This was one of the best tours I have ever done. It was SO interesting and informative. I was amazed at what I learned. Randy was so personable, knowledgeable and very educated in this area. This tour has sparked me to do some reading and research in this area.

The circle of understanding widens with each tour and the information we exchange and with questions asked. Glad to be with you here. Come back in 2024 when the Stevens and Smith Historic Site will be fully open.

Really informative tour about not only the Underground Railroad but Lancaster history. Randy is a great storyteller and tour guide.

Always good to hear from satisfied customers. And always good to learn that these stories are new to most people because these stories mostly have never been taught in classrooms at least until recently. They are so relevant to today's world.

Not good

Was quite boring didn't really like it could of seen the spots on my own...was not worth the money to expense ...would not recommend it to anyone

Very sorry you felt this way about the tour. It seems you left our two-hour tour only 30 minutes after we started. I must say that you were not with us for most of the sites and stories and the interactions. The other family who stayed with us had a very positive experience, as have all of the other customers who have reviewed my tours and have commented on this website.

Absolutely fabulous! We learned so much! The walk is lovely. Mr Harris spoke informatively and precise about everything! Highly recommend!
icon Response from Host , May 2021
The best thing a tour conductor can receive from guests is a comment about learning something they never knew before...a story that they wished they learned in school, and now they will try to find out more. Thanks so much Theresa.

There is so much history in Lancaster, and I didn't realize the role Lancaster played in the Underground Railroad. The best part of the tour, besides the history being quite interesting, was the expertise Randy has as the tour guide. He was excellent. Unbelievably knowlegable. Highly recommend this tour.

Thank you so much, Chad. Great to be with you and your family. Your group had good questions and great stories of your own. Come back again. RANDY
