I purchased a Groupon for the Gaslamp tour. I was glad that I didn't pay full price. It was ok, but not great. Our tour guide, Thomas, seemed like a newbie. He spoke with no emotion or feeling, and seemed unsure of himself. The stories he told seemed to be lacking details, or maybe it was just the way he told them. I think with a different guide it would have been better. He was a very nice man, but just seemed to lack experience. At the end of the tour, he read a poem that ended with him asking for tips. Tips are voluntary, and it created an very awkward situation. We were all standing there, he read the poem, then put out his hat for the tips. I thought this was very tacky. There was total silence and everyone looked around at each other, not knowing what to do. I would like to do this tour again, either with a different guide or a different company.
