Very interesting and strong experience. I was there with my 85 year old father, and the route was suitable for both of us. We were lucky to have Jennifer as our guide. She led us through the walk with knowledge, warmth and humor, combining professionalism with passion. Make sure have her as your guide too, and you will be sure to get an experience to remember.

It's good activity if you have the energy to be walking around. We didn't do all the walking just listened. Once your on auburn ave you kinda know what you have to do
