Traveler Tips

Wear comfy shoes as we covered a lot of ground!
It is well paced as it is hilly and recommend taking water ( there are drinking fountains).
Be prepared - it is a lot of walking but at a good pace for all ages.

The Best way to “Hit the High Notes”
Mackenzie_G, Dec 2021
Had a great day with Dustin! He was very informative, friendly and added in some humor. I felt like we had a very personalized tour of DC, this was a great way to hit all the high notes. The group was small, and the tour felt personalized. We would have never been able to see this much or learn this much on our own. Highly recommend this tour!
