Q&A with Hillary Marzec, Owner and Tour Guide
What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?
The quality of my tours. I know from several years of experience, being told by [hundreds] of people (meeting thousands of people each season), that my way of organizing and delivering information is not only very engaging, entertaining, and interesting, but also -- and this is important for me as a former teacher -- very graspable and memorable for all ages. I'm very good at making information interesting to any "students," young to old.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
[I have a] passion for this subject and for teaching about this subject, and entertaining people in the process. People should learn, but enjoy it so much, the learning happens almost subconsciously.
