Guest Review

We had a great tour with Tim as our guide. We got there early and had a beer at the International Tap Room, then brought a roadie on the walk. Loved hearing all of the STL and Soulard history, as a local I found this really fascinating. Made a day of it and hit up Llewelyn’s and the Farmers Market. Gorgeous neighborhood and great stories, totally recommend!! - 5 stars from 44Sea on TripAdvisor
