My husband and I were very impressed with the Tour. The guide knew we had the Grandchildren, and she brought an activity that all three kids loved- an architectural feature treasure-hunt! We all had a great time!

She covered the area, answered all our questions and even helped us after the tour with recommendations on where to eat and do a little antique shopping. Tour started on time, was informative and fun. And got the unexpected chance to see the interior of one of the privately owned mansions. Highly... More
