Our tour was very informative. I’ve lived in the Richmond area for 20 years and thought I knew the area well. I learned a lot of interesting information from our guide. There was a nice variety in the restaurants we went to.

The tour was fantastic! I highly recommend it. The Church Hill neighborhood is so pretty and historic. The views from Libby Park are lovely! And the food was terrific! I left completely stuffed. Just book it now, you will have a fantastic time.
