Libby was an excellent, charming, and engaging guide. From the beginning her cheerful demeanor made up for the cold rainy weather. She was so informative, even challenging us with quizzes and regaling us with the back stories on different political figures. This tour made Washington DC accessible to me more than I could ever cover on my own and much more personal than a tour bus. Plus it was quite affordable.

Highly recommend! We had our 3 kids, ages 19, 15 & 11. He drove us around and gave us history on whatever we passed. He stopped and let us out at the FDR monument (which we loved), the MLK Jr monument, and the Lincoln Monument where we could also walk over to the Vietnam & Korean War monuments. We had ear pieces so we could hear him over the noise of traffic if it got loud.

Fantastic way to get oriented and see a lot in a short period of time. It would take you two days of walking to see everything we saw during the tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and really enhanced the tour with history and stories as we rode along.

Excelente excursión. Bien organizado. Estupendo guía. Muy recomendable.

Smooth transparent ride and well educated your guide.
