Anthony made our city tour very memorable with his many stories of historical events and places. His attention to my husband's needs, as a handicapped person was truly remarkable, making sure we sat in front and always assisting him on and off the bus.
He also helped us recoup my misplaced purse which could have ruined our vacation.
