Exciting and unique tour. Different from other walking tours. Our guide was very passionate and most of us ended up staying after just to talk and discuss the topics mentioned on the tour. It was a great experience and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking something other than the typical walking tour.

This was truly a unique experience. The history and stories Cary shared during the walk would otherwise have gone unknown by our group. The end was quite well done and the discussion afterwards was fun and interesting. I would definitely enjoy another themed evening like this one!
