Wonderful tour!!! Our guide, Will, was the best! He knew about everything and was accommodating to all our needs and wants (he actually turned the vehicle around at one point so some of the passengers could get a picture of the elk we just passed ). The sights were gorgeous and we learned a lot of history along the way. I highly recommend this tour ~ it was well worth the money spent!!!

I was thinking about canceling this due to the price and I am so glad I did not. Clementine was so knowledgeable and took us places we would have never known to do on our own. The tour was worth every penny and I highly recommend.

It was a great day! Brian was a wonderful tour guide. Great value and worth every penny! Can’t wait to come back and use this company again.

Our host was entertaining and knowledgeable of history and the paranormal activity with video evidence at some of the tour landmarks.

What a great value for your money!! This was such a unique and fun experience! We had the best time on this tour.
