Jim is a great tour guide, and an awesome storyteller. Every story he had about the locations, it would send chills to our bodies (no joke). Plus, he was a cool guy who explained the history and events of the places. 5 stars for him!

Jim was great!!! So knowledgeable and engaging. We did this during the COVID-19 shutdown and he was still super enthusiastic and used whatever connections he could to get us into places. Highly recommended. Very fun. We will definitely be back once the restrictions are lifted.
