“Worth the $25 fee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

Great van tour that gives you lots of history and interesting information about Eureka Springs. Driving and looking in the historic district is very hard. You really need to walk it or hire a tour. First stop is the old bank with lots of old artifacts. Stopped at one of the springs on the way to the Crescent Hotel. Love the old Victorian homes. The highlight of the tour was the stop at Thorncrown Chapel.

“Delightful and informative tour of Eureka Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

Our tour directors picked us up at the hotel and gave us a detailed tour of "Old" Eureka Springs. This included a tour of an historic bank, the Crescent Hotel (and its ghost stories), ,Victorian houses, Thorncrown Chapel and many more points of interest. I would highly recommend this tour for an overview of Eureka Springs.

“Aweaome Tourist Town Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

Michelle was great. We came in town for the weekend on a recommendation from friends. We wanted to familiarize ourselves with the town in order to get the most out of our trip. We decided to do a van tour. On the recommendation of our bed and breakfast host, we chose this tour. My wife and I could not have been happier. I think the tour lasted 2-2.5 hours. We went down every road and Michelle explained the"what" and "why's" behind Everything. She is extremely knowledgeable. We stopped and got out at the town bank (neat place), some springs, the Cresent Motel and the Crownthorn Chapel. There was so much packed into this trip. This was an excellent value for the little money the tour cost. This is an absolute must do for an out of towner new to the area or even a returning patron of Eureka Springs.

So happy you enjoyed the tour. I love my new 13 passenger high top van. So much easier to get in and out and ooh what huge windows it has. The better to see out of my dear!

“Historical and Architecturally Informative Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

We were a group of 6 taking the tour on a glorious May afternoon. it was the best way to spend our short time in Eureka Springs. Everyone raved about the entire experience. Michelle gave us a full range of highlights of the area and many interesting facts and features. This is a national treasure of a town and we pray that it will be fully appreciated by it's citizens and preserved. We are all anxious to return and stay longer next time to further explore the areas that we learned of on our tour. We highly recommend this tour.

“Great way to see the town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

I highly suggest that any new visitor goes on this tour. Its fun interactive and you get to see many of the sights and learn about the history of the town. The tour guide is so much fun and brings a lot of personality to the tour.
