    Jenny was an AMAZING tour guide! She had a bubbly personality. was flexible, and spoke very good English. She was very accommodating for one of our group members (in a wheelchair). Her patience and understanding made the tour enjoyable for our group. She even arranged another event for our group. Love you Jenny! From the Family Section Crew (Jax, FL and Atl, GA).
