Join Us On Any of our Tours

Our tours are always changing with new stories and new venues to visit.  If you haven't taken a tour, come join us.  If you have taken a tour, come back again, as the story is always engaging and evolving! 

Schedule a Private Tour!

   Any of our regularly scheduled tours can be chosen for a private tour for a minimum of 6 people. If you want a more general city sampler tour, we can put that together too.

We will work with you to customize and make it special.  




We limit the walking tours to maximum of 20 guests. If there are more, we can add another guide and split the group into two tours to accommodate 40. If the group is more than 40, we can add a third guide to accommodate up to 60.  Contact us for your next group outing, party, or just for fun!   


Step-on bus guides are also available.  CynCity also hosts speaking engagements and virtual tours for groups and educational purpose.  Contact us for more information.
