I was a first time visitor to St. Louis, and I booked the 6 hour private tour for my first day in the city so I could get my bearings. I requested Art & Architecture, and expressed an interest in history. The tour Barbara planned and delivered was above and beyond my expectations. She picked me up promptly; her green vehicle has big windows and is clean and comfortable for a long day of driving; she is a safe and efficient driver. All the things you expect. What made the day amazing was the care taken to ensure I saw as much of the city in the most memorable way- an historical timeline. Each experience built upon the next, so that I got a feeling for the city that I never would have had if I relied solely upon “best things to do” lists on the internet. As we moved through the neighborhoods, I marveled at how she set this up... Frontier, Revolutionary War, Industrial Revolution, Missouri Compromise, Civil War, Gilded Age, culminating in Forest Park and the 1904 World’s Fair. All the places I wanted to see we stopped at (the Basilica is heartbreakingly beautiful) and she made excellent suggestions for attractions that I might enjoy for the rest of my trip. All this while expertly navigating the city and answering my questions with grace and humor. How she fit so much in is astonishing. I would tour with Show Me MO again, and wholeheartedly recommend the service.

My daughter and I were in St. Louis for a dance convention and we only had a short time available for a general tour of the city. Barbara took us to the highlights of the city. She was a delightful guide. It made us want to return to St. Louis to visit the many sites and places that we saw and we'll definitely call Barbara when we return.

I wanted to visit several Civil War sites in St. Louis but was afraid I would not be able to see most of them because they are quite distant from each other and taking public transport may take up too much time unless I take a taxi. Miracle of miracles, I found ShowMeMo tours. Although Barbara did have an itinerary listed in her website, she was very flexible and accommodating and knowledgeable. She even patiently waited for me while I was inside the Missouri Civil War Museum. And yes, I got to visit all the sites I wanted to see. It is super easy to book and contact her (she replies quickly). She did pick me up from my hotel and dropped me off too. She also has other tours which I intend to avail myself of when I go back to St Louis. Just check out her website (just do a google search for Show Me MO Tours.).

Barbara took my son and I on a four hour driving tour of the Civil War history sites in St. Louis. We made stops at the old courthouse, Jefferson Barracks and Ulysses Grant family home at Grants Farm. There also was scheduled stops at at burial grounds of the soldiers but choose not to stop due to the rain. Barbara was very knowledgeable and helpful on Civil War information. She also showed us homes of Civil War generals. Would recommend this tour very highly.

My wife and I, out of town visitors, took a half day general purpose tour of St Louis with Show Me MO Tours. Booking was very easy. Barbara Gokenbach picked us up in her large and comfortable Ford Excursion (running on waste vegetable oil from restaurants) at our hotel right on time (she was early). In a little over 4 hours she drove us all over downtown St Louis and the interesting neighborhoods around it. We learned a ton of stuff about St Louis past and present. Barbara got us out twice to see particular sights, which were also welcome bathroom breaks. Barbara is massively informed about St Louis, and a very pleasant person to spend time with. When she didn't know an answer to a question (rare), she was honest about it. I am pretty sure she checked for the answer soon after the trip. All in all, highly recommended and good value for money. Based on this tour we will know much better the places we want to see on our own if we go back to the city.
