    Our tour guide Rebecca was awesome! She added so many details to the tour that we didn't know. She was very courteous and answered questions. She met us at the museum and added many extras.

    We had 2 different tour guides. Donna for the Smithsonian Air and Space museum and Jennifer for the Smithsonian American History museum. Donna was wonderful and informative and really nice... even with the pouring down rain after our tour.... Then, Jennifer was so nice and she adapted to the problems we had getting to the museum.. she was so informative and really nice too. Both were just first class ladies that were so nice to be with. We wish we had more time, We would recommend both to anyone.
