A look at the Rocks history.

Our lady guide was very knowledgeable. She spoke well and was enthusiastic about her history of the Rocks. The distance covered was very small but the info was great. I've visited the Rocks a few times before but saw places I never knew existed.

A Little Too Much Detail for Me

Our guide was outstanding and definitely knew his stuff! The tour was interesting but it was a little too long and detailed for me. My sister liked it better since she is more of a history buff.

Great tour with interesting history of the area

Max gave us a great tour of the Rocks area. I love social history (dealing with the individuals that were affected by the history of an area) and he really delves into that. Great stories of the people who lived through the era of transportation...More
