Thank you Doug. It was one of the best city tours ever. Do you mind if I write to Trip advisor recommending you? My husband is hard of hearing and he heard every word. That is so important-great voice and your extra materials to pass around were a plus. Thank you so very much.......Janice

Thanks for all you did to make yesterday such a wonderful mystery trip! Everyone really enjoyed the churches with their amazing architecture and also all that you added to enhance the experience.

Nordland Church - Paynesville, MN

Thank you Doug for being our guide at Lakewood Chapel and six churches in the Minneapolis/St. Paul. It was time well spent – appreciated the history that accompanied each location. I was not familiar with the “St. Louis, King of France” church – the stained glass windows that echoed the history of the French Canadians was definitely “WOW.”

Had a great time on the trip from Rochester last week with Home Federal bus tour. Doug did a great job and the Cathedrals and Churches were beautiful.

Doug, We all enjoyed your tour so much! It did seem like all of us "resonated" - didn't it? It truly made our trip to the Twin Cities something we will remember for a long time (instead of just another "in-and-out of the hotel" conference experience.) You obviously have a gift for providing tours and for storytelling!

Hi Doug, We sure did have a wonderful time. We enjoyed our day with you so much. I feel like we have a real friend now in lovely Minnesota! We told our tour director about you too. I think it's wonderful that you can make a living doing something you love and enjoy doing so much.

Doug, A big THANKS to you from WHS '61 Reunion Committee. The bus tour couldn't have gone better. Many positive comments - even from some who were apparently re-playing key games from the 1960-61 basketball season. We will be pleased to recommend to others who may inquire.

Jim L., Minneapolis, Minnesota

Thank you, Doug, for helping me with research for my novel by catering our tour of St. Paul to places and information important for my book. Your knowledge about St. Paul's history is incredible. Your enthusiasm is contagious. By the end of our tour, I had enough information and excitement about St. Paul to write several books. I would recommend Twin Cities Tour to anyone seeking a personalized, enjoyable tour of the Twin Cities.

Sherry D., Phoenix, Arizona

Hi, Doug. They had a great time and thought you were terrific. I will keep you in mind for future visitors! Thanks so much.

Helen, Columbia Heights, Minnesota

Hi Doug! My mom, my aunt and my cousin thoroughly enjoyed the tour last Friday! They had so much fun, even though the weather was nasty. They said you were a fantastic tour guide, and really fun! Thanks so much for coming through for us! I'd gladly recommend your tour services.

Susan, Beltsville MD

Hi Doug, We shall make a point of recommending your company to any friends or acquaintances coming your way.

John A. and family, Nairobi, Kenya

You are a great ambassador for the twin cities! Thank you so very much for your time, talent and knowledge. I am sure our paths will cross again.

Just wanted to say “Thanks again” for all your help on our recent trip to Minnesota. Your company was the perfect solution to our family’s needs. Thanks to you, we had a wonderful time. Although my mother and I had been talking about going to the Mall of America for years, I really did want to see more than the Mall on the trip. We loved seeing Stillwater, the St. Croix River cruise, the beautiful St. Paul Cathedral, Lake Minnetonka, Cottagewood, the sights of Minneapolis, the Mississippi River, and all the other treasures you shared. Thanks for your knowledge, your service, and your graciousness!

Doug C., Lake Forest, CA

I want to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you during our recent Annual Meeting. As our Twin Cities Tour Guide, you were just superb. I know you really had to abbreviate your customary presentation to fit into our one-hour schedule. Your breadth of knowledge was evident in the amount of detail you were able to provide in answering our members’ questions.

Joyce G., Bankers Association, Minneapolis, MN

I wish to thank you for your prompt response to our request for your tour last Sunday morning. I am pleased to report to you that our clients thoroughly enjoyed their tour and were very enthusiastic. They felt that they could highly recommend your services.

Lucy K., travel agent, Concord, NH

A note of thanks for the outstanding tour that you provided to the Russian judges last Monday.

Paul M., U.S. District Court, Saint Paul, MN

It has been far too long for me to have waited to tell you again how much we appreciated your guiding us on the two-day city tours of St. Paul and Minneapolis in October!

