John gave us a great tour and told us lots of fun facts about the city. Although I’ve taken the tour before, it was somewhat different this time because every guide is unique. I learned a lot and my kids had fun.

No one takes a Segway tour anywhere and wants to park the Segway twice 10 minutes in and hear a history lecture. People take the tours to ride the things! Didn’t like parking the Segway 3-4 times.
