My wife and I are huge Arts & Crafts aficionados, and have never been to Pasadena. I called Kristin on a whim just before we left from Baltimore. She answered after the first ring and set up a tour of the Gamble House neighborhood (inappropriately named "Little Switzerland"). Her tour was pretty much the first thing we did after we... More

My family spent a great morning exploring Pasadena with Kristin, who was exceptionally warm and knowledgeable. She covered history, architecture, nature, sports and Pasadena's ties to TV and the movies. She found something to connect on with everyone in my family, from the Gamble House (for which she is a docent) for my craftsman-loving husband and a visit to the... More

When I first moved to Pasadena I took a tour with this company and ever since I have been recommending them to my friends who visit the area, Kristin was our guide and she was very informative and a local expert on Pasadena's history and stories, we wish her the best with her business, we're sure she will go far!

As a group of 5 ladies, we spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon with Kristin. She gave a wonderful, interesting, informative and fun tour. She met us promptly at the designated time and location. She transported us in her very clean and comfortable vehicle. We were shown the beautiful and interesting architecture, given history and back stories of the area. Kristin... More

I thought I knew Pasadena as I have lived here for over 34 years and have been actively involved in organizatons, commissions and non-profits dedicated to the history, traditions and historic preservation of our wonderful City. Was I ever mistaken. An afternoon with Kristin at the wheel, navigating and demonstrating her vast knowledge was a total eye opener. This is... More

Look no further. You can't beat this. Book a tour with PTC. Kristin gives exceptional tours. She is knowledgeable, quick, fun, and real. She has a wealth of information and stories that will bring Pasadena to life. Her tours are informative, insightful and warm. You will see Pasadena in a way that you will enjoy and remember. Just do it!

After three-weeks of leaving over six message looking for availability to serve a private party, I give up. Obviously, Kristen sees this more as a hobby than a business (not only are calls not returned, there is no email on their web site!). Too bad there is not more competition for Pasdena tours. Looks like there is so much demand... More

Go out of your way to experience the Pasadena Tour Company's outstanding "total immersion experience" into the artistic treasure trove of craftsman (and other style) homes that grace Pasadena. The PTC owner Kristin personally conducts these tours in a very comfortable 15 passenger minibus with large windows. For several years, she has personally researched county records and old newspaper articles... More

You know the group tours, the ones that are boring, boring, boring! This one is NOT BORING! This is the best tour we have been on because Kristin loves her job. Yes, you can tell she does because she is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and makes the whole tour really enjoyable. The van is so comfortable with large windows so you can... More
