Our school class took a tour of the Falls and the history of the old mills that were used years ago. The children were engaged and we learned things about Greenville we didn't know! Definitely worth the money!

John was very well versed in Greenville history and had photos to share of the stops along the way to compare and contrast the Greenville of today with the Greenville of yesterday. He was very good with the girls who are ages 7-8 and they were very much engaged in what he had to say. Adults found it very interesting... More

I hired John to take a small group of us on a walking tour before a weekend conference we were attending. I knew we would never get outside during the conference so we scheduled to meet John the morning before. What an amazing city. And what an amazing tour guide we had. John showed us photos of Greenville's past and... More

A group of us went together for the West End Walking Tour. The guide was flexible with our group and shared a lot of knowledge in a down-to-earth way. We had a great time and learned a lot!

Whether you have lived in Greenville for many years or are a newcomer of sorts, the Greenville History Tour - West End is a delightful way to spend an hour in a transofrmed downtown. Mr. Nolan's style of communicating historical facts keeps the listener totally in tune every step of the way. The walk is not strenous and is dotted... More

I've lived in Greenville for some years and have heard a lot of history, but this hour-long walking tour of the West End was well worth doing. I learned lots of Greenvile trivia I hadn't heard before, found the guide pleasant and knowledgeable, and generally had a good time. A nice tour for anyone looking to learn a little Greenville...

I took my 3 children on the West End history tour ranging in age from 9-12 years old. John was great at explaining everything to them in a way that they could understand and enjoy. And as an adult, it was interesting to me as well! All of us had a great time and are excited to take their dad... More

John's knowledge of Greenville and love for food flow throw the entire tour. Whether you're a foodie or a history buff (or both) this tour won't disappoint!
