I was expecting to go inside of the buildings on the tour. That is the only negative part of the tour. Mike was awesome!
The tour and in particular the tour guide was really brilliant. Thank you very much for this great experience.
Both guides were good, both guides need to speak louder due to all the downtown noise.

Amazing guides, very interesting tours! Will definitely do more tours with you!
Our guide was very knowledgeable. He was able to answer all of our questions while dealing with the helicopters overhead and a lot of streets being blocked off(the was a bomb scare at underground). We really enjoyed it
I was so interesting and informative. Amanda was great! I'm a Georgia native and didn't realize how much I didn't know!
It was a great tour! I cant wait coming back and revisiting all those buildings and showing them to my wife.
