Our tour guide, Allen, was a lot of fun--not corny but pleasant and nice to chat with. He was knowledgeable and interesting. He walked at a reasonable pace, not too slow or fast and kept up a running commentary on what we were passing by. I would recommend his tour. Of course, it was greatly enhanced by the perfect weather we had!
