“Learned a lot”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Holly was very accommodating. I had my two and a half year-old daughter along. Tour was quite interesting. Her facts were fun and intriguing. She also ties in interesting downtown info as well.

“Presidential Walking Tour”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I picked up a book from the tour place for a self-guided tour. I then found out about Holly's tours. Excellent tour. She knows her presidents. Learn interesting facts you don't learn in history books. Well worth the money,

“Fun & Informative”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I would recommend this tour after spending the day in the Black Hills. Our tour guide (Holly) was awesome! She made the hour and a half go by very quickly! The tour was great for a history nerd like me, but my friends who aren't into history as much really enjoyed it too. She has numerous fun details about the downtown area, the presidents, or the statues themselves. We finished near a bunch of restaurants in the downtown area, which was very convenient. Overall, I was very satisfied and would highly recommend it putting it in your vacation schedule.
