We ended up being the only people on the tour and had a fantastic day with Terry. He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed learning great information on our stops. He also pointed out places and landmarks along the way that we enjoyed as music fans. I highly recommend this tour as a great overview of the city and outer areas. The photography tips were greatly appreciated as well.
Excellent trip

The falls were fantastic and driving through the township gave a real sense of the history. Added bonus was Terry with his photography tips and taking some great photos with me in them.
