Professional, Friendly and very personalized - Dawn the Tour Guide is everything a tour guide should be! Her friendly yet professional disposition sets the stage for a great tour! She offers a ton of information in a fun and interesting way. Her tours allow flexibility and a real personal feel. She allows her audience to shape the tour. She wants it to be YOUR tour. I highly recommend taking the opportunity to explore the DC area with Dawn!!

A Dumpster Fire / Probably a SCAM - This is either a scam or very mismanaged and absolutely no communication outside of some auto-emails. The host never made any contact with me after numerous calls/text to confirm. This is a private tour and i just wanted to confirm by more than canned email before making the 3 hour trip to the location. I was worried about getting there and no one was there to meet my group. I contacted TripAdvisor and got ZERO help trying to figure this issue out. I was able to cancel without a issue (i hope). But due to the last minute change and trying to book a new food tour. I lost money and time and a few brain cells. Who needs that anxiety on vacation?? BE VERY CAUTIOUS
