My passion for history and years of experience giving tours for hundreds of clients has allowed me to hone my ability to cut to the core of a place and give essential information to understand what happened there. I however, also give enough unique and personalized stories to allow clients to get a real feel for a location. I believe that a tactile experience, one when a person stands in a place where important and intense history was made, allows people to gain a greater understanding of a location. If someone is a completely new to a location and knows nothing about the history, I can give a strong introductory explanation which goes beyond just dates and names. Also, if someone has a deep understanding of the history, I can give facts and details that will add to that understanding. These tours will appeal to all levels of interest. At FFC Historical Tours, we strive to give clients an enjoyable informative tour. We hope to have the honor of your business.
