What a fun AND educational tour. Russell made sure all of us were comfortable riding the segways before we set out. He loves history and really did his research. And he has a great sense of humor. He even provided bottled water. Loved this tour.

One of the best tours I've taken. Russell is very safety conscious as well knows his history of the town. Definitely a must do if in the area!
