Excellent! Ray was very informative and entertaining! We will be back for a different tour in the future. It was hot and a lot of walking, so take their advice and wear walking shoes and bring water. David and Diane

Had a great time learning about history of Shokoe Slip/Bottom and seeing some great artwork. Brought my daughter who is 10. She was a little bored but enjoyed the exercise and seeing the trains.
