“Great Tour of DC!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I was in town for a wedding and had a few hours to tour around DC. Bo was a great guide! He was excited to be leading us around his city and sharing little known pieces of history. It was clear that Bo put a lot of time and effort in making his tour stand apart from other available options. Walking a city is a great way to get to really know it and if you are in DC, check out the city with Bo, you will not be be disappointed.

“Great for all ages!”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We took the 6 hour tour with our 10 and 12 year old sons. Bo held our attention all afternoon and we learned a ton! He's a very well read, naturally curious person, doing something that he loves! If he doesn't know the answer to something he'll research it and get back to you with the answer. He gave us great tips for the remainder of our visit as well. I fully expect that his tour will continue to rise on the trip advisor rating scale as more people discover it (It has already gone from 11 to 7 in the last 2 months). I would choose this intimate experience (it was just the 4 of us most of the day) over ANY of the other tours that we encountered today.

“Awesome Tour!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I went on this tour at the end of April 2013. It was a blast! Lots
of history but presented in a very fun & interesting way. Bo is a very
passionate and well read tour guide. If you do one thing in DC -
take a tour with Bo!

“Great Intro to our Capital”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you are a first time visitor or just need a re-orientation to DC, Bo's tour is the way to go. This is no bus tour where you shuffle in and out and have no personal interaction with your guide. This is a small group (only 4 in our tour) lead by a very personable and knowledge local guide who has done his homework and is a fountain of knowledge on both the big picture and interesting facts and trivia you won't get from the bigger tours. Make sure you bring good walking shoes and appropriate clothing for the time of the year. The day walking tour covers lots of ground and after about 6 hours you will be ready for a well deserved stop in one of the local pubs that Bo will be happy to point out. This tour really wetted my appetite to come back to DC and spend much more time digging into the remarkable history of our capital.

“Perfect for those who don't want to sit on a bus with retirees”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I did the DC in a Day: The Insider tour and it was great! Bo had tons of great sites to see all over the city and passion for what he was talking about. The tours goes all over DC so be prepared to walk. We stopped at a great place in Foggy Bottom to grab a bit and drinks and then continued on. We highly recommend Bo and his DC Insider Tour.
