Brenda was very knowledgeable and a joy to be our guide. We tried to book a second tour of the Air and Space Museum with Brenda, but sadly she was booked.

Terrific experience. Get there early if you don’t have a timed pass, especially during busy travel season.

Very knowledgeable and made the tour a very interesting one to follow. Would recommend!
