Our first thing we did when we arrive was our pub crawl. Jessica was a great history buff. She talked about beer mixed in with history of DC. That was the best time for a beer tour. Definitely doing more tours with the team. She also said yo be adding more cities like New Orleans. Can’t wait to visit again with Jessica. She really knew her way around. We had a great time. Thanks Byron and Liz

Such a great tour in DC!! Jessica was an incredible guide that was extremely knowledgeable and by the end of the tour we felt like she was one of our friends. I had family in town that said this was the highlight of their trip while visiting us. Such a great experience that I would recommend to anyone who loves beer and history!

The other couple didn't show up so we ended up with a private tour. Jessica was great! Lots of interesting stories and historical info that I had never heard before. Best of all, we visited some GORGEOUS old bars that we never would have thought to visit otherwise. Definitely recommend!
