Guide Services - Available year-round
Let's be honest here, Springfield is not so large that people can't get around to the sites on their own. So why then hire a guide?
With our guide service you'll save time trying to figure out the map and the streets of Springfield so you can maximize your valuable vacation time visiting the sites. Your guide will also greatly enhance your visit with extra stories and commentary beyond what you'll be told inside the sites. There's Lincoln history or a story to tell on every street corner and sidewalk in Old Town Springfield. The history will come alive and your guide will make your visit to Springfield a very personal and moving experience for you so that you leave us with a deeper understanding and elevated appreciation of Lincoln life. Also with a guide you'll receive all kinds of useful local information for the best eating and shopping places in town. And we'll deliver all this with hometown hospitality. We've been known to take our clients to pharmacies and Wal-Mart for needs!
