A great tour of the history of the ethnic make up of workers who arrived from 1850-1946. The discord between the different ethnic groups in each culture was amazing. The use of pigeon to communicate when ever they had free time helped to keep the...More

This was a very enjoyable experience. The tour guide was very informative, funny, and interactive. They had umbrellas to borrow as it was raining so it did not inhibit our enjoyment of the village. There are examples of living quarters for the immigrant groups that...More
