If you're coming through the St. Louis area, you might as well be informed about the rich history of this amazing area. Our guide was so caring, patient, and knowledgeable. Even funny at times cracking a joke through the chilly air. 10 out of 10 experience and I highly recommend for couples, youth groups, and families without toddlers (they may grow boredsome with the tour....Nobody enjoys a crabby tot, lol).


Teresa was our guide. She was so knowledgeable in the history of st louis. I didn't realize it was a 3 mile walk but we did fine.we saw so much. The parks were amazing the grand central station was spectacular. The buildings were historical and the arch was quite the site. We will definitely come back and do the arch tour and go to the top. It was amazing to see no traffic in st louis.

It was great except for the rain! The guide Taree was super - she gave us some rain gear to use!! We saw a lot of beautiful brick buildings and learned about famous people that influenced the city of St Louis! We did not go inside any buildings. The tour covered ground from Union Station to the Arch and down Washington Ave.
