    Good tour, but there were not many historical facts and about Washington buildings and memorials. How downtown was transformed in 20th century and when main federal buildings were built. Please, include Thomas Jefferson Memorial in 3 hour tour!!! Needed to see Thomas Jefferson memorial closer, not from other side of the lake.

    Cassie was a an energetic tour guide, engaging her customers in questions and answers. She truly appears to love what she does. It is amazing her historical knowledge and compassion. Cassie willingly made sure to help everyone take memorable photos at each stop. Kris was our excellent driver, helping with a wheelchair at every stop for a customer, ensuring we were drinking plenty of water in our 92 degree tour day. It also was very wonderful to get back on the air conditioned bus after each stop.

    The tour was perfect. The torture guide, Tyrone, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and had many unique facts to share. He was funny. My three children (ages 5, 13, and 15)and I were all very impressed. He even captured wonderful family pictures at multiple landmarks. 10 out of 10 would recommend! Being offered bottled water was a plus!
