Very informative tour about some of the beautiful old Victorian homes in the neighborhood around Central Park., Wonderful guide who knew all the answers to our questions. Wished we could have gone inside to see some of these homes, but that is apparently only at Christmas time. Guess we will just have to come back!

We loved this walking tour learning about many of the beautiful houses in the historic district. Guide Lily was super knowledgable, AND spoke in a loud, clear voice. Even tho it was a chilly, gray day (with a bit of sprinkles), we had a great time on this tour.

Interesting architecture and all so different, but yet all beautiful! Imagine the creativity in the late 1800s. Incredible. Beautiful day to be walking around in Historic Louisville, too.

The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Did not rush through the history of the area and the houses. Was interesting that she was the great grand daughter of the man who did the woodwork in the Conrad Cauldweld house.

Your operators need to be better informed on when the tours are actually going to be held

We booked a walking tour and your representative kindly took all my information and my money and when we got there the following day there was no tour given that day. We have had a hell of a time trying to get a hold of somebody to get her money back.

Just for clarification. The tour guide was onsite and waited about 5 minutes past the 1:30 pm time slot for your group to arrive. When it did not the guide started the tour with other paying attendees. We are sorry you had difficulty, but this is not a "private" tour. We have to accommodate all of our paying guests in a timely manner and stay on schedule. We will gladly refund your tickets.
