I just wanted to touch base with you concerning the tour we had with Mike and Joyce on Sunday Aug. 20. It was great. The weather was perfect. Joyce was quite informative and answered all of our questions without hesitation, and provided a great experience. Mike also gave us a few hints along the way. It was the type of tour we had hoped to experience as we went to a number of areas that we had not explored yet. We went back to a couple of places over the weekend and have made a list of the places we will visit next time we are in town.  I have already recommended this tour to a number of people including some friends who live in Cape May.
