A nostalgic return

Great Falls on the Potomac has been the highlight of our trip It’s the first time I have been there since 1942 when I was very young and also visited the torpedo factory where my dad worked during WW II. TOM’s knowledge of everything was very impressive . A great guide
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Larry and Sandy, Thank you for the kind review. I had not ever been to Great Falls with a client so that attraction was a treat for me as well. We were fortunate that there was that much water over the falls given the season. The torpedo factory is one of my favorite hidden gems and I’m glad to have finally found a client who remembers its operations during the war. I’m glad to have spent the afternoon with you both. Tom

Very knowledgeable and accommodating. Made our trip to DC memorable. Helped find parking close to monuments so we did not have to walk far.

Tonia, Thank you again for sharing your family with me during your trip to DC. We certainly got to see a lot during our day. Send me your email address so that I can share the video of your ‘interview’ of Dr Hayden at the Library if Congress. Tom

Amazing tour

Having not been to Washington DC for many years we decided to book a private tour to make the most of our limited time in this great city. Booking Tom and his amazing tour was the best thing we could have done. Tom picked us up at our hotel and took us on a day long tour of everything we wanted to see and more. His knowledge of the history of each memorial on The Mall and the area was just outstanding. He made each stop come to life. So much to see and too little time. Thanks Tom for a wonderful tour and all your kindness.

Best Experience ever!

Tom was so knowledgeable, helpful, and quick in seizing opportunities to provide additional unforgettable experiences. Our 94 year old WWII Iwo Jima survivor friend with us was treated royally and respectfully. Evening tour of Arlington Cemetery and monuments including an inspiring military band parade and marine rifle precision drill performance. Amazing. Tom felt like a dear and respected friend by night’s end.

Our guide, Tom Schultz, was a navy...

Our guide, Tom Schultz, was a navy veteran with 20 years of active service. As such, he could answer all of the questions my son had with regards to military tradition, history and up-to-date explanation on military technology. As can be imagined, my son was thrilled, excited and focused throughout five hour tour - which would not have been the case had we visited the sites on our own. We visited Marine Corps memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Navy Yard and Navy Museum. At Arlington we had a chance to watch changing of guards, which was quite impressive and even encountered a full honor funeral. Navy museum was small but very informative, exhibits encompassing almost all of the wars US navy has fought to date. We had an opportunity to eat with servicemen and visit official uniform shop. It was certainly very authentic and memorable tour. Would highly recommend it to families with boys or military history buffs.
