Sally was an amazing tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, interactive and had a great personality. She included everyone in the discussions on our small tour and just knew so much about a variety of things. The tour was absolutely BEAUTIFUL at night, moving and it was a great way to beat the crowds. Chris was a great driver and very friendly offering water.

We were a group of 27 from an East Texas high school. Our tour guide, Sally, was excellent. She arranged to pick us up at our hotel, which was more than we expected. Her knowledge of the Washington D. C. area was extensive. She seemed to know something about every location we passed, even places that are not on any typical list of sites for the area. Her young son was with her, and he was also obviously knowledgeable about the sites we visited. Everyone enjoyed the tour, some commenting that it was the highlight of our week-long visit to Washington. The three hours seemed to pass quickly, but we saw and learned a lot. Some of our group were inspired to revisit some of the sites on their own the next day.

Cassie does a great job explaining the history and the art behind each memorial. You get plenty of time to take pictures at each site.
