Our tour guide, Maude, was wonderful but she said "Um" too much for my taste. She was knowledgeable and informative. I learned a lot about the cities of Minneapolis & Saint Paul. The bus was clean and the seats were comfortable. I enjoyed our stops and photo opportunities.
This was one of the best tours I've ever experienced. I have been on many city tours around the US and this was one of the best. I learned so much history about Minneapolis-St. Paul. Our tour guide was the best. He was very knowledgeable about the twin cities. He was also very polite and courteous. Also, the bus we were on was top of the line and very comfortable. The driver was great as well. It was an awesome experience. I would definitely visit again.
This is a wonderful tour to get your bearings of St. Paul and Minneapolis. If you're lucky enough to get Tracy as a tour guide, you're in for a treat. She is an encyclopedia of information about the 'cities'. Jeff was a great bus driver, getting us through some seasonal construction work. Do this tour!
Our guide, Maude, was terrible. I don't know if it was her first tour or what, but she kept stuttering and stumbling over her words. She misspoke every other sentence. And she said a bunch of things that were just flat out false. She said Jesse Ventura was the governor of MN in the 1980s. He was elected in 1998. She told us to turn around and look at the Basilica while pointing at St. Paul Cathedral. She also said that walking around one level of the mall of America is 5.7 miles. It is not, it's 1.15 miles. All this adds up to me not believing her when she said other things that might be true. She was also boring and droning and basically just regurgitating facts from her notes. It was not interactive at all. I was pretty disappointed and my husband fell asleep on the bus because he was so bored. I've been on lots of tours, this was one of the worst. I would not recommend.
I am so glad I decided to take this tour. The guide was super informative and friendly. It was a wonderful way to get acquainted with the Twin Cities so I could see what I wanted to go back and explore in more depth. We covered a lot of ground and learned so much history about the area. Definitely worth the price and the time. Highly recommend.
The tour provided just the right amount of information. Both our driver and tour guide were excellent. I learned so much about the cities that I would not know if I had not taken this tour. I would highly recommend this trip for a 1/2 day tour to start out any trip to the twin cities.
The bus arrived at the pick up point right on time. It was a large comfortable bus. The tour guide, Donna, was very informative and did a great job showing us the highlights of St. Paul and Minneapolis. We would certainly recommend this tour.
