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.

Tessa the guide was super knowledgeable and well spoken. I only wish we could have gone inside a few more places like Independence Hall with the guide explaining things.
