    Nick was very knowledgeable about DC. Great tour. We learned so much. Perfect way to see DC and all of the sights

    We spent 4 hours hitting a lot of locations (Martin King Memorial, Frederick Douglas home-outside, African American Civil War Museum, etc.) and stopped for photos at White House and Capitol Bldg. Last stop dropped us at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where we were able to walk right in-no waiting. Our guide Dion was very knowledgeable and engaging. I would definitely recommend his tour. Learned so much and had a great time.

    After a bit of confusion as to the start time of this tour, we were on our way. Our guide, John, was fantastic. Had tremendous amount of knowledge to share. Could have easily spent more time with him. There was no reserved entry to the museum at this time of year, so perhaps the company should revise the title of the tour. All in all, worthwhile, would enjoy an even longer tour of African American history in DC. Also, company should provide guides with microphones to eliminate need for them to raise their voices to be heard in the van.

    The trip was terrific. We saw so much that prepared us for the museum. Guide was deeply knowledgeable about the history of DC and the African American community. I saw and learned more than I’d imagined. Recommended for all.

    Had to chase down an extremely rude driver Kenny, reconfirm payment for 20 minutes. Disastrous Day!!

    Wanted to see the African American Museum and thought this would be an easy way to get in and see DC. Well, it turned out to be so much more. Sandra our guide is a fountain of knowledge on the very important American History of Slavery and black history. I urge all Caucasians such as my friend and myself to join this tour to see DC and America in its true light. Loved seeing the MLK Memorial and hearing about the symbolism in the monument itself and more. ... DON'T MISS IT.

    This was the best history and city tour I have experienced in DC, It was worth the cost. The bus was comfortable and wwll air condition. The driver was friendly and knew his route. The tour guide was very impressive, friendly and knowlegeble about all aspects of the DC monuments, museums and lots of detailed history. And the greatest highlight of the tour was the amazing visits to the MLK monument, and the AfricanAmerican history museum that were heart wrenching and so much history.
    This Tour is Totally Awesome.
    Everyone should take this tour, its a must. You will be so enlightened on history that has been left out of school books.
    Awesome Tour.
