    We had a great tour with Glynnce. We booked the small group tour but we were the only ones on the tour. She did a great job hitting the highlights of the museum and was extremely knowledgeable about the details. My son and husband were steady asking questions and she was on point. Great tour!

    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.

    Our guide, Rebecca, was great! We had been to the Air and Space years ago, and decided do a small group tour this time to find out about the things you can miss because you don't know what to look for. It was the best decision. She had a wealth of information and a true enthusiasm for the subject of planes and such. Since the museum is free, you can always go back on your own if you want to spend more time with some exhibits.

    Aaron was our personal small group guide. It turned out to be a private tour for my wife, myself, and 2 boys 11 and 13. It was terrific. Aaron was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He was well organized and made it enjoyable, especially for my boys. I think that if we went by ourselves, it would have been chaotic and not as educational. Big thumbs up.
