Upcoming Walking Tours

Derby Tours of Saratoga is proud to announce that we will be offering walking tours of North Broadway each Saturday of the four upcoming holiday weekends.

Please join your guide Hollis Palmer for the tours which all begin at 2:00 PM in front of Crafter’s Gallery (427 Broadway). Each walking tour will take approximately two hours – please wear comfortable shoes.

100% of the money raised on the tours will be donated to a specific organization as follows:

May 28, 2016 Memorial Weekend Adopt a Soldier

July 2, 2016 July 4th Weekend Saratoga History Museum

Sept. 3, 2016 Labor Day Weekend Hospice

Oct. 8, 2016 Columbus Weekend Kelly’s Angels

Suggested donation is $10/person.

Please note, these are not architectural tours, but rather tours that tell the stories of the families who built these “Great Ladies.”
