This is a very engaging and knowledgeable tour where you can see majority of attractions first hand. We embarked at the Union square where we met Joseph, our tour guide. He was a native of the city and was extremely well versed in the history and facts that he explained to us.

We had a great time on our tour with Curt and John. Curt was so personable and made sure we all had time to take pictures at our stops as John drove us safely through the city. This tour was a great on our first day to learn about the city, totally worth the money!!
