What are others saying about the Big Oak Tour?

"My daughter and I went on the Big Oak Tour this morning, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! I've lived in Thomasville all of my life, and learned things about our beautiful city that I never knew. Joy really brought the 1880's to life with her costume and vibrant stories of the homes we visited. I recommend her tours to newcomers, visitors, and residents alike. You will not walk away disappointed! I'm looking forward to the Dawson Street Delights tour!"- M.J. McNeil

"Top notch! Worth every penny!"-H. Bessinger

"Thank you so much for the walking tour in Thomasville on Saturday. You made the town come alive with the stories you shared, and we talked about it all the way home after lunch at Jonah's. I will surely share this information with friends and hope you get some other tours because of this. You were delightful!!"-- D. Roorda
