    Learning about how Lancaster played such a big role in abolitionist history, breweries, and also its beautiful diverse architecture. Mike was a great guide. Informative, friendly & knowledgable. He “got” our group and made it a really enjoyable afternoon. Highly recommend and would take this tour again.

    Great tour. We enjoyed seeing the preserved excavation area inside the Marriott, walking through a section of old town and hearing about the history of Lancaster and the beer. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We highly recommend!

    This was a great walking tour to understand the history of Lancaster. I would highly recommend it if you’re interested in how the city began and became what it is today. We also stopped at two pubs with a large selection of craft beers to choose from. The beers were delicious. I would recommend this tour for anyone who’s interested in the history of Lancaster that is not just about the Amish. The tour guide also was a local and extremely knowledgeable. Everyone wore masks and were socially distance.

    Thanks Laura! Much appreciated. Mike
