Lizzie was very pleasant and informative about the history of Eagle River. I really liked the historical photos that she displayed so that that I could compare historical Eagle River with present day Eagle River. If you want to know about Native American history, development...More

The name of the tour alone tantalized me into purchasing tickets for this event. Our tour guide, Lizzie (owner), was pleasant and kind. Couldn't ask for anything more there. Unfortunately, the information was pretty much a basic history of Eagle River. She provided information and...More

I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed. When formulating the tour, I did want a ghost tour, but in all my research, I found no ghost stories in downtown Eagle River. I pride myself on accuracy; therefore, I didn't market myself as a...More

The guide who grew up in the area took us on a tour of strange historical sites in the town. She was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. I highly recommend the tour.

Our guide Lizzy was knowledge and friendly. Although I had visited Eagle River many times in my youth she enlightened me on the turn of the century history of this logging town and early 1900's gangster stories. Good value.
