A great 3 hours. Tony shared his wealth of knowledge & pitched the tour just right for our family of 5, incl 3 teenagers. A chance to get out at the major landmarks ( White House, Capitol Hill, Lincoln memorial, AirForce memorial overlooking the Pentagon). Areas we would never have discovered on our own. This is a BIG city so not walking miles was good!

Our tour guide, John, made this an exciting experience for all of us - 2 adults and 3 children aged 17, 13 and 10. We did a four hour day tour and our guide made every minute of it enjoyable and a great learning experience.

What an amazing experience with Tony! He was very informative and our group of eight all voted him our favorite person in DC and the tour one of our best activities while visiting the city. We actually started out on the wrong itinerary due to a miscommunication but after advising Tony he corrected it immediately - could not have asked for a better evening. Thanks so much and we will definitely be seeing you on a future trip!

Our tour guide really made this experience exciting for the adults and the children on the tour. We did a night tour and a day time tour where Gil made sure to present the information that was both quick and easy to understand---even for our 8 yo! We did 3 hours at night and 5 during the day. I recommended doing at least 4-5 hours as 3 hours would only give a drop of seeing DC. Gil is so knowledgeable about the history of our country and the DC area. We could have spent a week learning information with him on tour. We will request Gil the next time.

The company really tailored our tour around the monuments we had on our "must-see" list and offered suggestions of a great and exciting itinerary. You obviously can't see DC in a week, so we will be using Bill, Gil and the team at PTW on our next venture to DC!

Thanks for a great experience!

If you want to treat yourself to a first class tour of DC, these folks are the people to take you. We decided to do a private tour rather than using one of the bus tours or trying to do it on our own. Quite simply, we could not have been more pleased or impressed. Bill and Lena worked with us prior to our visit to ensure we were going to see everything we requested and more. We did 2 tours, the first an evening tour of the city and monuments. The second, a daytime tour of museums and so much more. Gil was simply fantastic! He is so enjoyable to listen to and as I've read previous reviews, it was funny to see other people touring the same places we did come over and basically join our private tour because Gil has so much knowledge. I could go on and on with gushing details of the volume of the ground and sights we covered, about the depth of Gil's knowledge, about the fact that having a driver as well as Gil to take care of us but the bottom line is, if you can do it you will know it was the best decision you made in Washington DC. These folks are professional...PERIOD!
