Hidden in plain sight treasures! - I was very pleasantly surprised with the tour. The history information was very interesting and the 3 bars we went to were all great. Two of them I didn't know existed and I live here! We met nice people on the tour and our tour guide Ariel was great! Would highly recommend it and might do it with other friends another time!

Kate was awesome! - What a great experience…we went to bars/speakeasies that we never would have known about (or walked right by) if we weren’t on a tour! Our guide, Kate, was awesome! She was friendly and knowledgeable and told great stories! She kept us moving and on schedule. I would definitely do this again!

A Fun Experience! - What a fun tour! We visited 3 Speakeasy’s you wouldn’t know were there! As they say, hidden in plain sight! Arielle, our tour guide, was a lot of fun and gave us great stories about each place! It was also nice getting a drink at taxi place and being able to get to know the fellow participants!

Horrible tour and experience but a good guide. - The guide was good but the tour was not good at all. Horrible selection of places to go and not worth the cost of a ticket for what you get for your experience. There are so many other better places to go.
