It is the rare guide who combines in-depth knowledge of the subject matter, a winning personality and careful attention to the needs and interests of his/her audience. Joseph is the trifecta of tour guides embodying all three qualities. My husband Steve and I thoroughly enjoyed...More

This is our second time to take guests on Joseph’s tour. Loved it the first time but we enjoyed it even more this time. There is so much fascinating information that we learn something new every time. We highly recommend this tour to everyone.
