Well spent day!!! - We had an amazing experience! Dion was our tour guide and he was hilarious! We loved all his jokes about the number 13, as well as all of the unique history he had to share about DC. Tatum was amazing and helped us sort out a minor issue with our tour, and even ensured we were compensated for the inconvenience. We would absolutely recommend the tour for those who only have a short time in DC and want to see everything. My kids especially loved the archives and seeing the Declaration of Independence and Constitution up close. Had we not been with the tour we would not have made through the line to see them before they closed. We feel incredibly grateful for a well spent day. Thank you USA Guided Tours 🙌
