2016 Summer Walking Tour Series - Participant Survey

Thank you very much for taking a few moments to take our survey! We want to know how we're doing, what we can do to improve, and what other tours you might like us to offer.

If you took a tour, we'll enter you in the summer ending raffle for a gift card to the Kitchen at Billings Forge, but please don't feel obligated to give us your name and e-mail address if you aren't so inclined.

Survey results will be shared with Aetna and The Hartford, but none of the answers will be associated with you. We will keep your name and contact information to let you know if you won the raffle and if you want to be contacted about future tours. Any personally identifiable information will be scrubbed from the results, and your answers will be strictly private in that regard.
