HILDALE, Utah (AP) - Former members of a polygamous church are offering outsiders a guided tour with promises to answer questions about the history and traditions of the community.

Richard Holm and his brother Heber Holm are among those who are launching "The Polygamy Experience: A Guided Tour of Colorado City." The first tour is Saturday.

Colorado City, Ariz., and Hildale, Utah are twin towns controlled by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The four-hour tour will include accounts from those who have lived in the towns. Richard Holm was exiled from the FLDS faith in 2003 by church leader Warren Jeffs. Heber Holm left the community 35 years ago.

FLDS spokesman Willie Jessop says he hopes people won't get suckered into what he calls a scam.
