Fascinating tour, from MLK memorial to Frederick Douglas house. Tour guide, Dion, was informative and helpful. Enjoyed visiting little known memorials, African American Civil War Memorial and beautiful Mary M Bethune statue. Stopped by famous mural on U street and saw Howard University. Very comfortable bus too.

This tour was knowledgeable, exciting, fun and just an altogether good time. This was all due to Nick, our tour guide. I was the best! He kept feeding us so many fun facts and kept us laughing all day.

Unfortunately, we were unable to take this tour. Enough people didn’t sign up so they had to cancel the tour. We didn’t find out it was cancelled until the morning of the tour which was could have been avoided if they left a voicemail, sent an email, or text. Notifying us that the trip was cancelled would have allowed us to make arrangements to do something else.
Great History Tour in DC

We spent 4 hours hitting a lot of locations (Martin King Memorial, Frederick Douglas home-outside, African American Civil War Museum, etc.) and stopped for photos at White House and Capitol Bldg. Last stop dropped us at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where we were able to walk right in-no waiting. Our guide Dion was very knowledgeable and engaging. I would definitely recommend his tour. Learned so much and had a great time.
Best Tour Guide!

One of the best tours I've ever been on, our tour guide was excellent and knowledgeable, well learn!

Wow! Dion gave us a four-hour tour of DC and it could not have been better. Not only did we have no-queue tickets for the African American Museum (extraordinary) but a highly personalised tour of DC and Arlington with this brilliantly informed commentary. Just the right amount of conversation, information and space to take in this monumental city. I could not recommend highly enough. My 20 and 17 year olds were also engrossed for the trip. Thank you Dion we will be back!

Great guide!

After a bit of confusion as to the start time of this tour, we were on our way. Our guide, John, was fantastic. Had tremendous amount of knowledge to share. Could have easily spent more time with him. There was no reserved entry to the museum at this time of year, so perhaps the company should revise the title of the tour. All in all, worthwhile, would enjoy an even longer tour of African American history in DC. Also, company should provide guides with microphones to eliminate need for them to raise their voices to be heard in the van.
Staff& customer service

I enjoyed my time in the Washington DC area. I particularly enjoyed looking at the White House and all the monuments. That was a blessing. However, in regards to the African American museum and culture I was impressed with the overall museum, but I was saddened that the staff inside the museum was not so friendly. The guys in the museum are very nice, respectful and pleasant, but the young women inside the museum was not very friendly particularly in the front security area. They were rude as it relates to them not greeting the guests. No smiles..Some of them had a stone-faced as if to say they didn't want to be there..
