So fun!
Christine_B, Apr 2024
It was a lot of fun. Our tour guide was excellent! I can’t remember her name. We took the April 13th 3:00 tour. She was a history teacher in Lawrence. She was fabulous!
Great experience

It was fun to do...
Jacquie_R, Mar 2024
It was fun to do something different in the city. The guide was very nice, if the bars weren’t all right next to each more walking. Also, even though we enjoyed the experience thoroughly, it was a little expensive for what it was. I think the price should’ve been 60 that includes alcohol.
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and we're so happy that you enjoyed the tour. Our bars are close together so that it is more bar than crawl. This way guests of all physical capabilities can enjoy the tour. Please come crawl with us again soon. Cheers!

What a great time learning some history and having a drink! Thanks Paxton for hosting us during this rainy evening and even when others didn’t show up. We appreciated the hospitality and had a great experience! If you want to get some history in a fun way, I would highly recommend this pup crawl tour! Hopefully you’ll get matched with Paxton!
