I enjoyed this excellent tour. There was a nice mix of components. The tour started with a brief introductory video in the visitors center. The remainder of the tour was split between short walks and a sightseeing bus journey. We were able to walk around two different architectural sites. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions. I felt like I had a very good introduction to the city of Columbus. I also appreciated the comfortable seating on the bus as well as the ease of boarding. The guide spoke into a microphone. It was easy to hear him, even when other passengers were talking. Excellent tour that I highly recommend.

We had a great time learning about this hidden gem of a city. The architecture is amazing! Hope to return soon and tour the Miller house.

The tour was an excellent way to see the city and hear the stories about how the city was developed. We are locals and had not heard many of the various ways the unique architecture has formed the city.

Highlights included interesting architecture and historical background and personable tour guide. Enjoyed most of the tour however a few issues we had were the type of bus used made it very difficult to actually see the buildings and surrounding ( perhaps full windows and single deck bus), tour guide showcased the jail and HUD housing in a way that made us feel uncomfortable as if we were looking at zoo enclosures, and some parts of the tour highlighted fairly unremarkable aspects of the city's buildings. Very expensive too for what you get and the guide isn't even paid.

We did the architecture bus tour followed by the Miller House and enjoyed both immensely. We had a very well informed guide (thanks Henry!) who really knew his architects and designers and was able to enhance our experience immensely. I appreciated his commentary on the significance of the landscaping design too. We are really looking forward to Exhibit Columbus in fall. Columbus has only 46,000 population and ranked 6th in the US for its architecture. Absolutely worth seeing
