Had a wonderful tour! Rivers the tour guide,was personable and informative. And Prince was indeed a prince! I have taken this tour before but the lottery allowed me a different adventure. It had been raining and the tour continued without a hiccup.Highly recommend this company.

Our driver, Gary, did an wonderful job of explaining not only the historic sites but adding his humor to his commentary. The tour ended way too soon. Highly recommend this company.
