What am amazing experience. Our tour guide Dre was engaging from start to finish. We took the tour during MLK Weekend and the weather was BRUTAL. Even w/the frigid air we still had a great time. Our AA museum tour was scheduled to start from 1pm but the museum decided to close early (2pm) due to a snowstorm. Not only did the tour company ensure we were able to get in the next day (MLK Day) but they also allowed the tkt to be used until end of yr if we couldn’t make it. Overall great experience and would recommend!

Dre was an amazing and charming tour guide! He had us laughing but also shared SO much important information that most Americans never learn. He has inspired me to continue the learning and bring back the things I have learned to my second grade classroom. Thank you Dre for taking us on your tour of DC, I will definitely recommend to friends!!

Great tour, off-putting line for museum
Christine_C

Tour guide Drew was excellent and very well informed. Learned a lot. Driver was great. On/off tour was very convenient and bus was always nearby. Only drawback: we had timed entry tickets to AfAm museum. We were supposed to get entry at 1:30. At 2:30,we still had not advanced in the very very long line. We gave up since we no longer believed the “just 5 more minutes “ promise museum staff had been promising for the last hour. If we had the chance to use a restroom we could’ve waited in line longer. So if you’re booking this tour expecting quick access to the museum, be prepared to wait- timed entry was not realistic. This is not the tour’s fault, but had we known that timed entry at 1:30 meant they we’ll start waiting in a very long line at 1:30, we could’ve prepared better. The last few stops on the tour had no bathrooms so plan accordingly and pack food/drinks.

Christine_C, thanks for selecting our tour, and for taking the time to share feedback about your experience! We apologize that the popularity of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture causes even the timed-entry pass line to experience delayed entry at times.
