I learned a lot about this fascinating college town to which we have recently moved. Sally knows the local yore and handled all questions like a pro. A fun tour and we hope to take others with her.

A great and easy walking tour of Franklin Street and UNC. Sally is an alum so she is an expert about downtown and the UNC campus. She points out historical spots that most people walk by without knowing of their significance. My favorites were the murals and Ackland Art museum. The time goes by fast because she presents so much interesting information about the area and the school that you would have missed if you took a self guided tour. I highly recommend Sally's tour. Thank you, Sally!

What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! Sally was a terrific guide, and we truly enjoyed meeting her. My husband and I were both students at UNC over 40 years ago and lived there for many years. As we walked around Franklin Street and the oldest part of campus, Sally told us fascinating things we never knew about Chapel Hill. It was a special afternoon for us, and we appreciate that she has taken the time to put this tour together. We are very glad we went!

I was a UNC student in the 1970s and lived in Chapel Hill for years afterward. When I came back to visit recently, I took Sally’s free tour and learned interesting things about Chapel Hill and the University that I didn’t know. Sally is personable, professional, and very knowledgeable and I would gladly have paid for her tour.
