A Recent Review of this tour

You should not visit Mobile for the first time without using a tour guide... and Craig was fantastic! His knowledge and enthusiasm for his home city makes the visit really special. He was right on time picking me up in his vehicle and we toured the city as he drove to all the interesting historic and cultural sights. Wow, what a neat place!! I give him a Five Star rating based on his complete knowledge and great personality. I would book his tour again, it was that good.
