What a fantastic experience!! We learned so much and stayed engaged the whole time. Kelly did a wonderful job. My teenage sons enjoyed it as much as I did. I'm looking forward to using them for the church tour and would recommend them for students or out of town guests when you want to show how unique and interesting our city's history is.
I had a reunion of my elementary school classmates from all over the country and we took the Art Deco tour of the churches and downtown buildings and everyone agreed it was the best high point of our reunion! Our guide was warm and knowledgeable and funny and fun - and there is so much amazing history in Tulsa for everyone to learn! It was well worth what we paid and I will take more family and friends on the tour in the future!
