Great tour!

It was downpouring but everyone in the group stuck it out because the tour guide was amazing! We did a GPS self guided walking tour the day before so even though I’d been to some of the spots and knew a general history, she provided much more details and a LOT of interesting tidbits! HIGHLY recommend! Wish I remembered her name, but she was awesome!
