It was so awesome!!! We had a beautiful night, a great guide and wonderful friends! What more could we ask for? We learned so much about the city and had a fun spooky experience!

Tour guide was very energetic - and cared about sharing information. The pace of the walking between tour stops was to fast for our group, and the guide didn't always keep track of group lagging behind, particularly at intersections. This was especially difficult near the end of the tour, as there were 20 stops over 1.2 mile walk.
