Our guide, Gabby, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Made the visit an overall great experience. We have been to GCT over 100 times and never saw all the things she pointed out.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Answered every question and was very enjoyable! I will so another untapped tour & recommend it to my friends! Thanks for doing a great job!
Jeff was our tour guide. The tour was great, very interesting & informative. Jeff went at a comfortable pace making sure everyone was together before continuing, each time we moved to a new area. I've been on many tours where this didn't happen. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do the tour if there were many stairs, but we only went up a half staircase. We went outside to look at the building itself, we learned about things from the past and what may take place in the near future. We all learned so many fun facts. I've already recommended the tour to others.
Jeff was a great guide. Very personable, friendly and informative. Looking forward to booking another tour!
