Must do. - Fantastic tour. Natiana and Maggie were incredible. Natiana was full of knowledge, history, character and a joyful, bubbling personality. Of all the tours we have taken in our vacations in the world, she ranks in the top 2. We would take any tour with her as our guide. We only had two days in DC and we feel like we got to see most of it. Definitely worth the money.

Great guide and tour - Tour guide made a big difference, he was informative, had good, interesting stories, and we learned a lot, but also he did not overdo it. Great way to spend the day. His last name was Sullivan "Sully", can somebody advise what his first name is so we can request him in the future?

Good Tour ! - Boat ride was excellent. Staff was very good and accommodating. However, they didn't have any bottled water until the last half hour. The weather was warm and there was lots of walking. We were able to buy water and other drinks at few stops.
