Lizzie was much funnier than she gives herself credit for. Entertaining and informative. The old pictures were great and the stories were beyond interesting. One of the best ways to spend an hour in the area. DON'T MISS IT!

What an enjoyable tour! The tour and Lizzie were a great introduction to Eagle River. Lizzie has carefully researched this informative walking tour. Lizzie shared a variety of stories and we loved walking around downtown. To top it off Lizzie provided us with an information sheet with a map listing other fun things to do and restaurants to enjoy. Well done, Lizzie! P.S. The day after our tour while out pontooning,we stopped by her family owned resort,The Last Resort on Otter Lake. WOW! Cabins are immaculate. If you are lucky enough to get a reservation here, you are blessed indeed!

This tour was both fun and informative. Our tour guide, Lizzie, infused the town's history with humor and interesting anecdotes that kept everyone extremely engaged. She also provided pictures of what things used to look like which made the stories much easier to envision. It is a walking tour, but does not go very far and moves at an appropriate pace so that all are easily able to keep up. A fun evening activity in downtown Eagle River, and unlike anything else I've done in the area!

This tour was fantastic. Lizzie was very knowledgeable and had vintage pictures to show us what Eagle River looked like at the time of the story she was telling. We learned a lot. Highly recommended!
