Margaret was not only informative, but also fun. My husband and I had her all to ourselves - which was awesome! Her knowledge of the material is extensive and I’ll treasure the stories and pictures I captured on this tour.

Margaret knits the city and history together, is entertaining and informative. I've always been curious about this mysterious pedway, and now I know the rest of the story. I left feeling like I had a new best friend.
