Ron was terrific! He was extremely knowledge, funny and entertaining. He shared a lot of interesting facts and showed us things we would have never known about without the tour. We did it our last day which was a nice ending, doing it the first day is a great idea because we were provided with a lot of recommendations. Great activity for all ages!

Took my grandson, age 8, and we both soared, individually. Now my granddaughter has FOMO, and we’re going Thursday. If she has half the fun her brother had, the visit will be well worth it. Instructors were very professional and great with the kids.

My son and I truly enjoyed this tour. Brenda did an outstanding job driving us through history and letting us know interesting anecdotes and events. I highly recommend this tour to everyone one coming to visit DC.

The tour guide was the best, he was knowledgeable and friendly he gave us a lot of recommendations for dinning as well.

Chef Brandon was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, took his time and went above and beyond.
