    Andrew our tour guide was so knowledgeable about American History and was able to add such depth/story telling to the meaning and significance of every stop on the tour. My HS age son and I really appreciated that! Great way to spend the 4th of July:) Thank you Andrew!

    Andrew is great!! Very knowledgeable and friendly. The only bad thing I could say was it was hard to hear sometimes. I think he would benefit with a speaker of some kind. Two thumbs upπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

    My Friend and I took the Historical Independence Walking tour with Kyle. It was very informative and fun. Kyle is well read about the history and shared stories about individuals and life at that time. Would recommend Kyle as a tour guide..

    This was the best tour we've done on this US holiday. Andrew not only gave us interesting information delivered in an easy to understand way, but he also answered all of my questions. He made history come alive for us. Understanding what led up to the revolution was as important as what came afterwards.

    Andrew did a wonderful job with imparting the history of the city. He engaged well with my 11 year olds and was accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful time!

    This was one of the most interesting and informative tours we've ever done. So much personal information about the major players and what led up to the fight for independence from England which really filled out our limited knowledge. We got so much more out of this experience due to our wonderful guide Andrew. Who answered all of my endless questions.
