My family and I learned a ton! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us engaged! There were a lot of places we wouldn’t have seen and a lot of background if we wouldn’t have done this tour!

Dre was a great guide. So knowledgeable. My friends and I loved the way he could just spew out the information. He took us to so many spots on DC that we would not have found on our own or even know to look for. We learned so much new stuff on this tour and it was worth every penny. The air conditioned bus: a nice addition because the outside temp was 90 degrees!

The tour ended at the African-American museum, not where it started at the Naval Plaza… This was a bad plan since we had to figure out to return to our vehicle… On a positive note, the Tour Guide was very informative…

Enlightening Tour
Julie_D
, Jun 2022
Lots on this tour to learn about history of African Americans in DC. Mr. Map is a terrific guide, especially as a DC native. His family’s history of struggles, triumphs and shenanigans added a lot. Wish there was less focus on history of buildings as such and more on history of people, culture, movements, etc. The tour included that, just wish the balance was shifted more towards later (hence 4 stars). The African American History Museum was world class. Loved the extensive exhibits on music and sports. Overall, the tour is worth the time and money.
