We got off to a slow start, and the weather was cold and blustery. But the tour was excellent and worth braving the cold. Our party of 5 were the only ones on the tour. Chris was an experienced driver and extremely accommodating, helping to load and unload our mobility cart at every stop. Sally, our narrator, was very personable and knowledgeable. Chris dropped us off at our parking garage at the end of a great tour. If in Washington for only a day or two, this is THE tour to take.
