  • Great tour guide! So much information given in an enjoyable way. Everyone enjoyed it from 6 years old to 44. The best of the three tours.
  • Toured Bonelli House March 28, 2018. Andy, my tour guide, provided concise information about the house, its furnishings, and the people who lived there. This tour is highly recommended for those interested in historical Kingman.
  • Interesting, nicely preserved home. Lots of family photos & history if you're into that. Worth the time.
  • Beautifully maintained old home. Thankfully, the city of Kingman has agreed to make this historical site available to the public and volunteers are willing to provide tours. It is a wonderful stop in Kingman AZ.
  • Great tour. Tour guides are very knowledgeable.
