“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I've lived in the DC region for 5 years now, so when my Dad came down for another visit we wanted a tour that wasn't the basic tourist attractions. The Georgetown neighborhood tour with Dan King was exactly what we were looking for, and more! We not only got a great taste of history and architecture, but also a lot of laughs along the way. Dan was a natural storyteller and teacher, and truly loves the history of DC. We will definitely be doing these tours again!

“Awesome National Mall Tour”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I loved this tour because my tour guide, Dan King, was great. He did an awesome mix of history, architecture and humor. I had a great time, laughed and learned a lot :) This is a MUST when you are in DC. Furthermore, you received tips and useful information before actually starting the tour, as how to arrive, parking availability, etc. Just keep in mind that the tour actually lasts more than 2 hours as you still have to explore the Lincoln and the Korea War memorial by yourself after the official tour ends. Enjoy!

“Excellent tour”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

I did the all in one tour (major sites plus tidal basin, 4 hours) with Mia. As other mentioned the tour guide was knowledgeable and before we went into any one place she took time not only to give background to the place but also shared interesting tidbits and pointed out how best to enjoy sites. It was great for someone who had never been to Washington DC. Even though it was hot Mia kept us engaged. Wear comfortable shoes, bring a large bottle of water, and plenty of sunscreen especially if you'll be visiting in the summer... This was my first tours by foot and it won't be my last. Highly recommended.

“Great. Great. Great.”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This was one of the best tour experiences I've ever had. I had Kara as I tour guide and the way she gives you the information is incredible. It's funny, it's entertaining, you get to see a loooot, and (doesn't happen to me that often, even almost never...) I actually remember a lot of things from the tour! The group was a bit tired at the end and I'm afraid we didn't give a lot of response (I can imagine that's important for a guide.. sorry!), but she still managed to keep it interesting up to the very last point! You get to know things you wouldn't know on the regular tour, and again, the WAY she is doing it...
Whoever you are you would definitely enjoy it!
