I have been wanting to take this tour for some time and was finally able to tonight. Anna did a fantastic job and we enjoyed her dramatic retelling of events at each stop. I highly recommend the tour!

I’m glad I happened upon this tour as I was wandering around historic Wilmington during a one day visit. If you like history narrated by good storytellers, this is the best 90 min money can buy. At sunset, you are led by one of many...More
