I feel so fortunate to have found Historic Tours of Texas. I was looking for something special to celebrate my husband's birthday. He loves history and it's been difficult to visit museums with our two small children. I was a little uncertain about how the tours could work out for us but Robin saved the day! She was extremely helpful from the first communication (I wish I had reached out sooner) and went right to work, creating a private 4-hour tour of Huntsville for our family. We were delighted and surprised at all of the little details and extra measures taken to make sure we were comfortable on the tour and our kids were entertained. Dr. Crimm is a wealth of information and was a wonderful, friendly guide. It was a perfect day and I can't thank them enough! We can't wait to return for another tour - I want to do them all! Jenny

This was a phenomenal field trip. Robin was very nice and helpful and our guide tour, Dr. Crimm, is very knowledgeable. She was able to explain history in such an interesting way. I feel the spots we visited are underated and thanks to this trip I was able to see it. 100% recomendable.

Carolina is amazing! On top of her fantastic tours, she is a wonderful speaker. Her passion and knowledge keeps you captivated as she takes you on a journey back in time. Carolina has been speaking at my work, Carriage Inn Huntsville, for a few years now, and she packs the room every time she presents. If you haven't taken a tour or listened to her speak, you should.

Dr. Caroline Crimm does a fantastic job! She is a wealth of information and has a way of imparting her knowledge that is both interesting and entertaining. If you don't take one of her tours (or a dozen) then you are missing out!
