How fun was this. We were happy to get the information we did on our tour. Gigi was very informative of Eureka Springs history and answered all questions asked. This tour was very fun.

Our tour guide Barry was a wonderful storyteller. We enjoyed walking the streets and learning about the town’s beginnings and past. The underground bit was short and sweet. It was a pleasant was to take in the town from a historical point of view.

The guide did such a nice job with the history. He was very easy to listen to, interactive, knowledgeable and relaxed. I just feel bad that I can't remember if his name was Larry or Barry.
