    Our 10yr old son lives part-time in London and part-time in The States. I have always been a bit of a self-educated history buff but we decided the proper way to educate our 10yr old about DC was to hire a professional personal tour guide. Jennifer, our historian, was top shelf and the investment was well worth every penny. She knew so many facts, back stories and had such a great presentation style, that our 10yr old felt as if he was in a movie reliving history. Thanks, Jennifer!

    The tour guide was great! She kept it interesting and we all learned a lot. We set the pace and the guide was very flexible.
