    This tour was awesome! Our tour guide Donna was exceptional! She was so knowledgeable and interesting I didn’t want the tour to end.

    Our family had an excellent time with our tour guide, Jet Rehberg. Jet was professional, knowledgeable, interesting, and sensitive to our needs. We had a great time learning about the beautiful architecture, history of the homes and buildings, and enjoyed the leisurely walk. The highlight of the activity was the tour of the Elms Mansion.

Even though it was a walking tour, it was not rushed or, if a concern, strenuous. Beautiful neighborhood, we were her during February, so great weather. Jet our tour guide was knowledgeable, kind and patient
