The tour guide was terrific. Very personable and friendly. The bars we visited were great. My only knock was that it would have been nice had there been reservations at the first two spots.

I've never done a cocktail tour before and Guergana was an excellent guide. She had knowledge about DC history and about cocktails. She was very good about recommendations and we were treated like VIPs when we entered the various bars we went into. Another guest was celebrating a birthday and Guergana went out of her way to make the evening special. She was a great host and I hope to take another tour with her again! Thanks Guergana!
