Fantastic tour! My guide was Karla and she just loved to show off her quarter and city! She can tell you so much about the local history - just ask! :-) I went on a Sunday morning when the streets were really quiet - I found that very good because you can relax and look around and don’t have to worry about running someone over. :-) Can highly recommend it!!
