The tour is well worth the cost. Toby was extremely knowledgeable about the City's history. Plus, we were there the day after Christmas so many venues were closed but he went out of his way to provide every possible opportunity. I strongly recommend the tour -this was our 5th with tours by locals tour and we have never been disappointed.
