Thanks to Annette for a very informative tour. Enjoyed the stop and quick garden tour. Our only problem was that the instructions on where to meet the van were not clear. They said walk "down" the street but did not say which direction. Luckily we found the van.

Very knowledgeable guide who was well versed in the area and local history and lore. Fun, interesting and lively tour. Loved all the “insider” stories. The Mercedes coach was clean and the guide prompt in picking us up. I highly recommend this tour company.

You need another option for the optional question below that reads “Who did you go with”? I went with 5 other family members (party of 6), but all are adults.

Great tour, lot of fun. Bonnie the tour guide was great. Strongly recommend.

Tour guide was great’. Will book it again next time friends come to town
