Private Tours of Washington offers a fascinating, well-rounded insight into the intricacies of DC. Our group was able to experience the majestic beauty that Washington offers from an up-close lens thanks to the expert guidance of PTW. Bill was, without a doubt, one of the most communicative owners I have worked with, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the city and all it has to offer from him. Bill's passion for sharing his knowledge of DC is clear in how the entire organization operates. The flexibility in being able to choose the schedule, length, and destinations of interest made coordinating the tour quite simple. Our tour guide, Tony, was an expert on DC and its history. Our group was a combination of folks who were exploring the city for the first time, and some who had lived here for many years - everyone found the experience enjoyable and insightful. My hats off to the fantastic team at PTW for providing us with a terrific tour experience.

Thank you so much for arranging our tour for us- Tony was amazing! We had several older Tomb guards on the tour and they told me they had been on 3-4 tours before and this was the best one. They were really impressed with FDR and MLK because they hadn't seen them before. Again, thank you for all you did!

We took two tours with PTW. Tony and Bill were both so knowledgeable and friendly. We took a nighttime monument tour and a day tour! Bill can tailor your tour to suit your needs. I really can’t recommend them highly enough! We had two teenage boys and two moms in our group. We also loved our driver! We will definitely use PTW again, and we’ve told all of our family and friends about them! See you next time!

Tony and Bill were outstanding guides- extremely knowledgeable, flexible, enthusiastic and full of behind the scenes information. My 14 year old son (a tricky critic!) could not stop talking about Bill. He told me that he feels like he, “has a new insight into politics”. The tours were the highlight of the weekend & could not have been better! Tony & Bill get the highest rating! Thank you for making our trip to DC incredibly memorable. We hope to see you again next year! Anne & Oliver

We booked a three hour tour with PTW and asked that they build an itinerary a little off the beaten path - skip the Mall - show us things we wouldn't think to see. It was fabulous. Georgetown, National Cathedral, Embassy Row, Kalorama, Lafayette Park, Iwo Jima and Air Force Memorials and more. The guide (Tony) and drive (Sheik) were both very knowledgeable and easy to engage with. The time flew by. Best part of our long weekend in D.C. Would highly recommend!
