Our guide was so knowledgeable as well as personable. It made for a great afternoon adventure!!!
We had to move starting time several times and Helene Mansheim was very flexible. She gave a very well informed presentation and was helpful in navigating our mobility-hindered individuals to minimize climbing stairs. She is an outstanding docent.
