Janet is extremely knowledgeable. She isn't using a memorized script. She is also very personable and has a lot of interesting facts you wouldn't find elsewhere. So worth the price!

$25 for the history tour, according to her website and my memory. Janet also suggested a breakfast place beforehand, A bit expensive, but a lovely start to an enjoyable day.
