    Overall great tour, very informative. The description says to bring headphones, but it does not specify that the headphones are only for translation from English to Spanish or Mung.

    Christopher and Ali were our guide and driver… they were awesome! They really knew their stuff! Christopher was so patient with those of us that were older & slower. Ali always had the bus right where it was supposed to be and very punctual. That was much appreciated. We also loved the boat ride. My only suggestion would be that as we sign up for this tour, from the description I was under the impression that lunch was included in the price of the tour. Maybe you could change the verbiage a bit. Thank you for a lovely day in our nations capital! Sucerey, Lori Strasburger

    Tour started late because we were waiting for two people who did not get the update on new meeting place. Lots of bike issues for others on the tour.
