Very comfy ride. The person that gave the tour was very knowledgeable about Washington DC overall. After that tour me and my kids decided that we will revisit Washington DC again, because we had learn so much more on the tour and want to visit the places we learned about.

We boarded the wrong bus and no one checked or asked or said “this is the Blank tour.” We were an hour in before we realized it. The tour we took was very good but I can’t rate the african American tour.

The tour guide, Mr. Map as he referred to himself, was fun, energetic and a wealth of knowledge. He engaged my group of students( cadets) and they were delighted. He is a true asset to your company.

We bought the tour and we were called around 10:30 pm the night before and said they had bus trouble- we were able to get the passes via email. We arrived and went through the museum on our own ( which we could have done on our own anyway). I will be requesting a refund.

Our tour guide was wonderful but it was too long. The tour started at 10 am and ended at 4. This was too long for a family with kids. Very disappointed that we only got 1 hour at the museum. I do not recommend.

Awesome experience! I took my parents, who are slightly limited in mobility, and they had a great time. I'd been to DC several times, seen monuments, but never heard the history. Moderator was great! Be sure to eat a good breakfast because the cafe in the museum isn't open.

Mr. “Map” was great! Very informative and fun tour. My teenagers were engaged and the tour guide answered all of their many questions. I heard stories I never knew about, and we got the knowledge of a life-long DC resident. Highly recommend.
