“I honestly have not had much interest in American Revolutionary history, but I found myself drawn in by our guide's wealth of knowledge and obvious love of history. He was a fantastic, knowledgeable and humorous guide. He really made the history come alive. I'd choose any tour he offers for our next round of out of town visitors.”
