Our first thing we did when we arrive was our pub crawl. Jessica was a great history buff. She talked about beer mixed in with history of DC. That was the best time for a beer tour. Definitely doing more tours with the team. She also said yo be adding more cities like New Orleans. Can’t wait to visit again with Jessica. She really knew her way around. We had a great time. Thanks Byron and Liz

David was brilliant, he gave a good history of the area, selected some lovely local beers and managed the small group so there were no awkward moments, it felt more like a night out with friends than an organised tour!

A really enjoyable way to learn more about this amazing city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. We also enjoyed chatting to the others in our group

Such a good time with our amazing guide Jessica enjoying local craft beers in lovely settings. It’s a great way to meet new friends and learn some fun DC history!

Nur was pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great tour!
