The tour was great! Quentin--the youngest son of Teddy Roosevelt--was excellent. He handled our small group with grace, humor and wit. It was wonderful to have a first family come alive through his stories and observations. Excellent in every way! I would recommend this walk and any others produced by Pickle Pea Walks. And encourage people traveling with kids to check out Children's Concierge a great way to find learning actives while traveling with young people. Our 13 year old loved it, too. We are two grateful Grandmoms! Thank you! Bev and Caroline

Three adults and three grandchildren aged 8-14 were enthralled with our guide. Our hope was to highlight on small part of US history for our kids. This tour was the perfect choice. Quentin was cheerfull, humorous and very knowledgeable. We highly recommend and thank him.
