5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

The Washington DC African American tour was very informative and enjoyable. The tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. The tour was worth the time and price, especially as it ended at the museum and we didn’t have to wait in line. I referred my family to take the tour when they visit DC in August 2018.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

This was a very nice surprise gem. The driver/guide was extremely knowledgable. He provided lots of information on African American History, Culture and Politics. Highly recommend this tour.

For the person who would like to learn more about the history and culture within the African-American community in DC, I would highly recommend this tour. Kenny the tour guide has a wealth of information and insight about the community and the different sites that we visited. Very professional, insightful, funny and interactive with the tour group.
And the cherry on top, the tour ends with a visit to the African American museum of history and culture. To tell the true, with the amount of information and history at the museum, the visit should be the next day. You will easily spend 4 or more hours at the museum and that is not counting the 3.5 hours with the DC tour.

The tour was well worth the price. The tour guide and driver were a great team. Me and my daughters saw so much more than we expected to see. Jamal was super knowledgeable. The Frederick Douglass home and museum site was amazing. The city is a gold mine and we would never have know so much without the tour and Jamal. So much was explained. Another awesome stop was at the African American Civil War Memorial...Amazing. This tour is definitely one of the best I've been on. If you're hungry for knowledge, a good time, and excellent value, this tour is the one to book. Don't expect to just sit back on a bus, you will definitely be up and about as you reach each destination. The tour finished with our entrance into the Smithsonian National Museum of African American history. I looked online for tickets to this museum for months and there were non to be found. Everything was sold out so when I realized this tour gave us admission to the museum, it was a no-brainer.

The African-American History City Tour was worth every penny because it was a great learning experience. The areas of Washington, the sites. and historical and present day information shared by our amazing guide Lynnette brought everything to life. She was so knowledgeable and took time with questions from the group. I wish to add that the weather that day was awful with heavy rain, wind, and cold temperature, so the group decided not to get out at each stop. Lynnette was flexible about this and gave the group extra time where they did choose to get out. The tour ends in front of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, where Lynnette escorted the group to the entrance and ensured our entry. This was clearly a bonus since the museum continues to have a long booking wait. It is magnificent! I would definitely recommend this tour!

This city tour was disappointing.
The pace was fast, driver drove past historic houses and sites extremely fast and the tour guide was rude at times to customers,
This city tour can be done much better!
HOWEVER, the reserved entry to the Museum of African American History and Culture was OUTSTANDING!
The Museum of African American History and Culture was OUTSTANDING!
The Museum of African American History and Culture was well worth booking the city tour...the museum is a must see for all people and cultures...simply outstanding from an educational and historic contribution to America standpoint!

The tour was excellent! Kenny, our guide, was well-informed, well-organized and pleasant. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Anacostia, Howard University, the Frederick Douglas' National Historic Site, the monument to African-American soldiers, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and other sites. The National Museum of African-American History and Culture is awesome! I spent 4 hours in the museum and saw only half of what it has to offer.I look forward to returning to the museum in the near future.
