Rob did a great job on our tour. He gave a lot of insider knowledge to the city that you don’t get when you are just walking around. Rob helped to explain the details behind the school, and he gave a lot of great information on the tour. I would highly recommend doing the walking tour as we learned a lot. We look forward to coming back!

Our guide, Hannah was a wealth of information about both the town and university. Unfortunately, we were delayed getting to the meeting spot but she was very accommodating in meeting us along the tour route. There was so much to see but we got to all the highlights. If you only have a few hours, this was a worthwhile way to spend them.
