- we highly recommend this tour. although we had previously lived in the dc area and had visited many of the sites on our own, there is no substitute for a guided tour to fully appreciate the background stories of each.. We cannot say enough good things about our guide Aaron, who clearly possesses a wealth of information on the city' s history and makes the tour a fun experience (even in December).
- Guide was exceptionally well informed and added humor to his interesting delivery. Would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys a historic review of the city.
- I booked this tour for my 78 year old Dad who is pretty mobile but gets disoriented with directions. He loved this tour! Both guides really zoomed in on the things he wanted to see and made the most of his time. Never did he feel like he was wandering on his own (which was my primary concern). This was my first time using this tour group but it won't be my last. Thanks for taking such good care of my Dad!
