With the Lincoln Assassination Tour, guide Becca gives a whirlwind tour of President Lincoln's final days, setting the stage for one of the most important and tragic moments in American history. Filled with anecdotes and surprising facts about the various people involved, I found myself carried away by the encyclopedic knowledge and passion for storytelling of the guide. I enjoyed... More

This tour was the highlight of our DC trip! Dan King was passionate and knowledgeable – even in single digit temps AND a 20 minute blizzard! Would love to have had more time and places to see with him. A great teacher and speaker!

Carolyn M was a wonderful guide for the Lincoln Assassination Tour! Her love of the subject really shone through and she had great tidbits that even I, a history teacher, had not heard before. It was cold and sloppy out, but Carolyn kept us moving and didn't let the weather get in the way of her tour. I highly recommend!

After 3 days visiting DC on a freezing February weekend, our Lincoln Assassination Tour guided by Becca is definitely one of our best memories. In two hours Becca did such a great job that we not only forgot about the fact that we were freezing on the spot or had spent the entire day walking and sight seeing. So much... More

We went on the Arlington cemetery walking tour on a FREEZING Saturday. Dave did a great job of keeping our 16,12, and 11 year olds attention. We would definitely recommend him to anyone who plans a trip to dc

We arranged a private tour of the Monuments in the Mall last December. (Scheduled tours not offered so regularly in the winter). We had a really informative guide, Mathilda, and enjoyed the morning walking around the monuments and getting the commentary to understand the significance of them all. This really suited our group of me, my mum (70+ years) and... More

Wow, I walked around the city so much, to the point my feet hurt like crazy. Well you get to see DC and you get your exercise in.

Just getting around to writing this review, sorry! We went on the walking tour of Arlington Cemetery in June and loved every minute of it! Chris, our guide was so interesting to listen to, telling us loads of interesting facts but without overloading us. There was time to stop and look at things on the way, including the graves of...
