    We took Air and Space Museum tour with guide Terry Gish - it was GREAT! We would highly recommend. It can be a little overwhelming at the museums, there is so much information. It is worth having someone tell you the background on some of the displays, information that you would not be able to read off the display signs. Terry was so knowledgeable and nice. My husband is an engineer and had lots of questions, Terry was terrific in answering them and giving lots of important history. If we get back to DC we will surely book through this company again, and would hope that Terry G was available.

    Babylon handled my tour request very professionally. Originally I booked a small group tour of the Air & Space Museum. They notified me a few days before my trip that they had to cancel due to a lack of other tour guests. When I contacted Babylon about alternatives, they quickly arranged a private tour for me and while the cost was higher than small group, I felt it was still very reasonable and I appreciated their quick response.

    Matilda was early, very knowledgeable and able to customize the tour to our interests. The best was to see such a big, crowded museum.
