Jim was incredible. He showed us off the beaten path places I would have never found on my own and kept us all engaged with his stories and historical facts. He even suggested places for us to eat and to visit.

Really wonderful tour. Our guide, Wendy, was outstanding; she even modified the tour just a little because there were a few children on the tour with the other adults, making clear the harsh facts of history, but doing so in a sensitive, kid-friendly way. Very knowledgable, with a fun, engaging vibe.
