She is such an amazing person, I moved here almost 2 years ago, however, without her I still won’t know many of those antique/Boutique store with such long historic story. She is kind, passionate, loving person who enjoy people and what she does. I will Definitely love to see her again for any kind of services she offers. Although, I lived in Bay Area for 2 years, I’d still love to have an local, professional to show me around. Good job Connie! Please treat her well with respect, cause i really can see she dose it for love and passion. Cheers Jing

It's an experience exceeding my expectation. Connie is profesional and friendly. This is not my first trip to the area, but everything Connie shared are fresh for me. It's really interesting, far more than walking and enjoying the food. I'd love to join Connie for her other activities in the future.

I really enjoyed the tour at the end of it I felt like I knew the entire Palo Alto. Connie was wonderful and patience she knew the city but most of all her choice of restaurant was fablous and could fit any person from anywhere. The highlight of the tour for me was the birth home of HP, the El Palo Alto tree, Gregory Paintings and to top it all off the water cow Ice cream best ice cream in the whole world. I would recommend this tour to anyone

Connie provides a fun easy going atmosphere which works well with Palo Alto. We walked all around town learning about the different start ups, and Venture Capitalists, while sampling tasty food. She was easy to talk to, and answered our questions. It was like being taken around by a friend than by a guide. Thanks!
