Great walking tour of Georgetown - Ugo was an excellent tour guide. Very informative. Saw a lot of Georgetown, old and new. He arrived early and walked at our pace. There were 4 of us on the tour.

Tour of Georgetown with Stephen - Stephen was an excellent guide. He was very entertaining and knowledgeable. We loved his British accent. Highpoints were the Old Stone House, Martin's Tavern where JFK proposed to Jackie, and the Exorcist Stairs (which my husband climbed). We highly recommend this tour!
