“Awesome time”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Signed up for the DC All In One (NM + Tidal Basin) tour but we unfortunately could only stay for the National Monument portion. We had a very informative and fun tour guide, Chris, who is admittedly a history geek! He was fun and very interactive. Didn't realize how uninformed we were about US history. Took away a lot of info on Washington DC's history and symbolism and it was apparent that our guide took much pride in sharing it with us. Would definitely take this tour again (maybe the whole thing next time!) and would highly recommend to anyone traveling to DC.

“Lincoln Assassination tour with Erin - a must do!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

I made reservations for this tour but then we were so tired after our day we almost skipped it. I'm glad we didn't! I teach history and although I knew the majority of what we were told on this tour, our guide Erin was so amazing, that I was enraptured the whole time. My husband also thought it was great! She had a ton of info and obviously loves to lead this tour - she is a great speaker who knows how to keep her audience's attention. She answered a few extra questions that I had and even offered to take some of us to an additional stop behind Ford's Theatre. It was great to have all the places surrounding this event pointed out to us and with her vivid imagery you could almost imagine you were back to April 14, 1865.

If the other tours are half as good as this one, then it is a wonderful value. Make sure to take advantage of these while in DC! It was a bit over the 2 hour time but I was OK with that - it could have lasted 5 hours and I would have been happy. Just be aware when you are planning.

“Great experience”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We chose this company based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. We took the Arlington Tour and the Twilight National Mall tour. Both Chris and Becca were extremely knowledgeable and made the tours great experiences. I would recemmend this tour company to anyone visiting the city.

“perfect tour”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We took National Mall walking tour. Chris is brilliant guide keeping group focused not only with historical facts and insights but with proper jokes easy to follow even by non-americans. We enjoyed every minute of it, learned so much. Definately worth your time, pays off much more than just reading travel guide.

“We really like it”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Chris was our guide in the All in One tour, very nice guy, knows every aspect of every monument, very receptive to questions and with prompt answers. Walking pace was according to the expectation, and we only noticed we walked for 4 hours at the end. Thanks Chris. Walter and Cristina (Brazil)
