The tour was fantastic....Brian and Scott were fantastic

Reviewed by: Leonard W, June 2014

We loved the tour and the information the guide gave was incredible. The one complaint we have is that the van did not have large enough windows to see the sites. Anyone sitting on an inside seat, or in the middle of the last row could not see the buildings that were being pointed out.
