Great way to hear about Duluths past. Comfortable van to travel around in, many stops to see where events happened. Loved the stop at Blacklist for a beer and a haunting story. Guides were very knowledgable. Can't wait to try another of their tours!!

I've been traveling to Duluth for 50 years, and this tour took me to places I didn't know existed. The guide (KYLE) obviously has a passion for Duluth and was very helpful and knowledgeable. We'll definitely look into other Duluth Experience tours in the future.
