The tour was mostly about revolutionary war time told in interesting and fun way. A lot of stories about exceptional people of that time, about their political and private live. Great fun.

Terry did an excellent job giving us the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the history he spoke about. We would recommend this tour to anyone. It would have been nice if Cool Destinations would have mentioned more detail on where to meet at. They only gave an address. Take this tour you will be glad you did!!

Good stories and overview. We did NOT get to go inside which was disappointing. Nice way to get an intro to how the USA started.
