We were a group of 27 from an East Texas high school. Our tour guide, Sally, was excellent. She arranged to pick us up at our hotel, which was more than we expected. Her knowledge of the Washington D. C. area was extensive. She seemed to know something about every location we passed, even places that are not on any typical list of sites for the area. Her young son was with her, and he was also obviously knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Everyone enjoyed the tour, some commenting that it was the highlight of our week-long visit to Washington. The three hours seemed to pass quickly, but we saw and learned a lot. Some of our group were inspired to revisit some of the sites on their own the next day.

The tour itself was fantastic and our guide, Cassie, was very knowledgeable. We were very disappointed that we were not picked up at our hotel as promised. We had to Uber at the last minute which was stressful and costly. Sadly, Sally at the office did not pass along the message to the driver to pick us up, nor did anyone pick up the phone when we called to inquire about it.

Sally was an amazing tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, interactive and had a great personality. She included everyone in the discussions on our small tour and just knew so much about a variety of things. The tour was absolutely BEAUTIFUL at night, moving and it was a great way to beat the crowds. Chris was a great driver and very friendly offering water.

I would have been rated 5 stars if only we completed 8hrs as detailed when i booked it. We started on time but we ended 2 hrs early. I know its raining at that time but we took this tour for us to make memories like taking photos. Much appreciated Of course for the history provided. Worth the money we paid.

Our tour guide, Sally, was exceptional. She had a wealth of information about all the sites, and drove safely despite heavy rain. I highly recommend her to any visitors to D.C.
