James is very knowledgeable, friendly and had interesting anecdotes so I really enjoyed our tour. Doing this walking tour gave much more background and gravity to what we were seeing than if we were to visit by ourselves. Would 100% recommend 👍

Excellent tour. James was very knowledgeable and very anxious to answer all questions. Our only concern is that it was a larger than normal group and it was a little difficult to hear in some of the more crowded areas.

I highly recommend James for this tour....he was informative, sensitive, and knowledgeable which made the 4 hour tour great! The tour itself is amazing and you cannot believe the history you are actually walking though...goosebumps and nauseating at the same time.
