Great tour guide and tour but, the ad and information surrounding it indicated that a ticket was included to the top of the Washington Monument. Based on that we booked the tour so we could go to the top of the monument but that was niot part of the tour

Tyrone and Chris were great people. Tyrone knew the answer to any question we had, very upbeat, loves to communicate with everyone, Chris is a great driver and I felt safe with him driving us around. They were always on time and kept the show on the road. I highly suggest you somehow get Tyrone if you are looking for a guide who you want to have conversations with about the history of Washington DC.

Tyrone was the tour guide and Chris was the driver. Chris did a great job maneuvering the traffic, parking in convenient locations for our stop and being very helpful with our ingress/egress. Tyrone was excellent with his historical knowledge and facts as well as very personable. He also was extremely helpful with our ingress and egress ensuring our safety. He was also very helpful by taking our pictures in perfect locations. We highly recommend these individuals and company.
