Eddie is one of your BEST! We were always excited when we had a tour with Eddie given he is friendly, thorough, detailed, and shows a real desire to make sure his customers know and even appreciate the places we walk on his tours. We were so impressed how he kept us listening and learning....and that we WANTED to keep listening and learning! His recommendations for places to visit/eat/check out after the tours was very, very helpful. Thank you for hiring Eddie! He is an asset to your team!

I enjoyed the tour very much and the guide was very good. Had Mar for the North Beach tour as well. I liked her.
