Had a great time on our tour through Portsmouth. Very informative and fun. Roxie was a great guide and offered so much information, history and mystery. We love visiting Portsmouth and Roxie's tour made it even more intriguing for future visits. Well done!

I had a great time with Roxie, she is very knowledge and fun to interact with. I spend a lot of time in Portsmouth, but never knew that a woman with my maiden name had a hand in the horrific fire of 1813!
