We thoroughly enjoyed our Gilded Age tour, which, even though many buildings have been torn down, still features several that convey the splendor of that special time for America's very wealthy. Michele was well-informed and conducted the tour at just the right pace for the three of us. Thank you, Michele!
As usual our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting.
Michele was personable, knew her subject and had lots of good anecdotes. The subject was engaging. The weather was delightful.
