Review of: Highlights Tour
Very informative for sure but the best part is actually riding the Segways. They are very easy to ride. Young and old will enjoy the ride. We had 5 in our group and everyone wants to do it again!

Lori and Berkley are very knowledgeable about Danville and made this tour so much fun! Everyone in my group was excited to ride Segways for the first time; it was a blast! We really enjoyed all the little tidbits of history that Lori doled out during our jaunt. I can't wait until we're all together again and can take another tour :)

Spent the weekend in Danville. Had so much fun with the first tour, we ended up doing all three. Great way to learn about the history of Danville and see the beautiful sights. Berkley and Lori and very knowledgeable about the area, and have so many stories to tell. We enjoyed every minute. I have never ridden a Segway so was nervous before I arrived. They immediately put my mind at ease. They are good teachers, patient and thorough. I cannot wait to go back. Highly recommend if you can visit Danville, be sure to book a tour. ENJOY
