What a fantastic experience. Ingeborg was very good... funny, personable, told great stories. You may not know it but you must learn about "jerry" Harding and "jumbo" johnson!

Specifically picked the Secrets and Scandals Tours because it'd be cool to get some fun facts & outrageous stories from past political scene and the tour was with Boglarka. The tour format was nice & all, but this boglarka seems to have some obsession with...More
