Great history and food
The Blackstone tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Jeff was engaged and knowledgable about Omaha history. Jeff cares about Omaha and sharing its roots with the guests and that was evident how he went out of his way to build rapport and tailor his conversation to the group. The food was very good and we absolutely enjoyed this tour more than the other tour we had earlier. We had a Ruben and beer at the crescent moon, pretzels at Farnam house brewing and momos at Kathmandu. If you book a tour with this company, ask for Jeff. At the end Jeff asked for feedback for himself and how to make the tour better.
