Our whole immediate family (4 kids, 5 adults), 3 generations ranging in age from 9-70 years, went on this tour and everyone had an amazing time! We live in Minneapolis but wanted to learn more about the history of Summit Ave. The kids loved hearing about how different times were back in the early 1900s (servants quarters, stables). The eldest among us who are considered history buffs, also learned new facts about people, places and architecture. Doug’s storytelling style is impeccable and his enthusiasm was equally matched with his knowledge of history. He was patient with the kids and all of the questions the adults asked. We will definitely book more experiences with Doug even though we live here because he is such a fantastic guide. Bravo!!

One thing for sure, Douglas knows and is deeply connected with this area. He has a strong passion to tell the stories of every corner of the streets and knows lots of neighbors personally. He also creates a welcoming atmosphere that encourages us to follow our curiosity and ask many questions. And we can always learn something whatever we asked.

Doug is an informative and engaging storyteller with all sorts of fascinating and unusual details about the homes on summit Ave and the people who built, bought and live/lived in them. Well worth the money for a history buff/anyone interested in St. Paul/ or summit Ave specifically.

Spending a couple hours with Douglas was time well spent. I’ve done at least ten walking architecture tours in different cities, and Douglas was top notch. He was on-time, well prepared, interesting, engaging and passionate about storytelling. Our group of five adults ages 25-54 from Minneapolis & Seattle all enjoyed the tour. Architecture, light history and being outside is something we all enjoy so this was perfect, especially as a covid-friendly activity. Next time we’re in town we look forward to doing another tour. See you in a couple months Douglas!
