I absolutely recommend going on this tour if you’re visiting Eureka! Especially if you can have Linda as your guide! She was so informative and clearly passionate about the area. Learning that she wasn’t from the area at all and just ended up in Eureka makes so much sense to me after visiting this special town! I only wish we had gone on this tour earlier on in our stay because Linda pointed out so many places down town we wished we had more time to check out!

Megan was our extraordinary guide for Downtown Eureka Springs and did an excellent job! I was not looking forward to the tour that was arranged by my hostess. I don't like guided tours, downtowns, and especially not towns in the mountains. Boy, would I have ever missed out had I not gone! Megan made it informative and entertaining. She has a great sense of humor, comedic timing, and seemed genuinely affectionate about and interested in her town and her entourage. Kudos!

We had such great experiences with our Guide Linda. We learned so much about the town and are amazed at the history here. This tour was so worth it and gave us a whole new perspective of this quaint town.

My husband and I went on the Downtown N Underground tour in Eureka Springs on a whim while staying ina nearby town. The tour gave us a much better understanding of the town in a way we wouldn't have gotten had we just walked around. There were 2 events happening over the weekend as well so there were a lot more people in town than usual. The tour gave us an opportunity to find out more about some local stores and restaurants that we visited afterwards.

Linda was a lot of fun and had great stories. Answered all of our questions and let me go for a bathroom break. The tour is rather hilly so for people with difficulty walking may want to avoid this. Eureka Springs is a very cute and interesting town with a rich history.

What a wonderful tour! Megan was a wonderful guide and gave us a really rich history of the town and a great sense of the mood of Eureka Springs. We really developed a deep appreciation for the community and decided to stay an extra day.

We enjoyed learning about some of the history of Eureka Springs. Spring is in the air this time of year, so it was nice to see flowering trees and tulips in full bloom. The pace was perfect, and between this tour and our hike at Lake Leatherwood, we walked about five miles in a day, which is good because we’ve also been enjoying lots of tasty treats from local restaurants.
