Thanks to George and Kate(?), my family and I had the tour of a lifetime. We truly appreciated all that we learned in the amount of time we learned it. We loved the sites, though we've seen them a time or two, but to have someone take us and tell us more than we knew was a great pleasure. They were on time, dressed for the occasion and really nice and the price was just right. If we tour again, it will be with Urban Adventures.
