Right from our first contact with Bo, I was impressed. We were in DC during a time that there were no scheduled tours but after emailing Bo, we had a time and date set up for both a 4 hour Highlights Reel tour and a 2 1/2 hour Glitz, Glam and Gossip Tour especially for our family. He was incredibly... More

We had the most fabulous afternoon walking with Bo from DC Insiders. On advice from friends we undertook the Highlights tours which is by far and away the best way to see DC. Bo is an exceptional guide and the substance and depth of the commentary and stories surpasses anything you could get elsewhere. Time went quickly, and we covered... More

I meant to do this a long time ago as our trip was 8 months ago, but better late than never. This trip was awesome, just our group and one other made it very personal. Bo took extra time with us and we learned a lot. We only had 48 hrs in the city, and wanted to see as much... More

Bo is a born storyteller - his enthusiasm, vivacity and encyclopedia mind of knowledge made the tour captivating for the whole time - it was easy to forget the cold with his warm wit that brings the city to life and heightens your appreciation. There were children on our tour as well and he appealed to all ages involved. Such... More

My wife and I went on the Swamp and Swank Foggy Bottom at night, and it was incredible! We are from Florida and it was our first trip to DC, and Bo, the tour guide, made it a great trip. He is a very knowledgeable tour guide and a great storyteller. He took us behind the scenes with his stories,... More

We visited DC during Thanksgiving week. Our first tour was "From Swamp to Swank-Foggy Bottom/Monuments at Night" on Monday night which was so fantastic that we had to return on Wednesday nighty for "Ghosts, Scandals and Murder" which was a night tour in the Federal Triangle. Bo Stanton is a true historian and a wealth of knowledge. My wife, 16yo... More

Bo and Becca are so knowledgeable about the city and cater their tours to your requests! We had 4 people in our group and we mainly wanted to see saw all of the monuments but also learned some great little known facts about the city along the way. Can't imagine any better way to tour the city than with these... More

I did DC in a day tour on the 31st of October. 6.5 hours may sounds like a lot but it is a fantastic experience. Bo keeps you entertained and give you knowledge and insight in to Washington D.C that is well worth the time and the price. Starting in DuPont circle and finishing at the White house, there were...

Glitz & Glam of DuPont Circle & Georgetown was an excellent walking tour. Bo is definitely passionate and knowledgeable of DC! I would recommend this tour to everyone except maybe kids that get board easily or anyone not wanting to walk very far. However; for us, it was our favorite tour during our stay in DC! Thanks again Bo! Tammany
