Alan our tour guide was GREAT. We learned so much. And had a blast doing it. He was so friendly .. he definitely knew his stuff and answered so many questions. He made it come alive... he covered alot of ground in 3 hours. Worth every penny.. cold windy and at times rainy...he never missed a beat. Thanks from the West Texas Knights gang ..

Our tour with Paul was wonderful despite the rain and cold weather, he made it very interesting. My niece is quite interested in architecture so our stops were very interesting to her. We recommend this tour!
