Jan was absolutely phenomenal. She presented the information in a professional and historical manner making it informative and enjoyable. I thought that it was going to be really hokey, but it was a great time. Interesting city, but Jan made this tour.

Jan was exceptional! She made it fun, personal and exciting! She kept our 14, 11 and 2 year old enthralled and intrigued. She is a great historian and certainly knows her stuff. Jan made us want to learn more and was very easy to talk to, knowledgeable and all around the best!