Barbara D., tour company owner, Odessa, TX

Our escort Barbara A. passed along all the good comments about you and your information so I could book you for future trips. You got rave reviews from everyone!

Katie S., Uncommon Journeys, Oakland, CA

I have to thank you whole heartedly for giving my family and I a marvelous day we will never forget. Keeping the attention of teenage boys is never easy but you brilliantly tweaked a nearly full day tour combining just enough history and fun facts to keep us all enthralled. The boys even mentioned some of the locations and information on their Facebook pages, and that's quite an honor! So thank you again Doug.

Jan H., Tulsa OK

We think you do a great job and we will use your services again. Thank you for arranging all of that work for us and especially with us increasing the numbers a couple of times!

Tracy C., Ecolab; St. Paul, MN

The Midwest Queen's Program thanks you for providing such a wonderful and informative tour of the city during the "10 Best Days of Summer." We hope to continue the relationship between Twin Cities Tours and the Minneapolis Aquatennial in the future!

Missy G., Minneapolis Aquatennial

I am a tourist from Japan who enjoyed your tour in October. I am pleased to send you a few pictures I took during your guide in Twin Cities. My colleague and I really enjoyed your guide. We were really impressed with beautiful environment in Minnesota and people's effort to conserve it. With a lot of kind people and their heartwarming welcome, our stay in Minneapolis was quite pleasant.

Takeshi H., Matsumoto City, Japan

Thanks again so much for a lovely and very informative tour of the Minneapolis area and most especially the Mary Tyler Moore Show part! I would go back next year and see it again.

Candace J., Worcester, MA

Thank you for my nice tour in and around Minneapolis. Perhaps you will come to Zurich sometime and visit us.

Yvonne U., Zurich, Switzerland

We returned Wednesday to Atlanta with glowing reports of our trip to the Twin Cities. Our first mention is of the tours you made so interesting, and I was quite honest in saying that you should have the Ph.D. in metaphysics. You were the answers to my prayers that we would have a grand time in the city.

Bruce F., Atlanta, GA

We wanted to thank you again and let you now that we really enjoyed our Twin Cities tour on November 13. Your ability to add personal touches to the tour (like stopping at McDonald's for egg nog milkshakes) really made the trip memorable.

Joanna L., California

Thank you for the wonderful tour. We don't forget you!

Ahmed El K. and family; Belvedere, Casablanca

We are singing your praises to people back home. You are a fine, patient, kind gentleman. Hope we might meet again --- Who knows? Thanks for sharing your lovely city with us. If they could move Minneapolis to a warmer climate we'd be there in a minute!

Rose and Rozalin, El Segundo, CA

Thank you again for a really grand tour of your "home town." It was a memorable time for my brother Jack and me. We have been telling our family and friends what a special part of our trip it was.

Ann W., Miami, Florida

You took my two kids and myself for a private tour. We had so much fun and learned so many interesting things about Minneapolis!! And now you have mailed my kids' note from Mr. Little Guy. My daughter Katie has a form of dwarfism so she is short. Mr. Little Guy is very special to her. She thinks he must be short too because he likes small things. It was very special to her that you did this! [Guide note: The home of Mr. Little Guy is a favorite visit on the Children's Tour.]

Lori J., Los Angeles, CA

Thank you again for your tour of Minneapolis/St. Paul & St. Croix. Both of us enjoyed the tour so much and your company.

Cheryl L., Reykjavik, Iceland

We really enjoyed our tour of the Twin Cities.

Nancy and Joyce, Kingsport, TN

We loved the tour and info that you provided. My students mentioned many things that they actually learned from the tour.

Angie D., teacher from Tupelo, Mississippi

Hi Doug, Thanks again! The group was so pleased with the tour and they have been teasing those who arrived late and missed the tour that they missed the best tour they have ever been on! The fact that we were right before Halloween gave them some extra things to see that they hadn't expected!

Brad S., University of Minnesota

We loved it! Thank you!

Constance W., Washington D.C

Thanks - I thought the tours were great and everyone thought that they learned some new things each time - I would definitely recommend you.

Mary H., Minneapolis, MN

Your tours could not have been a better introduction to Wobegone! We appreciated your knowledge, humor and flexibility. We will be telling others about Twin Cities Tours.
