Guests have said:
“I’ve been visiting the area for 35 years, and yet almost everything that was pointed out on this walking tour was new to me. Highly recommended for something different!”
“I spent the rest of the weekend relaying the fun stories and anecdotes to anyone who would listen. Can’t recommend this tour enough.”
“…this tour is worth it just for the looks you get from passers-by as you follow a woman proudly holding up a plunger.”
