    Aaron was absolutely wonderful with us in this tour about the National Gallery. Very knowledgeable guy and nice to be with. He showed us unusual stuff inside of the Gallery and we've learned a lot . This is a very good way to start in Washington.

    We booked a semi private tour of the national Gallery but the three of us essentially had our own private tour with our guide. She was pleasant and patient and knowledgeable about art and sculpture and history. I learned a lot on this tour and I also would have gotten lost in this huge museum if it weren’t for the guide.

    Great experience. I called the evening before to see if it was possible to reschedule to a later time. They were able to accommodate us, texted info back, and generally took care of everything. Our guide, George, was friendly, really responded to our interests, did a great job explaining some interesting antidotes and had an engaging personality.
