Tims tour is interesting, educational and fun. He must have done this tour many many times but you would not think so, he is so enthusiastic and engaging with information and photographs. We had a great afternoon with him. Highly recommended.

Caveat--I met Tim Thomas, who gives these tours, a number of years ago, and I assumed, based on past encounters, that this would be an excellent tour. I was not disappointed. Gf & I took advantage of a Groupon (may no longer be available). Even...More
