Marcia, Thank you for your kind review. I'm so glad the four of you finally made it to Washington. We were fortunate with the weather and lack of crowds. Don't let so much time go by until your next trip. Let's plan together early for your return to DC. - Tom

Fantastic experience! Tom is extremely knowledgeable and gave us in-depth information on each site we visited. Given the various site closures because of the virus restrictions, his expertise was particularly helpful. He really went above and beyond and provided an enjoyable, tailored experience based on our preferences. Highly recommend!

Tom was absolutely amazing, completely catered/scheduled our tour based on what we were interested in seeing and weather conditions and had some awesome recommendations along the way. Tom kept it very interesting for the kids by keeping them engaged with age appropriate questions, stories, and interesting facts. He was able to answer all of our completely random questions along the way. Tom’s passion for American History is evident and made it fun for all. Tom also had many awesome suggestions for photo ops along the way, and was able to capture some amazing family pictures for us. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

We enjoyed this tour that primarily touched on interesting historical notes of people involved in naval operations in the DC area, including their impact abroad. Many fun and informational experiences as we visited the different points of interest. Finishing up at the Navy Yard was good for the kids, giving them a chance to run around, climb, and play.
