BEST DATE NIGHT! George is the perfect gentleman and scholar. Super entertaining and an intimate way to see landmarks (some well known and some not so much). Beautiful way to see the city at night. George is not only very engaging, but also respects the city and its history- I would even recommend this tour to the locals if they haven't already experienced it.

Amazing, fun and exciting! It was a brilliant birthday present for my sister. Jack was a fantastic host and made the experience really enjoyable! Would definitely recommend!

Very entertaining evening with tales of ghastly ghosts and a lot of history thrown in! Nice couple of hours that flew by with our enthusiastic host George. Loved it

Tour was great fun. The guide did a great job. Very entertaining.
