I thoroughly enjoyed Reverend Paul’s presentation about Harriet Tubman. He uses gestures and voices while speaking and is a gifted story teller. It was impossible to look away. He is also a funny guy. I have read about Harriet but still learned some new things.

I visited with my children aged 9, 11 and 14. They all said it was the highlight of our trip! The tour guide was exceptional. Christine conveyed information to us in a way that was accessible and engaging. Definitely worth the visit.

I don’t remember exactly (and they may vary by season), so I recommend searching on nps.gov (National Park Service) for that info. Enjoy!
