TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for engaging for our quick and fun tour today, Tobias. It seemed like all five in your group had a good time…even when our crazy weather was changing by the minute and added to our adventure! Also thank you for the feedback about the SUV vehicle. I’ve never before had the comment or noticed visibility issues from the back seat of the SUV, so I’m going to visit several of my transportation partners and review the window specs for each SUV model in their fleets. Thanks again. Douglas K.

Five out of five stars! Definitely! Douglas was so knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much and had a great time. We'd love to come back to see and learn even more, and we will definitely contact Douglas again. Also: I was remiss in not mentioning what an excellent job David did as our driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thalia, it was great to meet you and Robbie and I had a ball guiding you to see so much. And it's gratifying to know that you plan to return to see and learn more about the Twin Cities. Sounds like you now know that Minnesota is definitely more than snow! I look forward to welcoming you next time.

Douglas picked us up right on time in a beautiful new Cadillac Escalade, and we headed out to discover some local history, tourist attractions, and little-visited but very spectacular buildings. Each stop, tailored to our desires, was informative and fun, and Douglas was a walking Wikipedia on each one. He's even a great photographer and we got some great group shots to help us remember our fun day. Thanks Douglas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dave. I had a ball meeting you, Linda and your in-town friends Bill and Michael. Together, I think we had a great time experiencing the history of “crooked” St. Paul, plus we toured some sights that even your local friends had never experienced. It was a great afternoon. Happy birthday! Douglas K.
Jon HansonUnited States
Douglas and his driver meet us on time and immediately began a wonderful three-hour tour. He asked questions to help center our interest in things we wanted to see or learn about. At the end, we were extremely satisfied and glad we had taken the time to learn about our city. We would recommend Douglas to anyone that wants an interesting and informative tour of Minneapolis/St. Paul.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jon. I'm glad that our tour, a surprise birthday gift for Mary, was a hit! Since you both were raised in Minneapolis and were long-time residents, it was especially gratifying to show-n-tell things that were new for you. Plus, it was a bonus for me to be able to hear your tales of the city. I’ll now think of you every time I’m at the intersection of 50th and Dupont in south Minneapolis…the corner on which you picked up your early morning newspapers as a delivery boy! Douglas K.
Ana MalvestioUnited States
What a amazing experience! Douglas passion in guiding us through Minneapolis, leave us the desire to return soon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ana. I had a great time walking with you showing you downtown Minneapolis and our historic Mill District. I'm so happy you enjoyed our lively sidewalks, lush parks, public art and our evening stroll along the Mississippi River. I enjoyed learning more about Brazil from you, too! I hope we can see each other again when you return to Minneapolis. Thank you! Douglas K.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Adnan, THANK YOU for requesting today's fun tour of Minneapolis & St. Paul. The quick arrangements worked out and I think we covered a lot of great sites during our three hours together. And we also discussed a lot of interesting information as we cruised around the Twin Cities on a beautiful day. I wanted to let you know that I learned quite a bit from you during our tour, too. I really enjoyed our interaction and will add some of your insight to my future tours. Thanks again, Adnan. Douglas K.
