On Saturday, November 8th, Maureen Kavanaugh, whose walking tours have been featured on Channel 9's (KETC-TV) "Living St. Louis," will be narrating a bus tour of Old Saint Louis -- traveling the perimeters and inroads of the French Creole Village and telling stories of the merchants, Indians and colonials who seeded the St. Louis community. Maureen's passion for the city of St. Louis is infectious, and she guarantees that you will learn things about this Gateway to the West that you have never heard before - even if you have lived here all of your life. This tour is designed exclusively by Maureen Kavanaugh and offered by no other tour guide. You may visit her website for testimonials and descriptions of the tours she offers at:

This will be a "step off" bus tour on a chartered Trailways Coach. The bus will pick up at 10 a.m. at Francis Park (allowing ample street parking for participants) on the corner of Nottingham and Tamm in South St. Louis, with departure at 10:10 a.m. There will be a break for lunch at Soda Fountain Square in Lafayette Square, and the group will be returned to Francis Park by 3 p.m.

The cost for the tour, including bus transport, is $35 per person (the cost of lunch is not included). Call Maureen at 314-368-8818 or email her at for additional information or to reserve a place on the bus. Seating is limited to 57 passengers and reservations will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The deadline for reservations and payment by check is Thursday, October 23rd.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone on your email list who you think might be interested in the tour. Thank you!
