John our tour guide was excellent, he should have been a history teacher. I learned so much about our country. Khalil was our driver and did a fantastic job. This is the best tour in DC. Well worth the money

This tour was excellent! Chris is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The tour is long enough to be well worth the money, but felt quick because of everything we got to see. I highly recommend Chris as a tour guide, he knows his facts and is very funny. Thank you!
