Testimonial from a Travel Writer
Thoroughly enjoyed your tour! Who was it they used to call "the hardest working man in show business?" I think it was somebody like Ed Sullivan...? But anyway, I think you've inherited that mantle.
Also, as one who has spent considerable time doing serious archival research for my books, I was really impressed with the level of your knowledge. You're going way, way beyond playing a role.
You'll definitely make it into my "weekend in Sonoma" article.

Testimonial from a Tourist from
Thank you so much for our walking tour of Sonoma, it was definitely a
highlight of our trip to Sonoma, which is saying something, given the
myriad delights of the area! You gave us the opportunity to better
appreciate so many of the factors which contributed to how Northern
California in general– and Sonoma in particular- became what it is
today, as well as a glimpse into the lives of fascinating historical
figures who were instrumental in making it all happen.
Your depth and breadth of knowledge of the history of the region is
truly impressive, and your storytelling talents made your stories do
more than come to life. They swaggered into town, demanded a whiskey,
and elbowed their way into our memories.
