This tour was ridiculously fun. Rory is effervescent and knowledgeable and kept the tour on track throughout the (3) stops we made for drinks and munchies. Her insights were intriguing and highlighted some little known fact about the City. Would do this again in a heartbeat as long as Rory was doing the guiding. Thanks for a fabulous time Rory
