we learned a ton.
Anne is a brilliant guide. Extremely knowledgeable, articulate, geared the tour to our two young grandchildren who remained engaged throughout.
David was able to anticipate the kinds of things we were interested in and spoke at our level. He was also able to accommodate our mobility issues.
