The tour guide was very engaging and really brought to life the events leading up to and around Lincoln's Assassination. Many of the landmarks have changed, so it isn't so much what you see, but new things you learn. Definitely a highlight of the trip!

This was our favorite tour and second one with Carolyn. She brought the story of Lincoln's assassination to life and everyone on the tour was listening with great interest. We highly recommend this tour and make sure to go on the one with Carolyn!
