My family of 5 enjoyed the tour. Using the app was easy. The starting location was not very clear. Although we had the address and location correct according to the app, the actual building was across the parking lot. It took us a few minutes and asking some locals to figure out the starting point. But overall, it was a good experience.

Sandy was an exceptional guide! You can tell she is deeply interested in the content and connecting with each person on her tour. Definitely a can’t miss experience!
