We had a great time! My guests from Atlanta really enjoyed the tour. Smiley was our tour guide/bus driver and he was great. We liked his sense of humor and he was very knowledgeable. Some of us are from the DC area and know the sights and even we learned some new things.

Thank you and keep up the good work. I have more guests visiting soon and will get tickets for this tour for them.
