Thank you so much for joining us on tour! It's great to know you had a nice experience. We hope you do come back and explore Old Town! It's a great place to visit. May we suggest heading into the Whaley House, going inside the Seeley Stables and La Casa de Estudillo. Make sure to speak with one of the docents. They are very knowledgeable about the area!
