I'm glad you liked the tour and the recap. I keep the pace moving and I know folks aren't exactly going to keep notes, so there is a recap sent to folks that book on my website. Just something to trigger the ol' memory banks if so inclined.

I keep things clicking along pace wise because I've discovered that most folks like that. That being said, definitely just ask if you want to take photos. I will make time for it. I'll try to do a better job mentioning this during the orientation.

That's great to hear that your teenagers enjoyed the tour. I certainly enjoy having teenagers on the ride, you can goof around a bit more, but sometimes I am not very good at reading if they are having fun or not!
