If you should reserve a spot and take the guided tour of "Millionaires' Row" along Main Street in Danville, you'll finish it thinking "wow--who knew there were so many very cool old churches and homes to see in Danville?" Joyce Wilburn, our tour guide, was personable and spirited and full of information. With her as guide and escort, you have... More

You can tell Joyce Wilburn loves Danville all right! What a fun tour this turned out to be, I highly recommend it for all (not for young children though...). Great way to introduce you to Danville, it will make you want to discover the city. History, architecture, it's all there for you. Most houses are still in good to great... More

I made an appointment with Joyce Wilburn to bring a group to Danville for the guided walking tour. She provided helpful information about other things to do while we were in Danville, and even booked a reservation for us to have lunch in a delightful restaurant. The tour was enjoyable and fascinating. We were pleasantly surprised when we were allowed... More

Joyce was a wealth of information and related many stories about the homes and their former owners. We were able to go inside the beautiful W. F. Patton House and learn from the owners about the...

Three of us spent a delightful afternoon with Joyce Wilburn on "The Secrets Inside" tour of Main Street 's "Millionaires Row". She shares many facts about Danville past and present. We were very fortunate to tour the first floor of Patton House experiencing the interesting restoration done by Paul & Marjory Liepe. I highly recommend this informative and reasonably priced...

The tour is VERY affordable and not strenuous for less mobile folks. We can't wait to visit with friends and family and see... More

Joyce Wilburn was our tour guide on this fantastic walking tour of the most beautiful homes in Danville. Don't miss this 90 minute trip back in time! Joyce makes the tour like walking along the street with a friend. She shares the secrets and backstories of old Danville. The tour was a great introduction to Danville and should be on... More

I've taken many walking tours over the years as that’s one of the first things I like to do when traveling to new places but this walking tour of Millionaires Row in Danville's historic district is one of the best. Our guide made it fun as well as informative as she pointed out the many architectural features of these very... More

A great way to explore this wonderful city and actually see the wonderful details the downtown buildings have to offer. Very well led and narrated by Joyce Wilburn and one I have taken over and over again with my out of town or international friends. I can highly recommend taking it!!

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!
