Due to health issues, I wasn't able to do the walking tour, but driving by was awesome. It's hard to describe the beauty and different styles of these homes. It's well worth anyone's time to visit Millionaires Row in Danville, Va.

What a lovely tour of such historical homes in the historical district of the city. The tour was easy to follow and the homes were well worth the price of the tour.

Our 3-hour tour with Joyce provided great insight and understanding of Danville's Tobacco Warehouse District, Millionaire's Row, and Holbrook-Ross neighborhood. Joyce is incredibly energetic and knowledgable - it was a great learning experience for me.

A thoroughly enjoyable, informative walking tour. We were lucky enough to tour two houses and the owners couldn't have been more gracious. The tour leader was a pure joy. Highly recommended.
