Our tour was great. Smokey was our tour guide and he made the trip worthwhile. His knowledge of all things DC, and his personal flair with delivering facts and anecdotes went above and beyond. Our driver, Patrice was skilled and considerate. We had a baby with a stroller, a 6 year old, two parents and two grandparents in our group. This tour was well suited to all of us. I would highly recommend this tour company and in particular our dynamic duo driver and tour guide.

This tour was excellent. Five stars for our tour guide Smokey. The bus was comfortable and cool. We had enough time to get out and walk the around the monuments. Smoky’s walking tour commentary around the monuments was also excellent. We went at night and enjoyed seeing everything in the lights.

We had an amazing tour with Osei as our Driver and Smokey as our Guide. Smokey was extremely knowledgeable about the DC monuments and history, and he made it a ton of fun. He’s a great singer too!
