      An excellent overview!
      Sara_S, Feb 2023
      This tour was fantastic! Between origins of phrases we use today to excellent storytelling and history lessons, we really learned a lot. It was not strenuous exercise, and you walked about 30 steps then stopped for more information. It was about 1hr and 45 minutes, true to advertising. You'd want to spend more time going into the buildings, but this was a great way to get the lay of the land.

      Making sense of expressions that made little or no sense before

      The trivia, learning where expressions we use come from and being surprised to learn they originated in Colonial time.

      Tom was super knowledgeable! Great info! Lots of walking and standing so might not be great for the littles, but I thought it was awesome! Definitely get the hot apple cider if you get a chance!

      Can't express how much we enjoyed the tour with Tom. His knowledge and patients are outstanding and we learned so much. On top of it I'll mention the top notch service provided by Lisa the owner of the company. The weather was not perfect and we were not sure if it will take place. She was so helpful and considerable. Highly recommended!

      Excellent! We learned so much! The guide is a wealth of knowledge. I do caution you to wear a hat, comfortable shoes, and bring water. You are out in the open sun for most of the 1+ hour tour. Well done!
