I was with two of our grandsons, ages 9 and 12, and all three of us thoroughy enjoyed this tour Tessa - I THINK that was her name but sadly I'm not 100% sure - was great! She was a lot of fun and we were fascinated with all the things we were able to learn in a short amount of time. It was so much better than wandering around on our own. The length of the tour was perfect and the fact that the boys had a good time and remembered what they learned to tell their parents, is a good testament to Tessa and the tour as a whole.

Great tour. Very informative and I especially liked the in depth information on Ben Franklin and his life and impact. Tim did a great job and was a very personable guide.
