Jason was amazing! Friendly, informative, helpful, accommodating, funny, and kind. He went out of his way to make sure everyone received a fabulous tour and excellent customer service. He even ran through Union Station to (successfully) catch a young mom who left her phone on the trolley. We highly recommend this tour and especially recommend Jason to be your guide!

There were 5 of us ranging in age from 26 to 65. We all loved the tour. Our tour guide, Honest Abe, was wonderful and very informative. The tour was very fitting as we were in DC during the 4th of July Holiday. Even though the city was very crowded, the tour was very enjoyable and we were given ample time to visit each memorial -- our favorite was The Lincoln Memorial and Korean War memorial. This is a definite tour to do while in DC.

I did this alone with my 3 small children while on a trip to DC. We all enjoyed it. Even though it was raining we were provided ponchos. Mr History was our tour guide and it was absolutely wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and a very kind considerate person. This was the highlight of our trip. We were given ample time while off exploring. The bus made several stops and was always easy to find once we were ready to get back on. If you are in DC then this is a must do!! I will recommend this company and tour guide to anyone who is going to the area. Will definitely do again next time we are in the area!
