"My husband and I attended the Parkside tour led by George- he did a wonderful job! Was very knowledgeable- we learned so much about the area! Loved listening to him describing the architecture and history. Previously we attended the Allentown mob tour with Kathy- she was also very knowledgeable, and did a wonderful job! I am so glad we purchased the explorer passes- worth every penny!"
