A Most Enjoyable Walk Through History

Don't Miss This Opportunity!

I'm so glad I chose the small tour with Lucky Bean Tours. It's much more intimate and personal than the large tours. You can hear every word the guide says, and ask as many questions as you'd like. Libby was fantastic! Her family has lived...More

Thanks for the fantastic review! Small groups are the best, and asking and answering questions make the time so enjoyable. I do know a lot about our history and culture, but not everything, and I am always studying and reading. Almost every day I bring...More

That's a pretty big group for 1 tour guide. Frankly, I'd split the group between 2 guides if possible.
