Jorge kept my family with 2 college kids on their toes. He knew tons of details about US history and the city of DC. We probably learned more with this tour than we would have reading a tour book. The bonus was the private, air conditioned suv stocked with water on a hot 95 degree summer day with 70% humidity. My family and I did the Big Bus tour in another city it was just too crowded. We didn’t stray from his original tour and happy we didn’t. He gave us ample time to walk to each memorial for photos. I HIGHLY recommend them and ask for Jorge.

Jorge Mesquita was amazing! We had a great time and learned so many unique things about D.C that we hadn’t know before. Jorge also made the tour flexible when we wanted to spend more time at a certain location. He also made great recommendations for food, views and shopping. Best decision for our trip!

Andy was an awesome guide. He made it a very educational as well as a fun experience. His knowledge of the Cathedral is unsurpassed. Highly recommend this tour if you want to get the most out of your Cathedral experience!
