My husband and two children hired John for a Yorktown tour because our daughters love Hamilton. He was expertly knowledgeable and had costumes for all of us. It was a fantastic tour for which we are grateful. Here I am dressed as Washington!

This tour was more suited for old folks. John Sutton seemed exasperated that we wanted to keep moving. We expected history to come alive, but it died in his rigid, detached delivery. We could have picked up a brochure and gotten the same information. No...More
