Jazz and Historical Tour

By: Michelle Cantu


Reviewed on: 23 Mar 2018

We took two private tours: one for the historical aspect and one for history of jazz. Both were amazing and would do them again. We were fortunate to have Tyler as a guide and he was top notch. I can’t say enough positive about him: intelligent, personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a private car as well and would recommend that as well.
