We travel from Freeport – Patchogue.  Our second tour "East End Backstory" includes the Ponquogue Bridge in Hampton Bays and the Combs Decoy Shop at Hallockville. Our third tour is the Long Island Diversity Tour which explores Long Island's cultural diversity, from Hempstead to the Shinnecock Reservation. Our fourth tour is the North Shore Back Story tour, which explores the maritime culture of sites from Port Washington to Port Jefferson.
