Fun tour - What a fun tour! Kayleigh, our guide, was a sweetheart, full of energy and information. Learned a lot about the history of Lexington in between some interesting and tasty bites. Our tour was altered, as we had requested an earlier time to start. Thanks for accommodating us and still presenting a fun and delicious time. A good time was had by all.

Lexington tour at its finest - What a great tour! We booked a private walking/history tour so we could see and do what we were interested in and at our own pace. Erin was so accommodating and delivered exactly what we asked for. Her delivery is so enthusiastic and exciting that you can't help but be drawn into all the history and stories about Lexington. The time went by so fast and at the end we felt we were touring with a friend vs a tour guide we just met. Definitely worth the money and definitely do at beginning of stay so you get a good lay of the land and great food/drink recommendations. Thx for a great time Erin.
