Really enjoyed this history filled tour. Our guide Jonathan was both knowledgable and interesting which is a difficult combo to master.

Was a really jam packed trip . Great for those who have no time to see Washington DC. We went very quickly from place to place and it was over 100 degrees !! so hot dont go in July ! Guide was very informative and kept us all in line so we got everything done! I would have like longer at the Lincoln Memorial and less at the cemetery.
