Sooner Steve was our driver/guide he did a phenomenal job. He was knowledgeable and his passion for the history of DC was expressed through his narrative. I was on the trip with my mother and my two kids 3 and 8. He kept everyone interested. He also went out of his way to help us. I would definitely do the tour again when in DC.

Best company every! With the shut down of the DC sites looming while we were in DC, I contacted the company to ask to reschedule our tour from 3/15 to 3/12. We had 2 trolleys reserved for 56 people. Much to my delight, they were really accommodating! They made this happen and it was the highlight of our trip! Thank you to our drivers Honest Abe and Sooner Steve. Everyone on our tour enjoyed the sights! You both made this the best trip for our students. Thank you so much!

Our tour guide Ellie was excellent, Informative and captivating on the history of all the sites we viewed. The problem was the trolley. Unfortunately, the windows were covered (Seasonal thing), with thick plastic and all views out Of the windows were distorted with sites barely recognizable. Thank goodness the trolley stopped several times for actual photo ops. Highly recommend this tour during warmer weather when the plastic comes off...not so much during the winter months.
