Had a great time learning about history of Shokoe Slip/Bottom and seeing some great artwork. Brought my daughter who is 10. She was a little bored but enjoyed the exercise and seeing the trains.

We had a great time on the tour! Michael was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the Church Hill area of Richmond. Was pretty flat, about 2 hour tour. Definitely bring water though!

We had a wonderful afternoon with our Richmond Tour Guy, Michael. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. We have lived in The Richmond area all our lives. This tour gave us new perspective and history of our beautiful city.

Our tour of Church Hill was awesome. Our guide, Michael, was knowledgeable, passionate, and entertaining. We learned a lot about the area and Richmond as a whole. Tour was about 2hrs and was mainly level ground. Highly recommend the Richmond Tour Guys!
