    Brenda was a delight. Even with many of the exhibits closed we had a very informative guided tour. Her enthusiasm for air and space was infectious. We would not have learned a fraction of information had we tried to do the tour without Brenda.

    It’s hard to choose a favorite! EVERYTHING was really spectacular and really interesting. We had a superb guide and enjoyed every minute!!

    I took my grandson on this tour for his 12th birthday. Brenda was an amazing guide and he left saying “I learned so much from her”. It was the very best way to see the museum.

    The Wright Brothers Bicycle! Amanda was great. We had the best time. We will be back soon hopefully, and will look forward to another tour. I personally like having your texted reminders, and the coordination.

    Tony was an excellent tour guide. While the air and space museum itself was awe inspiring and very informative, Tony was able to add even more to the experience with his depth of knowledge on the number of different exhibits. Given covid, there were virtual zoom volunteers who were available to ask questions but it was nice having our own private one to field any questions. Patient, intelligent, and friendly, I would absolutely recommend going on a tour with Tony and this company

    We had Leigh, who was animated and clearly knowledgeable. A great way to get started. If you do the summer season, you might want to do this one in the afternoon, and the outdoor tour in the morning.

    My husband and I really loved this tour, our guide was able to avoid the crowds by going to places out of order.

    Aproveite a oportunidade para ir ao I-max pois tem muita oferta em termos de filmes. Tem muito que ver e com certeza que vai dar por bem passado o tempo que lá estiver.
