“DC in Black”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

This tour was recommended to us by another couple traveling with our party. We called the very next morning on a Sunday of all times and the tour guide graciously accommodated our party of 3. You must take this tour if you want to experience the rich, full history and culture of this town. Juanita is a walking book of interesting stories about the people, town and architecture. We began the tour at the civil war memorial. Our guide made this a very personal experience and I won't ruin it for you. Let's just say, you step into the history of the memorial. Dawn, a clever docent at the museum, was a wealth of information also with a passion for the history and artifacts. The Frederick Douglas House tour was awesome. We ended at the memorials in the National Mall. We even got a taste of DC and U-street! I could say more, but I encourage you to take an afternoon to experience this! She willingly customized our tour as requested at the time of booking allowing us to see exactly the things we wanted to see and so much more.

“DC In Black - VIP Tour Service! A perfect way to experience Washington DC's Black history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

The grandness of our nation's capitol is what it is, because of the generous and important contributions of its Black community to its history, and this intimate tour helps you find this experience. Easy door to door service, and spacious 12 pasenger buses you travel with excellent and knowlegable tour guides and can cover a variety of options, one of which is a DC Black arts tour. My groups interest is Black American literature in particular, so they tailored our tour to highlight those literary highlights around the city for us. Our host (and fabulous owner) Ms. Juanita spoke with us before our arrival, listened to our interests and suggested and then custom designed our tour to really emphasize our specific points of interest. And, to top it off, they include a special rest and comfort break to enjoy some of DC's local food wonders in the area you are traveling. A great way to see another side of Washington, DC! "Get on THIS Bus!"
