Where to begin… First of all, Allen and Michael (my guides for both evenings) could not have been more accommodating. Not only did they book my hotel (at a substantial discount), but they picked me up both nights (Jonesborough and Johnson City tours). Both gentlemen tell a good tale, although very differently in style. Michael seems to focus on more of the history (which, as a history buff really interests me) and Allen is effusive and really weaves the mystery of the unknown into his stories. Both make you feel like you’re a special group, as if you’re privy to stories no one else has heard. The tours are long, but in a good way. You’re not rushed along and it really gives you a chance to look around and peek in windows (of downtown buildings… Just to be clear, we weren’t a group of peeping Toms :-) Both Allen and Michael are just delightful people, and their spirit (no pun intended) is contagious. I had a really good time on both tours.
