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.
