You were VERY knowledgeable about the Devil in the White City and brought even more to the tour then the book did (although the book was great)! It was wonderful to be able to actually SEE where the World's Fair was. I'd love to come again when it's warm out and see the greenery that is now in hiding. As you mentioned though, we were able to see buildings we wouldn't have been able to see as much of if the leaves were on the trees. I look forward to doing another tour with you! Checking out the hotel afterwards was also a great experience. Thank you for doing such a great job!
