Our tour was primarily a history tour, but it was so fascinating to learn about the buildings, the architecture, and the people. Our guide dabbled in stories of hauntings and ghostly experiences as we reached certain areas. I felt it was a great balance and our guide was so knowledgeable on everything. Had a blast
