Það sem verður gert

On this tour, I intend to tell it all, the good, the bad, the sacred & the secret. Although a very well organized city, the good stuff lies just beyond the patina. Did you know SLC has underground walkways? They do...and we will talk more about those on the tour.

The Tour:
- Meet up: Impact Hub (150 State St. SLC, UT) Home to Utah's first brothel. We will then walk one block to Regent Street or nicknamed "Pig Alley" the original home of Chinatown.

- Next: Temple Square (two blocks North of Regent) here we will discuss The Mormon's exile from The United States, why Brigham Young decided on Utah ( then Mexican Territory), the Masonic symbols on the temple and the secret of its insides.

- Then: Brigham Young's wives quarters & Eagle Gate, which marked the entrance to his grand estate. Here we will discuss Brigham Young path to becoming one of America's few Millionaire, the church's current financial situation & its current political power in the state.

End: Alta Club ( a half block walk) private men's club frequented by Utah politicians.


Other things to note:
If it is winter, bring what you need to stay warm ( jacket, hat, gloves, etc ) This tour is very walkable, flat, no hills and has no limited access.

Hi, my name is Brooks Forster. Few it be that leave the Mormon church and actually share the nuances of this, the only American religion, with those on the outside. You could always stop by and listen to the Mormon missionaries tell the churches story but you'll likely find it one sided.

Once a devout Mormon, I am intimately familiar the faith, devotion & secrets Mormonism requires of its followers. I will with enthusiasm share with you the full Mormon story-including the side you may never otherwise hear.

Staðsetning

We will dip into the small walkways and off-the-beaten-path buildings near the very popular Temple Square but who are typically overlooked by unaware visitors - which are the very best parts of Salt Lake City.

We had a great time on our tour with Brooks. His inside knowledge of the city and its roots, insights and candor made it an eye-opening experience. Definitely recommend!

Brooks gave a personal yet balanced walking tour on a subject which units some, divides others, and is simply unknown to most. He also presents the material within an educational historical & geographical context. He does this efficiently and with enthusiasm. We asked him to incorporate the Tabernacle into our tour so could hear the famous organ and he willingly agreed. He is an engaging personality who is receptive to questions. His tour is an excellent value. I would advise participants to prepare appropriately for any weather conditions they could expect as it's an outdoor experience.

Great tour! Brooks took us to places we would not have gone otherwise. He was very friendly, easy to get along with, and open to answer all of our questions. I recommend taking this tour if you want to learn more about Mormon and Utah history from a unique and personalized perspective.

20 stars!! Hands down the best "experience" I've had on AirBnB. SIGN UP NOW! David and Brooks were FAAAANTASTIC! This is EXACTLY what travelers seek - the absolute real deal......insanely knowledgeable (and David even speaks Portuguese too!), incredibly well-spoken, charismatic and entertaining, these two true locals went under-the-skin on these topics that I've been so curious about. I've spent so much time in the last 24 reflecting on what I learned yesterday, the insights I gleaned, the depth of philosophical understanding that I gained into Mormonism. Gems like David and Brooks are exactly what those looking for a quality "experience" will really, really appreciate. MIND FLIPPIN BLOWN! GREAT job guys!

Brooks knows a lot about LDS and is enthusiastic about sharing. He was engaging and articulate. If you're interested in learning more about Mormonism and how it has played out in Utah, this is a great tour.

Brooks was super friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable about the topic. He provided a perspective that we could not have gotten on a more "traditional" tour and offered us ample opportunities to ask questions about the church in general and about his personal experience. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
