Really enjoyed this tour. Patrick is easy-going and knowledgeable. Our tour even got us a discount for our visit the next day to the Eastman Museum. Certainly worthwhile since we really new next to nothing about Rochester.

Patrick did a outstanding job! We enjoyed learning new and interesting information about the Park Ave neighborhood. Patrick even supplied free bottled water as well as a discount coupon to a museum. We left him nice tip.
