The best 4 hours spent in a new city!

Frank is an exceptional tour guide. He took us to the highlights and provided a lot of flair and commentary during our tour. When asked questions about places to go and where to stay away from, he was able to provide suggestions. He was very flexible, especially when people took a little longer to see something or to finish their beverage during our stops. At the end of the tour, he dropped us off at our hotel, but offered to drop us off anywhere. We took a lot of pictures and shared a lot of laughs. Frank really loves his city. He also asked how we felt about what we saw and if there were any places we still wanted to see.

Fun and educational tour.

Our guide, Frank, was very informed, and congenial. We enjoyed the sights and the information. He also was a good driver. Great 4 hours of sightseeing. We liked being in a van setting, rather than a large bus. We were able to see more and get to places a bus can’t go.

Our guide was sweet but drove a van she wasn’t used to. Driving and talking/pointing out sites not a good combination. She has an “inside voice” as she said and the wireless headphone speaker she used wasn’t charged and didn’t work. Could not hear her at all in the van ride. Just dropped us off in different areas for 15-20 minutes without any guidance. Overall awful tour. Would not recommend to anyone.
