This was a wonderful tour. The museum was informative (I wish we would have more time to read the information). Our tour guide for the bike tour and museum was informative and patient. The restaurant where we ate lunch was good (despite my hesitation). The food was simple and delicious. We appreciated the cooperation of the tour agency to run our tour despite our small group. We wish the museum had a gift store.
