Tour Guide Entertainer!
Tours led by Brian can take on an extremely “fun” feel. He is an amateur magician, sings opera, broadway, country, and rock, and does impersonations. While he will try not to inundate you with too much of the “lighter arts”, you just might be surprised. He has a great ability to incorporate just the right touch into historical and cultural meanderings through the tour’s landscape.
