The Georgetown tour was very interesting. It was a great combination of history and architecture. The guide did a very good job of painting a picture of Georgetown throughout history. The group size was perfect - about 12 people. Anymore would have been too many....More

Walk of Georgetown,interesting, but spent too much time on its earliest history and left little time for the last 75 years, would have enjoyed a few more tidbits from our more recent history. Guide was well informed,spoke clearly.

You are so right that Georgetown in autumn is a showcase for first-rate Halloween decorations. It may be an elegant historic district, but those folks go all out for Halloween! Happy to hear that the festive and historic perspectives were to your liking. Thank you...More
