5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

Very thorough tour of everything Marine in the DC area! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and received an arranged guided tour at The Marine Corps barracks in DC. On to the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, VA with lunch included at Tun's Tavern located at the museum. A tour of the town of Quantico and marine related facilities, schooling and housing. Our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable and made our personal tour very comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour. Semper Fi!
