Tony was a great host and guide. Well worth having someone so knowledgeable guide us. Had a youngster in our group and Tony did a great job keeping him interested. Thanks.

Richard was one of the best tour-guides we could have asked for! He connected with all of us via text the day before so that we had time to plan our meet-up and routes. He was clear about the expectations of the tour from the start and really put forth the effort to ensure everyone had a great experience at the museum. He was so knowledgable about each area of the museum and shared so many behind-the-scenes secrets about many of the items on display. There was no way you could avoid being truly engaged in the tour because of how interesting he made everything! We will definitely think of him again for our next trip to DC, thank you so much Richard for making our first Washington experience the best it could have been!

I thought I booked a group but evidentially booked a private tour. Boy was it worth it to have a personal tour guide. Meghan was a complete delight! She catered to the things I was interested in as well as provided so much information and history of many of the exhibits. She was entertaining and patiently answered every question I had. Although it is impossible to see every area of the museum in 2 hours, I still feel that Meghan provided a vast amount of information and a variety of interesting tidbits. After the tour was completed, I was free to explore on my own and felt better oriented having been through the majority of the museum with Meghan.

Rebecca was a wonderful guide, who has studied the museums in which she guides. Informative, funny, flexible, and weaves her information through many stories. Our kind of guide. Perfect.
