Had a perfect fall day for the tour and David was obviously knowledgeable of the area and history of the city. Comfortable pace and even though a day tour he added a ghost story or two . Good value for the money and would recommend

Really nice tour — good pace, lots of insights both about the architecture and the development of the city/neighborhood through the present. Saw some things we never would have found on our own. Definitely recommend.

Lots of history on the tour that was discussed, not limited to the actual homes. History about the neighborhood and Louisville was discussed as well.

Tourist Beware
HappyTraveler
, Oct 2020
Debra was a tour guide with a very negative and angry attitude. Since David Dominé’s book and knowledge were mentioned in the tour description, I asked about him, thinking he might be a part of the local history. The tour guide responded angrily "he is not the only one that knows our history. I've done years of research too." Wow! Debra interrupted any questions. It felt like the whole tour was about her complaints. Complaints about how bad the traffic is now and how it destroys the old homes. Complaints about how the home owners don't know how to, or want to, take care of the old homes. Constant repeated complaints. She could have conveyed this information in an informative manner as part of the tour instead of making it the focus of the tour. What an absolute waste of our last day in this beautiful city.

So sorry you didn't enjoy your tour with Debra; as you can see from previous reviews, she is one of the most popular guides. The next time you are back in town, please contact me directly and let me show you around in person, as my guest. I hope you enjoyed the next leg of your trip, to the Ark.
