Great tour with Jim. Loved learning about some of the city’s unique history and getting to take a tour that took you off the beaten path.

We had a great time on the tour! Capt Bob was super knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I’ve done the historic tour previously and was looking for something new. I was not disappointed!
