Date: Sep 8/18

My tour with Jim was outstanding. He was on time, helped with my luggage, and had a perfect itinerary. His knowledge of history, architecture, and the perfect scenic routes was impressive. I have given him 5 stars and would recommend him to anyone desiring a tour in the St. Paul area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jette, Thank you for your kind words. I enjoyed our tour as well. In answer to your question during the tour, the sculpture that you photographed at Indian Mounds Park is entitled "The Sacred Bowl," and the sculptor is Duane "Dewey" Goodwin, a Minnesota-based, Native American artist. Thanks again. Jim

Tour: #453370, The Mississippi River and the Twin Cities, Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States    view tour
Date: Aug 18/18

Jim did an awesome job showing us (who are locals!) and our out of town guests some of the great sites of Minneapolis/St. Paul, including the Mississippi River. He was very receptive to questions and comments, and very knowledgeable about the cities. We only wish we had more time to spend with him. We will certainly ask him again, because there are so many things we didn't get to this time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alice, I, too, had a great time yesterday, and I would jump at the chance to show you and Ed (and guests) more parts of the Cities (see, e.g., today's StarTribune at pp. E1 and E6, sacred spots of the Dakota). Thanks again. Jim

Jim was an articulate and knowledgeable guide, and was kind enough to tailor the tour to the needs of my elderly mother. We only had a few short hours in Minneapolis- St. Paul and Jim definitely made us want to come back. He drove an immaculate new car, and was attentive and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glenn and Barbara, Thank you for your kind words. I enjoyed showing you and your friends the cities, and I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the tour as well. As to my car, it is in fact six years old and has over 130,000 miles on it. But I have taken good care of it. In Minnesota, if you take good care of your car, come winter, it will take good care of you. As it happens, I have recently ordered a new car. So when you return, I will indeed have a new car to carry us around. Thanks again. Jim
