Our tour guide Christopher was as entertaining as he was informative. He presented usually boring dates and faces in an engaging manor that kept your interest. We were able to see many landmarks that we being older would not have been able to walk. We are so glad we took this tour

This was a perfect tour! Our tour guide Christopher set the tone for an interesting, personal, energizing, informative tour - he had just the right amount of knowledge, inside stories, humor and patience to make the entire day, though long, enjoyable! We saw every major site, had enough time to walk around, take pictures, ask questions. Had a lovely lunch in Georgetown and an informative boat ride on the Potomac. We were a varied group from a wonderful 2 year old to several of us over 75 folks and we all felt comfortable on this tour. The fact that it was a perfect day in DC- low humidity, sunny and warm- and it was early September with few crowds was also wonderful but I think it was the knowledge that Christopher gave us that made the tour outstanding. My favorite site, among many favorites, was the Franklin Roosevelt monument- a series of 7 rooms, outdoor, generated from natural elements to signify the specific tone of the country during his terms in office. All of them were moving and punctuated by amazing quotations that I was not always familiar with- really stunning. Could go on and on but would mainly say that this was the perfect was to start our five days in DC! Thank you!
