We enjoyed our tour of the Capital Square. The tour is only an hour but ends at the Capital so participants are able to take advantage of the free tour provided there which was also excellent!

This is a walking tour which covers a lot of ground. I would not recommend it for anyone with mobility issues. The guide was knowledgeable. THere were no bathroom stops. It is too long and detailed for children.
