What a lovely tour of such historical homes in the historical district of the city. The tour was easy to follow and the homes were well worth the price of the tour.

It was informative and kept a good pace. Walking shoes are preferable. The tour guide, Joyce was very knowledgeable and many people in the community knew her which promoted the small town charm.

Our 3-hour tour with Joyce provided great insight and understanding of Danville's Tobacco Warehouse District, Millionaire's Row, and Holbrook-Ross neighborhood. Joyce is incredibly energetic and knowledgable - it was a great learning experience for me.

A thoroughly enjoyable, informative walking tour. We were lucky enough to tour two houses and the owners couldn't have been more gracious. The tour leader was a pure joy. Highly recommended.

I brought a group of walkers from Patrick County to do the Millionaire's Row tour, and they were all so favorably impressed that I hope we can return to enjoy the River District (aka Warehouse district) with the same guide.
