Great tour guide!

The walking tour included a specific narration of the various historical landmarks around the town as well as personal connections to many of the sites along the walk. I would suggest the addition of the fact that it is an uphill walk to the various churches and that people with impairments that hinder walking should take note.

The tour gives good overview of town’s layout and history. It’s interesting and enjoyable. Tour guide we had ( Robert) was knowlegible, professional and engaging. We feel that the tour hit most major city highlights. Pointers given by the guide on various points of interest to visit were highly appreciated. We would recommend the tour to others. ( Word of caution to people with mobility issues. The town is mildly hilly. I would say it’s a moderate intensity hike.)

Besides being totally informative about the local history,Derek tied in the local history with different events in the US that we were not aware of ! He answered all our questions,was professional, courteous, etc. We were very impressed…… & will recommend our friends to him. We give him an excellent rating!We had a tour the day after & wanted to cancel to take Derek. But it was too late to cancel…….
