The guide was a university student home for the summer and she was a very gracious informed tour guide. I came away completely happy with the whole experience. I highly recommend the tour it to tourists and citizens as well.

We toured on Labour Day and there was no fee. There is no fee for the tour on any day. It was very interesting and well worth the tour.
